"This truck has always been in the shed. It was bought brand new. No rust. We added stainless steel running boards and the stainless body strip. Seats are not worn at all. Has a hard cover on it that locks. Tires put on new just last winter. Only gets driven approximately 4000 miles a year. Must see to appricate. Only reason considering selling it is because we bought our daughter truck from her and won't need both of them."

"I bought my 1998 Chevy C1500 Cheyenne for 1200 bucks and it's the best money I've spent! Drives well and is extremely reliable. The only flaw is that it's not the most beautiful nor the most popular truck in the world, however it more than makes up for it. Best full-size I've ever driven."

"Second owner, and have never had a problem other than the normal wear and tear maintenance and "fix-its". Four wheel drive is easy to use and the truck will go anywhere you want it to go on and off road. It is not an economy car as the large engine uses lots of fuel, but it is a full size 90's truck. If you need reliability, versatility and ruggedness, you can't beat it."
