Worth while truckd

Been driving a 96 C2500 for two years now. Put 100k miles on it and got the truck with 168k. Only issue it's ever given me was a faulty Mass airflow sensor. No other issues, taken it from Florida to Texas twice and has done great. Only complaint I have is 13mpg out of the 5.7V8. Great truck overall and would totally buy another for the right price


Great truck to drive and cool around town

This car has met all my needs except A/C. I?ve always loved this truck. It?s fast and reliable and all in all a great truck.


1996 K2500 6.5 Liter Turbo Diesel

I purchased my Cheyene from my state department of transportation as surplus. they used it for ten years then auctioned it for $5600.00 with 130,000 miles on it. I had many required maintenance trips to the shop. But have put another 100,000 miles on the running gear. Recently I replaced the transmission but the engine is still very good. No blow by and no oil consumption. I had to replace the rear main seal so I put a new transmission in. The old transmission was still running but had too many miles on it for me. The miles and cost 25 cents per mile for maintenance and diesel modifications says alot about these trucks. I still get 14 miles per gallon too. About the same as my old B2200. It is a good old fashioned diesel pickup that sounds like a truck and rides like a truck.
