Eh..its Loud And Fun And Gets Lots Of Looks — Engine needs a swap, could use a new paint job, although its not necessary. Windows could be retinted too. Maybe even a working radio would be nice! Stupid guys had to steal my $3000 sound system back in 08' haha. What ever, the truck will be restored soon!

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

Pros: 6in lift, 2in body lift

35in mud grapplers

Custom, short cut side exhaust


Cons: Misfires

Sputters

bad MPG

Water spots all over truck

Great Work Truck — Best Chevy I have ever owned and just about dead reliable. Great for hauling loads, people, never overheated even towing across the desert. Still looks good after 10 years. I recommend the 5.3 motor highly as it is based on the venerable 327.

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

Pros: Great work truck

Cons: Bulky in tight alleys

Reliable, And Great Work Truck — This pickup doesn't feature a lot of "bells and whistles", but it does come with a good, long-life motor that is relatively easy to maintain and use. It is a great work truck, for light duty work. But if it is needed for anything more than light duty, then it is not going to be the best fit. Fuel economy was not great.

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

Pros: Easy to Manuever. Relatively easy to Maintain. Good, reliable usage.

Cons: Not a lot of power, but that is to be expected out of this particular vehicle. Not very good fuel economy, considering it is smaller than most of the full size options.

'ol Blue — Loved this truck. Hauled and towed many things. Very dependable, easy ride no engine troubles whatsoever. Would definitely buy again but without the half doors. I traded her in at 132000 miles and she has never let me down. I did basic maintenance and had a champ of a truck for a decade.

Pros: Drives like a champ. Very dependable car, easy to work on.

Cons: The half doors were suicide doors- always had to adjust them & eventually couldn't adjust any longer so the "leaked" air. Just a bench for passengers- not roomy for kids in car seats.

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: Great power and reliable.

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: Good all around vehicle.  Cheap for year model.

Cons: some maintenance required with high miles, nothing major.

Perfect Truck For All Needs — This truck was a limo, a moving truck, a hauler, a camping tent, a bus, there is nothing that this truck can't do. It's been extremely reliable. After 135000 miles the only thing I have replaced was the thermostat. If I was not planning on having a large family I would keep mine.

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: Great truck. Extremely reliable, and dependable.  

Cons: Small back seat.
