What a way to travel and get the job done at the same time. by Bull-of-the-woods from LA (Lower Alabama) on 03/21/2001. Trim: 2001 Chevrolet Silverado 3500 LS Ext. Cab 2WD, Owned less than 1 year.
Pros: Ride (even with duals) is very nice. Power is awesome. I can smoke most other vehicles from a standing start. My 32.5' fifth wheel highboy camper doesn't even make it grunt. The extended cab is more roomier that Ford or Dodge. I definately get looks everywhere I go. I am proud to be called the owner of this truck.
Cons: So far, there is nothing I dislike about this vehicle. When I picked it up, the remote door locks didn't work. Took it back to the dealer, had to remove the dash, no receiver (transmitter?). The part was installed 4 weeks later. Works fine now. Every where you look (internet, dealer show rooms, word of mouth) stated that these trucks would be in the dealer show rooms last fall. YOU SIMPLY CAN'T FIND THE DARN THINGS. EVERY DEALER I TALKED TO WOULD SHRUG THEIR SHOULDERS AND INFORM YOU THAT THEY WERE EXPECTING DELIVERY OF "ONE" TWO OR THREE MONTHS DOWN THE ROAD. DON'T have the space to explain all the trouble of finding this truck.
Overall review: I love it, it does the job and would buy another one (but I don't need two). I am not totally biased as to make and model. I have owned Fords in the past, and I'm sure that one of them would do what I needed it to do. In fact, Fords have a unique ability that Chevy doesn't have. Just the other day, I saw a brand new Ford pushing an old Chevy, WITH A CHAIN. A Dodge was running right behind trying to learn the technique.
