Hey guys can I get some opinions on this chevy?
The chevy Silverado
defintly has luxuries on it!
Are you using this for work ? snowplowing?
Back Rack always makes a truck look sharp and tough(functional too)
sexy truck, my dad has almost the exact truck, except his is a crew cab LT package 1500hd.... i borrow his sometimes when i'm out cruisin the streets and i love it.... its a gotta lot of torque, have had it up to 115mph.... speedo says 120mph....
i've also used it to tow my boat while out fishin w/my buds, great truck... plenty of power for both pulling and get up & go power
Hey guys thanks for the reviews, keep them comin...Yes i will be using it for plowing, yeah i know it can void the warrienty, also will be used for the lawn mowing side of the buss too...
If you are doing commerial plowing....You really need to be in a 2500, also what gears does that 1500 have, I would have atleast 3:73 if not 4:10's
a 1500hd (heavy duty), is a dressed down 2500
Im not gonna be doing parking lots just mainly people on my street and then if things pick up I would purchase an older 2500...Im not sure what gears are in it i think 4:10
Great looking truck thats for sure...I had a 99 Ext.cab and just traded it in today on a new truck.Mine was o.k. for plowing for a 1/2 ton but when you get in the wet heavy stuff a 3/4 or 1 ton is better.But it is a great looking truck that will probably do the job for you.
if your only going to be plowing a few drives, and not for the county or be doing any high volume w/the plow, then a 1500 is great... its better mpg... but its wise to plan ahead....
but i think u got a good idea, if things do get going (which i hope they do for you) then just buy an bigger older model truck destinated for plowing....
