Cons

curb magnet lol

Lots Of Potential — 5.3L V8 + shift kit + posi trac = a good time. lots of acceleration and little body role. clear coat is peeling and slight body damage. interior is in great condition. prolly gets 13 mpg in town and 18 mpg on the highway. i'm running synthetic oils, duralast ceramic brake pads, and just had my tranny rebuilt. running goodyear tires, all around tire...like to get lose at 2 grand. all in all its a blast to drive. hard to beat american muscle.

My Z-71 — I love my truck, I traded in a 2000 Honda Civic in on it. The ride is great, decent gas mileage. Good get up and go, handles great in mud, and on the road. Feels very safe would love to have been the first owner of it. My kids love it and so do their friends my wife hates driving it so I know it was be mine and she will not borrow it and return it without gas and dirty. It is a Z71 edition and is fully loaded. I love my heated seats when it is cold out.

Strong as he**

Cons

Weak Acceleration

55

2001 Chev. Silverado Thunder — Little weak on the acceleration but otherwise a great truck. Has stood the test of time. Just starting to bubble rust on the rear wheel wells which isn't a surprise and very repairable. Would be nicer with some way to organize the backseat as opposed to everything just rolling around.

Pros

Tall, so you can see over most other traffic. Smooth. Comfortable. Sexy, in it's black & chrome.

Cons

Didn't have the worlds greatest turning radius... but, part of it could have been the extended cab length of the truck.

55

My Favorite! — It was my favorite "car" ever! And I used to buy/trade every 2 years or so. With a history rich in Cadillacs, Toyotas, etc., this truck was simply my cowboy Cadillac. [grins] I so miss it. Would have kept it but sadly, it was a lease. Had to go.

Big Blue — My old truck has been so good to me and my family. I've taken this truck on many long road trips and back country trails. She has taken us every where I've wanted to go. I've done many 4 wheeling trips with my buddies in the rock crawlers and I have to say she has been great for those types of outing. I've slept many a night in the bed looking up at the stars way out in the dessert.

It Was A Good Truck Overall — my very first truck. needed new shocks/brakes/and tie rods. had a V6 with ok power. towing wasn't too great but snow/ice/rain/mud/sleet was nothing to it with the all terrain tires and 4x4. it was a great first truck.

Best Truck I Ever Owned! — I liked having a full back seat, but wished the doors opened the other direction. It was difficult for passengers to enter or exit truck in tight parking spaces. I loved how smooth the truck rode and how comfortable the seats were.
