Best Truck Ever

I bought this 96 Chev Mark III Black PU in Jan of 1997 new and sold it in 2015 with only 88,000 miles on it. In all those years, I was never happier. Went thru two wrecks, one almost totaled and it saved me and my passenger. It was beautiful with the Mark III added. Inside and outside just beautiful. Replaced tires, plugs, water pump, windshield, brakes, plus my regular oil changes in all those years. Always kept in garage so paint job was shiny and beautiful. Cried when I sold it but got old and needed an automatic shift due to arthritis. Chevrolet makes a fine truck, just everything worked fine on it, as it was a 6 cyl. and gas mileage was good, engine was no problem ever. It was great for hauling lumber, and furniture, as I moved lots of times. Also my german shepherd rode with me everywhere I went in it. It served me well and I was sad to see it go. Still have my memories.


Best truck I have ever owned

I love my truck, extended cab 3 door short bed with the Vortec 5.7 (350) z71 with push button 4x4. 10 bolt limited slip, 3:42 gearing, 33 inch mud terrains and average about 18 highway. The only complaint I have is the dash mounted cup holder, especially when the heat is blowing on a cold drink. This truck will literally run forever and if it doesn't then I will drive it til it dies then probably fix it and do it all again. ~Bowtie til I die~


Most reliable truck I've ever owned

Great truck, Bluetooth stereo system tinted windows lift kit, new transmission and engine Absolutely nothing can stop this bad not from running, absolutely beautiful truck
