1988 GMC Sierra SL 4x4 5.7 Liter from North America
Unreal power and torque
Bought the truck because the guy didn't think he needed 4x4 any more, and thought the truck was too old with only 143,000 on the odometer. I bought the truck from the guy that bought it new from Faulkner GMC, and he took super good care of it.
It's a longbed with the 350 and automatic with air. On the way home from the fella's house, the exhaust fell off, so now it's quite loud.
I run 15W40 Fleet oil in it, the motor was bored .40 over so it's built to run.
It needs front brake rotors and pads soon, and could use a set of tires. It's 4 wheel drive, and it's a true 4x4 system. My buddy thought it would be a good idea to go through the pond on his farm; he got in frame deep (also has a 1988 Chevy Shortbed). I hooked up to him in 4 low, and yanked him right out like he wasn't even stuck.
Not sure what these guys with imports are thinking when they come up beside me at lights?? The only thing I can't pass is a gas station.
Wish it was a 4 speed, so I could launch the truck off the line better. If I put it in 1st and shift up it does good, but it needs a 4 speed.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Don't Know
