  • I have a 2001 Chevy Silverado 1500 work truck Long bed, color white, completely basic, crank roll up windows, vinyl flooring, Cost a couple dollars for a basic key, that's right no fob or key chip, just a good old fashioned metal key. The ignition is so worn out the key just comes out of the ignition even when it's on. Nowadays you couldn't do that with more modern trucks. 4.8 liter engine with almost 194,000 miles, bought it 3 years ago, used to be a motorcycle hauler at a dealership, then had 168,000 miles paid almost $2400, since then it's been a great truck. By next year it will be considered a Classic at 20 years. Good old Chevrolet !

  • The problem with these trucks, at least in the salt belt, is the trucks fall apart around the engine. The tbar mounts, frames, rear spring shackles all of them rot away in no time with hardly any winter use, the trucks that run around in the winter are so rusty the bed liner is the only thing for the “bed floor” the frames are rotted and broke. These trucks also ride terrible so not really what he’s talking about, my 99 half ton rides worse than my 85 1ton ford diesel. The electrical systems in these trucks are a dumpster fire and they leak more fluids than a Detroit.

  • Believe it or not there is immense psychology behind the truck design and I'm speaking of why did they put that huge bed and The Four Doors like that on it? It was a government work truck by design for transporting more than one park ranger. so four doors made sense. Then you might ask, what about the long bed and their real reason behind it believe it or not is because they wanted the truck to be unique to the park service and they didn't want the community to buy them up afterwards they literally designed something that nobody else would want later thus helping to help keep it unique to the park service ( not to mention guys in those days wouldn't be caught dead in one of those stupid looking trucks unless it was up in the woods somewhere because that was the era when the short bed Stepside was real sexy I had a GMC Scottsdale that had a wooden bed in that era and all the girls went skiing with me I'm pretty sure that wouldn't have happened if I was driving that dumpy looking truck ) it's the stupidest thing but believe it or not the real reason they did it

  • This hits close to home for me. Years ago, my friend's dad had a 2003-2005 era chevy 2500 HD duramax. I remember the thing that surprised me the most about it was how well it rode for being a 3/4 ton. Thick cushioned seats combined with nice tall sidewall tires equated to a ride that was shockingly smooth and surpasses that of modern cars. Also that pre-emissions duramax was reliable, and powerful, without any unnecessary garbage on it. By contrast, I had a 2008 sierra 1500 with a 5.3 vortec with cylinder deactivation. That thing had a nasty lifter tick that would come and go and was embarrassing. Also, the seats were certainly stiffer and less comfortable. Further complicating this was a leveling kit and some wheels and tires from a 2014+ era SLT / Denali. End result was a very rough riding and uncomfortable vehicle that was plagued with mechanical issues. One of the biggest generational downgrades in truck history.

Compared to Ford or Dodge on early 2000s there are noticeably a lot more Chevy and GMC trucks still being used and abused for work or personal driving. Even at that go back a few more years there are still lots of early 90s up to late 90s trucks still on the road today, that is impressive and says a lot.

  • The original LS motors were the best thing GM has ever done. Variable valve timing? NOPE don't need it. Cylinder deactivation? Nope. Fancy pants dual overhead cams? NO. Keep it simple and use the same pushrod design with it's roots dating to 1955 for reliability but with modern fuel injection and coil system for a little more efficiency. This was the perfect culmination of old school and new school, snatch one of this up while you can!!

  • For the record, I have always preferred the smaller rims and larger size tire look as opposed to the larger rims with tires that have next to no side wall. I currently have a 2017 Chevrolet Silverado 1500 LT Z71 4x4 crew cab short bed with the 5.3 liter V-8 and 6 speed automatic transmission. I just put a leveling kit on it last month along with 17” Fuel “Assault” wheels, with 285 BF Goodrich TKO II All Terrain tires on it. I also agree with what the guy in the video said. When I lived back home in San Diego, I worked for my Uncles drywall company. We would all put on anywhere between 60k to 80k miles a year on our trucks. My Uncle had a 1988 Chevrolet Silverado 1500 4x4 single cab, long bed with a 350 V-8 and a 4 speed automatic transmission. That truck lasted a very long time and I think had 369k on it when he finally got another truck. The only thing ever done to it was general maintenance. The batteries, alternator and starter would always go out around the same time, at every 100k miles or so. In fact, every GM vehicle I have ever owned or known someone to own has always had those same issues around that time too. On my Uncles truck, the transmission did go out at I think around 250k but those were hard miles. That truck essentially hauled drywall, drywall mud, steel studs, other construction materials and demo material almost on a daily basis too so my Uncle got his monies worth out of that truck. My cousin had either a 1991 or a 1992 Chevrolet Silverado 2500 4x4 extra cab long bed. It had a 454 V-8 and a 4 speed automatic transmission in it. That truck was indestructible! My cousin finally traded it in at I think 450k miles on it. And other than general maintenance, the batteries, alternators and starters going out around every 100k on it, nothing on that truck ever broke and like my Uncles truck, it too was worked very hard, on a daily basis. It never broke down. Both my Uncle and cousin finally got new trucks in the late 90’s and early 2000’s and had those trucks for a really long time too but never had any issues to my knowledge? I moved out of State in 2003 and then my Uncle retired in 2005 so he stopped using his truck after then for construction. My cousin then went to work for his brother in law, who was married to his sister. Since 2005, he has had at least 1 or 2 other Chevrolet or GMC trucks and has never had any issues with them in spite of the hard miles and use of them. After moving to Colorado in 2003, in 2004, I bought a 1 owner, used 1997 GMC Sierra 1500 4x4 extra cab regular bed. It had a 350 V-8 and 4 speed automatic transmission in it. When I bought it the truck had I think 85k in miles on it. The truck had been babied all of its life too. My only issue with that truck was the oil cooler lines constantly leaked. It was a manufacturing defect and was very common with that model year of truck. After replacing them for the 3rd or 4th time and having the oil leaks keep coming back every 6 months to a year later, I finally gave up on them and stopped replacing them. Instead, I just checked my oil more frequently but the oil leak was always very minimal so it never caused me to have to add any oil in between oil changes. I kept that truck from 2004, until I think 2012. I sold it to a family friend of my wife’s because my wife had just recovered from having breast cancer but we were struggling financially due to all of the medical bills that were piling up. The same person still owns the truck to this day, and lives just down the street from us. When he bought the truck from me, it had around 150k to 160k in miles on it. The truck also had the battery, alternator and starter go out at around 100k to 115k in miles on it and when I sold it, the A/C compressor had also just gone out on it too. The guy that still owns it now has around 300k in miles on it. He has had a few minor things go out on it but nothing major. He tried selling it back to me a few years ago but wanted the same amount of money that I sold it to him for. He bought it for less than KBB value and somewhat low balled us on the purchase price because he knew that we were desperate for money due to our situation. When he tried selling the truck back to me, it was well above and over KBB value. I loved the truck and wanted it back but wasn’t going to let him screw us over again, for a second time. In 2015, I bought another 1 owner, used, 2012 Chevrolet Silverado 1500 LT Z71 4x4 crew cab short bed. That truck had a 5.3 liter V-8 with a 6 speed automatic transmission. That truck had very low miles on it when I bought it, and never game me a single issue. I think it only had around 38k to 40k in miles on it when I bought it. I only had it for 2 years though and went by our local Chevrolet dealer to simply look at the newer generation of Silverado trucks. The dealership had my current truck very competitively priced. The GM of the dealership had used the truck as his personal vehicle for a few months and it had right around 5k in miles on it. The truck had an MSRP of right around $51k. The new 2018’s were just starting to come in and GM had such pretty big discounts and rebates. I ended up buying the truck for $1k under invoice due to the miles. Traded in my 2012 and got an additional $2k or $3k in loyalty rebates. As a result of everything, I was able to buy the truck for $38.5k out the door. So even though I had no intentions of buying another truck that day, the deal was simply way to good to pass on. I’ve now had the truck for exactly 3 years, almost to the day. And in spite of the 5k in miles that were on the truck when I originally bought it, the truck only has 21k in miles on it now. The place that I go to work too, is only 3 to 3 1/2 miles away from my house. Since my job is so close to home, I only put anywhere from 5k to 6k in miles a year on that truck. Back home in California, I used to do that at least once a month or every 3 to 4 weeks. Now that my 3 year/36,000 mile bumper to bumper warranty expired a few weeks ago, I went to my bank and bought an extended warranty offered through a company that they work with. We bank at a Credit Union and the extended warranty was only $2k, but it is a $0.00 deductible, 8 years/120,000 miles bumper to bumper extended warranty that is also fully refundable at the end should the warranty never be used. Or it will prorate any amount paid out during that time. So if I spent $500.00 in warranty repair work within that 8 years/120,000 miles, then I would be reimbursed $1,500.00 back. My family has always been a Chevrolet truck family. I couldn’t tell you how many GM trucks that we have all owned over the decades but, they have always worked very well for us. In fact, I cannot recall a single 1 from myself or any other family member ever having a lemon 1. My only dislike for my current 1 and my last 1 is the rear differential locker. That thing was no doubt, designed by some idiot hipster that thought his idea on paper was fantastic and everyone would love that the rear locker automatically engages at low speeds if it detects rear wheel slippage. While maybe a great idea on paper, it is a horrible idea in practically. I love going off roading and have done so throughout my entire life. There are times and in many places, where I need a minimum of at least a rear locker. However, I cannot have a rear locker engaging and disengaging on its own when I am on an off road trail and need at least 1 axle/differential permanently locked. I need to engage the locker and keep it locked the entire time or disengage it at my choosing. The way the current rear locker on my Silverado is set up, would get me in a lot of trouble on some very technical trails that I go on, or would like to go on but can’t, because of GM’s idiotic design. Hopefully, they change that and go back to a manually selectable rear locker (and front locker as well, considering they are also needed too!). If GM does not do that, then this Silverado will be my last Silverado even though full size GM trucks have always treated us well!
