Was A Very Dependable Truck — It was a low budget mudder and my work truck but didnt really work as family car It needed a fuel pump at end of ownership It did me well in all usage as work horse mud runner It only cost me $800 and earn me more than that

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: Had too trade it for 99 silverado

Cons: Not for family use

If You Wanna Have A Car Thats Just For Fun I Would Recomend You Get One Of These — performance is great, it has a 5.7L 350 with a mild cam, braking and handling could use a lil work, the only repairs it needs is body work, appearance is nice could use a few touch ups, gas mileage is about 22 miles to the gallon, its really fun to drive as long as i keep my foot off the floor

Primary Use: Sport/fun (spirited driving, track racing, off-roading, etc.)

Pros: its gotta v8

Cons: its not loud enough

S-truck From The Very Beginning — 180,000 one-owner miles. I was going to sell it a few year ago and found out it is actually worth more than I thought. So I'm in the process of restoring it. What's next? Paint, lift lips, bushwackers (3rd new set), new bumpers, hitch and lift! I'll replace the 2.8 with a 350 when this one goes. Hmmm... maybe at 250,000 miles? Don't laugh. It's paid for! My other car? a 2006 Mustang GT. The weather in Denver tells me which love to drive every day.

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: Not many people lift S-10s

Cons: Could get better than 15 mpg

Great Gas Saver Truck — I loved this old truck, but since it was 2wd it was not for me. Yet it was great on gas and really went toe-to-toe with the 4WD trucks. It was a fun truck to use for fishing and as a daily driver. The trucks were solid and easy to maintain.

Primary Use: Sport/fun (spirited driving, track racing, off-roading, etc.)

Pros: Great MPG in a small truck

Cons: for me it was that it was 2wd

Great Car. — lots of power from the 350 with twin turbo. small truck but lots of power. dont be surprised from its looks. it can go like hell. it needs better mounts for the exhaust and the turbos need better springs but overall this is a good truck. this thing is so fun. can do a burnout like nothing. accelerates like a corvette. you step on the gas and your going to be blown away.

Primary Use: Sport/fun (spirited driving, track racing, off-roading, etc.)

Pros: it can compete with a corvette z01 and keep up. can blow by some foriegn racers like the spyder, from lambo.

Cons: too much power for the size

Best 600 Bux I Ever Spent — Slow as hell, no power but bought it for 600 bux and have put 43000 KMs on it, only replaced the gas tank and tires. I'd trust this lil truck to go anywhere. Actually, if you powershift and shift short, about 4500 it gets to 55-60 MPH fairly quick and always barks 3rd gear lol... I once stop lighted a full Dodge Ram with a 318 Magnum who instigated the race... I was a nose ahead to about 50 MPH then he started pulling lol... Best vehicle I have owned as a daily driver to date. Love it and GREAT on gas. [5 speed].

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: hauling my dirt bikes...

Cons: mehh... if you need to seat more than two.. buy ext cab.

Its Decent — its got plenty of power but it sucks gas like nonother. its a standard cab style but i wished it was an extended cab. the 4.3 liter pushes close to 300 hp. it had a 2.5 in it but it got blew up horribly. im hoping to sell it . t he exhaust is brand new with dual cherry bomb. the braking sucks. its fun to punch it from a red light

Pros: the sound

Cons: the looks

Best. Truck. Evah. — This truck is the best. It was light so you could spin around and burn out if you had to, it was stick shift, it was loud, and didnt ever get any engine problems or any other major problems.

Pros: Handling; Braking; Acceleration; Stick shift; Loud; No major problems

Cons: My mom rolled it!
