Agreed (with the "blech"). Damn these things are ugly. $27,000 and
looks like shit. Yeah, makes me want to go right and sign up.
No disrespect, I realize we all like different things. I just keep
thinking how great Chevy trucks used to look and how disappointed I am
in what they're producing today. I do hope that they turn out to be
really good vehicles to fight off the Toyotas and Nissans.

Well the Toyota & Nissan trucks are pretty high on the ugly scale too.
Especially ugly were the Toyotas of a couple years ago with the
Buick-rip off grill. The Nissan with the integrated bumper/grill just
Jap trucks have a long way to go to even get close to American ones.
I would never buy a new truck even if I did have the money. Wait and get one
broken in and save a lot. My next truck will be a 8-10 year old 3/4 ton
chevy in good condition for a good price which I plan to start looking
around for next year. Its not considered a real truck until its at least 5

It's an oof-road suspension package. Apparently GM is extending it
across the pickup truck line, dunno if it'll make it to the
Trailblazers like it has to the Tahoe/Suburban. Didn't know it was
offered on the 2WD, funny how they don't make it 4WD only...
Comon, everyone lifts their 2WD truck and puts super swampers on them these
days, not like they will ever take them offroad.
Before I got my monte I was considering getting the Lifted 4 door S-10
model, the one that kinda looks like a baby avalanche, but the bed was too
short to be useful for when I would need a truck.

In 2001 when I was shopping the used truck prices were way too high. I did
not consider "bigger" was better. I wanted something reliable which would
haul me and my dirtbike. The A/C had to work. It had to go 70 MPH with the
A/C on. After several months the $3,000 rebate offered on 4 cyl 5 speed
Sonoma looked awfully darn good.
Got just about the cheapest Sonoma made that year. Long bed was
essentially the only upgrade. I'd wish for less wind noise around the
doors but otherwise it fills the task very well.
If it has carpeting on the floor then its an SUV, not a truck.
Hey, you can put a SBC in the back of my 86 S15 Jimmy 4x4!
The hardest part was moving it forward after lowering it off
the hoist and trying not to snap off the tailgate.
You can strap a 28' extension ladder to the roof.
It has enough rust so you can change the rear shocks without
a jack. :)
