    98 K1500 In My Eyes — with plenty of power to get off of a stop light in a hurry and pull anything that i will put behind it, this truck is amazing. however the suspension is not strong enough to handle off road abuse. with that being said i absolutly adore the way this truck looks, even though it is a little on the ragged side of like it still has plenty of eye catching attributes. gas mileage is great for a truck with a small block, though parts can get pricy. as far as the fun factor, it does have a small block 5.7 vortech, so that right there says it all.

    Primary Use: Commuting to work

    Pros: yes

    1998 Chevrolet C1500 W/t — This is my grandfather's RCSB C1500 (i.e., 2WD) W/T with the L35 Vortec 4300. He bought it secondhand out of a lease when it was six months old and has owned it since. Compared to my K1500 Cheyenne, it definitely feels more responsive, agile, and easy to drive due to it having a two foot shorter wheelbase. It feels like it gets up and goes just as easily as my truck, too, since it lacks the weight of 4WD system and extended cab. It's quite basic (power nothing, vinyl floor, but does have the 4L60-E automatic), which is the way a true work truck should be. All my truck has on it is cruise control and carpet, though! To my knowledge it's never had any major work done, which is no surprise. Hopefully we'll still have this truck around for years to come!

    Primary Use: Utility (towing boats, transporting cargo, etc.)

    Pros: Reliable, well built, and a great work truck

    Cons: Some may consider it too basic and boring

    Like A Rock. — Performance- Obviously, being a '90s pickup with 305 cubic inches that ignite 235 horses/280 ft.-lbs., this truck isn't a rocket by any means. But it does have it's get-up-and-go, but the transmission is a bit hesitant. Handling obviously sucks. Tons of body roll, understeer, steering feel is NOT there at all, not too agile, there's play in the wheel. But, hey, this is a pickup and these were the days where they weren't Cadillacs. The braking itself is good, but the pedal is unbelievably mushy and it's beyond numb. Build Quality- Well, since I've beaten the hell out of this, I have broken stuff. Like two axles, distributor cap and rotor, power steering pump, and a wheel hub, but I also got it at 180K. Now it's at 200K. Original drivetrain including transmission. The interior obviously leaves much to be desired in terms of structure, fit-and-finish, ergonomics, and materials, but it's not absolute crap. It's held up very well. Other than those things I've mentioned, this baby's solid. Doors shut solidly, engine purrs, not many creaks and rattles, everything works normally--nothing's loose or seized. Appearance- The interior, though bland, isn't bad looking. It's just kinda there to hold the HVAC system and radio and to cover all the wires and good stuff like that. The exterior, however, is gorgeous. In my opinion. This bodystyle of the Chevy pickup is one of the best-looking. Simple, yet classy. This truck looks like it was made to work. Cost of Ownership- Gas mileage obviously isn't anything spectacular, but I do get better than the EPA figures. At least in the summer. I get 16.5 MPG or so combined, and in the winter, I get about 14 combined. It's rated at 12 City/17 Highway/14 combined. And I've gotten 21 MPG on the highway. But as I have broken a few parts from taking it offroading and getting the front end airborne, sending it through deep puddles at 30 MPH, and flooring it on occasion. But I'm willing to pay for it. The most expensive thing I've broken on here so far is probably the wheel hub (which wasn't really "broken", just the bearing was humming and ABS sensor was shot) which was about 120 bucks or so. I can't remember. But it had the ABS sensor in it which shoots up the price. Fun Factor- Obviously you can't take it to a track, but it is a lot of fun to take out on the trails, make it do donuts in the street and rainy roads, powersliding in the snow and locking right into the snow when the 4X4 is on. It's also fun when you're at the beach and you can chill out in the back of it.

    Primary Use: Commuting to work

    Pros: Looks, durability, structure

    Cons: Performance, road manners, any sort of feel

    Dont Scrap Them — Cant beat this truck. The Vortec 350 is absoluteley amazing, and the 4l60e is a damn good trans. And it always sounds good with twin super 40 flomasters and a K&N Cold Air Kit. And you can jump this thing and not knopck off the alighnment.. Best Truck Ever

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

    Pros: Almost Everything

    Cons: Needed to come with a manual

    Bottom-line... Like A Rock. — Performance - Can't complain. Not a ton of horse, but all the torque you can handle... Build Qaulity - What more can a man ask for in his truck? Appearance - C'mon, seriously... Cost of Ownership - It's paid off... but boy does it eat. Fun Factor - Driven in the right location I couldn't think of anything more fun.

    Primary Use: Utility (towing boats, transporting cargo, etc.)

    Pros: Everything about it...

    Cons: You'd want to avoid this truck if you hated life...

    Great For Hauling Quads And Water And The 30 Mpg On The Highway You Cant Beat That With A Truck — Not an Extended and the 2 wheel drive is not very good unless you have some very aggressive tires on it along with a couple hundred pounds of weight in the box, Its Great on gas and the 4.3 Liter V6 is a very Proven and reliable Motor

    Pros: Good for hauling crap!

    Cons: 2 wheel Drive not good in the winter
