A Truck with Character

by Sarge from McAllen TX on Sat Aug 27 2011

I bought this primarily to pull a RV camper. Camper is sold but I still have this truck and will probably keep it forever. Had 72K miles on it when I got it in 2005, Now it has 92K So far problems: Water pump; Ball joint and some other front end parts; brakes; tires; windshield; driver's side inside door handle (twice) and recently the expensive fuel pump that is in the gas tank. Still it is VERY comfortable to drive and rides like a car, really. It has not lost any value since I bought it! Amazing! It sets in the garage with a nice coat of wax and doesn't get very much use but when you need a truck, you need a truck!

It gets the job done

by ThatGreenZ71 from Irwin PA on Fri Jul 28 2017

My first truck, 5.0(305) Vortec, not gonna lie its pretty gutless. It gets about what you would expect milage wise with gas, probably better than me being that I drive like I stole it. Even still it always starts up for me even when it had an almost dead battery. Now as a daily driver its not the most economical but its not horrible, when it comes to truck stuff not gonna lie its kind of horrible. I have the Z71 package if it makes a difference but it sags as much with me and my buddy both around 200lbs as my dads 08 1500 with a 4000lb trailer, I hooked up a camper which was around 6000lbs (supposed to have a 6500lb capacity) and i thought the wheels were going to come off the ground. If you're going to do a lot of hauling I don't recommend it, if you're going to do the occasional landscape project, or tow a little boat it should do fine.
