I complete agree with the guy who put a comment befor me, you can't go 60 mph then fly over the rail road tracks that's just stupid! Then you think its the trucks fault HA.

You went over the tracks at 60mph, how high did it jump them? this is not the dukes of hazzerd slow down!

Wow 60 mph over railroad tracks? I knew a girl in high school that went less than 60 over a track and went airborne in a Ford Ranger and killed one of the passengers. That is totally dangerous and no wonder that truck makes weird noises. Your lucky it's still together and running hopping tracks like that.

Piece of Junk eh?... "I was doing 60...the truck flipped"?...switch it around... should sound more like "The truck went over some railroad tracks while I was doing 60, and because I was doing 60 the rear breaks locked up on me, and I flipped my wonderful truck in to a field" maybe that's the way it went?

I would be at least grateful I was in a domestic full size truck instead of being crushed in an late model full size import truck. Your driving habits are telling you something it would be wise to heed them. I hope I am driving behind you.

I don't know where you all live, but I cross railway lines crossing paved highways at 60 all the time. That is when my 1994 K1500 is running. It mostly rests in the garage, mine or the dealers. They never have been able to properly repair that intake manifold gasket. Now it has taken to quiting for no apparent reason then starting after it has a little rest. Time to trade it in I guess. Import or domestic? Both have their fiercely loyal fans. Hard to separate emotion, fact and fiction.

I took my Ford across a lot of railroad tracks around 60 or better. If they are level then there is not really a problem...

Only a 102 thousand miles? Someone rodded it bad! My truck has 257 thousand! Runs like a champ! Still will smoke um down my street. Stock motor, never been touched.

Don't know why you had so many problems with the truck. We have had two of those generation of trucks, and haven't had any problems with them. Both had well over half a millions kilometers. While the one truck odometer stopped working at about 250, the other trucks just kept on rolling over. It was at 542000 when we parked it. The rust had got to the frame, and was making the truck dangerous to drive. I myself now have a 94 K1500 4x4 and love the thing. It's bulletproof, and goes in any weather!

I have a '94 Silverado with the 5.7L. It had 90,000 on it when I bought it from the bank, and it now has 240,000 on it with only one major replacement. The limited slip differential let go at 150,000. One of the retainer bearings failed and it slid into the case and chewed it up until it made itself an opening and escaped!! It's a tough old bird for sure. CT in Texas
