    Decent Vehicle. — Great truck! Love the looks of the outside, inside is pretty plain even for a almost loaded vehicle. Runs and drives great. Chevrolet should really consider making the Z71 package a little bit taller truck. You buy a 4X4 and it sits too low like a 2wd.

    Primary Use: Commuting to work

    Pros: One of the best looking model Chevy trucks made.

    Cons: plain interior

    Love It Best Bang For Buck — Performance- I had bear breaks installed 3000 grand best investment ever stopped on a dim and could power slide any corner if needed. I had cold air exauhst chip bolts ons and such with 4.10 rear end and could smoke any truck almost kept side by side with silverado ss and i only had a 5.3l. amazing truck. tranny is a little weak if adding alot more power but for normal use its alright.

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

    Pros: fast reliable

    Cons: weak tranny.

    Glad We Only Leased It — Hauled our family around in comfort. Drove good in the winter. Just was not up to the task of hauling our camper. Found out we do not like clamshell doors for the kids. Overall a good truck just not for us.

    Primary Use: Family transportation

    Pros: pretty fast for a truck comfortable

    Cons: doen't like heavy loads

    Single Cab Pickup — The truck was great for me at the time, but I ended up trading it in for more space. Ended up in an extended cab after this truck. The performance was OK, nothing spectacular. No mechanical issues with the truck. Interior and exterior styling were good, nice looking truck. Cost of ownership was not bad at all.

    Primary Use: Commuting to work

    Pros: Truck

    Cons: Single Cab

    Daily Driver — Unreal Horse Power from a 5.3L, definatly making it into my Mudder once i can find a new Daily Driver. No Repairs ever, just changing tires often cause she burns em off. But of Course, Terrible Gas Milage. With some Aftermarket Rims and Some Nice Toyo M/Ts it looks sick!!

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

    Pros: Alota WHP outa a 5.3!

    Cons: Gas Milage.

    Overall:

    A Big, Simple Machine For Big, Simple People Such As Myself — Plenty of grunt, excellent brakes even with rear drums, decent but wallowy handling from the factory. The 3.23 rearend means good mileage on the highway, but pokey acceleration around town, despite 335 lb/ft of torque. Torque management is heavy handed, and the 4 speed automatic sucks. Curb weight is not outrageous, but still 500 lbs heavier than my 1992 model. Despite all that, it will easily crank out mid-7 second 0-60 times and effortlessly hit the 99mph speed limiter. Aftermarket modifications can greatly enhance performance. I get about 17mpg around town and 21-22 on the highway. I've seen as high as 25mpg. Build quality is erratic, but it should hold together for a long, long time. The dash plastic is the hardest, most obnoxiously cheap material known to man. Tons of aftermarket parts available, bulletproof engine, and probably the last of the Chevy trucks recognizable as a "Chevy Truck" rather than an "Amorphous slab of sheetmetal".

    Primary Use: Commuting to work

    Pros: LS engine, big front brakes, easy as hell to maintain, parts are cheap, decent highway mileage, fairly comfortable for long drives

    Cons: Inconsistent assembly quality, infamous steering shaft clunk, lots of wheel hop, ancient transmission
