"Awesome truck i got mine with 247000 miles on it now has 259000 my first truck i love it and wouldnt trade it for anything this truck will go anywhere STOCK i love this truck very very very well built truck"
"This is the 1997 GMC Sierra Extra cab Z-71 4x4 with the 5.7L Engine. Currently this truck has 170K on her. I have replaced the Transmission and the front suspension components, IE: Ball Joints, Tie Rods, Shocks! I also replaced the Fuel Pump. I have tried for years to beat the doors off this truck off roading and hunting, with no success! She has taken everything and always powered home. Stay away from Rancho Shocks unless you want a horrible ride on city streets, their great shocks off road! cosmetically, the paint does not hold up, but its a truck! The door handles interior and exterior will give up eventually but its an easy fix. I cant say enough about this truck! I dont want to get a new one, but she's about ready for retirement! Drive it till the wheels fall off!"
"99 Sierra 1500 extd cab
Brake lines rusted away and suspension is rusting away. Advised not to use for hauling which renders the vehicle useless.
Prevailing thought was vehicle has been parked on gravel and grass which caused the problem?
Otherwise, the truck ran well and served its purpose"
