Summary:

A great platform to build a street/off-road truck or a performance street/strip truck

Faults:

Transmission went at 440,000km.

Replaced exhaust at 442,000km with custom 3"

444,000 replaced heater control box (Digital)

Replaced Radiator 445,000.

General Comments:

I get about 800km to a tank in the city and 1000+ on the highway.

For the amount KM on the truck it has only a little rust on the cab corners and everything else is very solid.

It handles decent, acceleration is fairly slow with the diesel, but I am willing to give up acceleration for the mileage!

I have a 91 GMC Sierra 4.3 5-speed; it has 193,000 miles on it. This trucks burns no oil, the only parts I had to replace was differential seal where drive shaft enters differential, and universals in rear drive shaft, (original u-joints). The 4-wheel drive work terrific, overall the truck is the best vehicle I've owned.
