    I've been waiting to hear scottys opinion on the gmt400 series trucks. They're personally my favorite model Chevrolet truck. I know Chevy gets a lot of hate, but these trucks were solid.

                Those are the most unreliable trucks on the planet earth. The ones before and after we’re pretty reliable though

                  Sorry owner, but this not "top of the line" or "fully loaded" if it were, it'd have bucket seats and leather.

                        That's a sharp truck and the wheels prove that you can take the rally wheels and put them on pretty much any generation Chevy truck prior to 1999 and they'll look good.

                                    I have a 1996 3500 247,000 miles, with no signs of any quit, 95% is all original parts, now shut up because all the yuppies might turn this into a trend, just buy a Colorado or a $50k Tacoma if you really want to be cool buy a RAM

                                      Big problem with these trucks is Electrical Issues. One of their biggest flaws. Had a 1993 Chevy single cab step side. Loved it but man so many electrical issues every few months or so.

                                              I like your videos Scotty, but I am a GM fan and I don't agree with everything you say about GM cars. Myself and many people I know have put over 300,000 thousand miles on their 3800 motors, and I also just turned 260,000 on my 3800 supercharged motor. These are the best motors I ever had and very reliable. I also use lubegard products for my motors and transmissions. They make great products and you can feel a difference ! Maybe you can do a video on lubegard products, I would like to know your opinion. Thanks !

                                                My 92 GMC jimmy SLS ( Sport) has great interior all original. No burns or rips . Very plush and familiar to me. It has a full frame on body structure with a integrated safety or crash cage surrounding the passenger compartment. Very solid vehicle. It surprised me when I crossed the scales with passengers at nearly 6,000 lbs . And luggage. Still runs great 160,000 original miles. Original running gear and paint . ( it needs a painting) . 22 mpg fully leaded with cruise set above 80 mph. 32 gallon tank . Rides smoothly and doesn’t rattle like most wagons do. The sport trim is a BLackout model. Good made in USA steel !

I’m at 265k miles, still has the original trans, u-joints, rear end, fuel pump, etc. Lately been driving the wheels off it at 5k miles a month for work. Besides poor fuel mileage, they hold up very well.

I also have the window sticker and a road atlas and travel guide from 1997 I'm guessing I'm the 2nd or 3rd owner not counting the lot since he only had it for a week untill I bought it

Cab. for $5,200.00 w/ like 105k miles in like 2008 and it has never given me many issues except alternator replaced, ac issue (accumulator replaced), and an ignition switch. Engine and tranny have been solid and it's never left me stranded except when the alternator was replaced which wasn't charging the battery. Interior was pretty good except for notorious ripped leather in driver's side seat but for $5200.00 what do you want? It's got like 182k on it and it runs solid

Chevy is still the best doesn’t break down like dodge and doesn’t rust like a ford, and to any of you driving Toyota trucks those don’t count and you should be ashamed of yourself as an American
