    Check out my new truck

    Well I finally did it, broke down and bought a used Silverado I found for sale in a guys' front yard. It's a 1997 Z71 with 350 (5.7), every option except leather, and 66,000 miles. A cherry pick. I was able to get a great price from him and paid it off on the spot. yippee.

    Good find, moman! I've always liked these mid-late '90s GM trucks. I'm sure it'll serve you well in the years to come.

    Re: Check out my new truck

    They're nice trucks. Our friend Loubier has one. There's a big thing of taking him out into the woods and seeing how long it takes for him to get stuck. One of our friends has a Jeep Wrangler 4X4 with a tow-strap, so it's all good

    Congrats, I love that style. I miss my 98 2500, but I only got 13mpg with the 350, compaired to the 20mpg I get with my Cummins Ram. What kind of mileage do you get in your truck, what rear gears?

    Re: Check out my new truck

    Thanks for the comments guys. I was debating between a 2006 Z71 and this one, and decided to go used for 1/4 the cost. In the end it was a pretty easy decision though I really liked the new one.

    I haven't burned a full tank yet but the guy I bought it from said he got 400 miles to the tank which is 17-19 MPG mixed. Don't know which rear end it has, how can I find that out?

    It's a very strong truck and runs great. No mods planned - I'll get a kayak carrier and tonneau cover (soft) but that's it.

    Nice truck! I love the look of it, and in general the trucks and Tahoes of that time. My brother has a 96 Tahoe, that I love. Great looking truck man.
