Showing 3 Door Workmaster GemTop Shell on 8 Foot Bed

"I bought it new but I am 71 years old, retired, and no longer have much use for it, so I am offering it for sale. The ladder rack on the Workmaster Gemtop shell is rated at 600 pounds and can carry an extension ladder and/or moderate amounts of lumber and pipe up to 20 feet long. It has been garaged most of it's life and has never been in a serious accident. It is slightly dented and scratched where shopping carts ran into it in parking lots, but otherwise the body is excellent. It has never been in freezing weather or experienced road salt, so there is no body rust. Five spare tires on steel rims included if you want them. Includes heavy rubber bed mat. Truck and shell are white."

"Plenty of power for towing. For a full sized truck it is decent on gas about 18.5 mpg around town and highway mixed driving. Easy to see out of. Cab is comfortable and plenty of room for 4."

High above Pacific Coast Higway, Deer Creek Rd, 200K

"...Like a Rock! I have owned the vehicle since it was new, had a great experience from the dealership in Belen, NM. It still runs like new, acceleration, shifting, handling, electrical system, buttons, switches, almost everything, but a couple of bulbs in the radio buttons, all still works. The only issue to me is cosmetic, it has shown its patina, due to outdoor sunny climates. Paint job is all it needs, with only a hand full of door dings and scratches, luckily no body repair. The 4x4 is perfect as well, and I have used it on numerous occasions, it climbs, handles in snow, and the auto 4x4 shifts flawlessly in patchy conditions. All GM serviced. Minor repairs I do, brakes, belts, hoses, water pump, pulleys...etc. Had original brakes until 150k front, and 100k rear. So to me I would sum that up, maintenance free. It currently need shocks, brakes, the catalytic converter. The only minor technical small issue as of late is ABS, changing the sensors will cure that when I am working on the brakes. Yes this truck can be worked on by yourself for general maintenance, the internet has all the tutorials on youtube. So in summary I would rate this vehicle a great value, maintenance free, great driving, full size pick up truck. If you own one you know. If you are looking to buy one get it, it will last you a long time as long as you take care of it. Think of the classics out there, and one day this generation of truck will be a classic one day as well. I'm hoping to hold on to mine, but I could take offers."

Pros: "Decent MPG, good power, etc..."

Cons: "Inital disc brakes were junk. Made dealer replace"

"I have had this truck for 14 years. She has never let me down in mud, snow, rain, etc... I do historical reenactments, and frequently pull a 4000# trailer with about 500# in the bed. Cadillac type ride, smooth handling, all around great. Only problem was the disc brakes on 2000-2002 were "sandwich" type. Good metal on the outside of junk pot metal. Made dealership replace them when pot metal rusted and hunks of disc fell off!"
