Re: Full size trucks - which is better?

My dad has a 93' k2500 sclb with 291k on it. Has the 350 and 4speed+granny. 4wd also. Truck is awesome. Only rust is the rockers and a little on the fenders. Not bad for a plow truck I guess. Truck is tired and COULD use a new motor, but it doesn't burn/leak anything. I get about 10 mpg city and 12-13 highway if i stay at or below 70. Not the best, I know, but I do like the truck lol. Truck can move any amount of snow that I want without missing a beat. I've towed things with it without a problem. I say go with a Chevy, but I guess that's just cause I'm a fan girl.

1984 Chevy s10.
1995 Chevy s10: Hopefully will be sold soon!

If I lived out in the county I would probably average somewhere near 15mpg. I live in the middle of town and the vast majority of my trips are 2-3 miles. When I was housesitting for my cousin in Decemeber(11 miles to town), I got about 15mpg. The sweet spot on mine is 50-55mph, it will get 20-22mpg, 3.55 gear and automatic.

Re: Full size trucks - which is better?

I'm a Chevy fan so I'm gonna say go Chevy, but the MPG's are less then desirable, my 03 z71 got 12-14 at best on the highway. my 05 lifted with 35's and 3.42 gearing got 12mpg on the highway and my 04 duramax CCSB 6" lift and 37's gets 17-20mpg when I run the tune, stock is like 12mpg. and my 6.0 powerstroke ford CCSB got 18mpg highway

Get a 2wd extended cab with a 5.3 auto and you will be very happy with it all around. they are great motors I only had one problem with mine, the knock sensors which was a relatively easy fix.

2004.5 LLY CCSB Duramax 4x4 6" lift, 37" Toyo M/T's
1986 Mazda RX7 CHEVY POWERED!! 355 SBC
1999 Silverado Ext cab, lowered, 388 stroker project

Re: Full size trucks - which is better?

Ive owned every make. And hands down nothing has compared to my 2005 f150. It tows my show trucks like nothing is behind it, with good mileage. With my s10 on a trailer i drove 4hrs to a show and still had more than a 1/4 tank when i got there. Around town mileage is ok, on the hwy ill get between 650-700km/tank (130L). It starts without hesitation in -45C and i beat the piss out of it! My dodge ram didnt last 3 years before it spun a bearing, the silverado leaked tranny fluid after 50k.... I refuse to own an import fullsize so i cant comment on them. I recommend ford as a tow pig/winter rig, but for cruisin shes not so nice.

Re: Full size trucks - which is better?

My mom had a 2001 sierra, v6, rcsb. She drove it as her work truck (hot shot). When she finally retired it, it had 479,000km on the clock. It didnt leak or burn anything, the thing still ran and looked new. Its all in the preventative maintenance!
