S10 Guys

I have always had standard cab Chevys or 1 Ford.Wanted to finally get an extended cab truck.Also a truck with under 100,000 mi.Tough to find.I only put about 3,000/year on my truck.
Well here is what I found.A 2002 Chevy S10 LS extended cab,4.3 V6, 4x4 with 40,000 mi.
How do you guys that have them like em?

The answers to all of life's questions are found in the Bible!

Re: S10 Guys

Chevy S10 are good trucks..A little tight to work on but very reliable...

Re: S10 Guys

I now have 240,000 miles on mine and it doesn't use a drop of oil. The frame and body is as solid as the day I bought it, just a tiny surface rust on one of the rocker panels. It's a 99 and has never been garage kept. The 4.3 is a great motor, it's a v8 with two cylinders removed, so the bottom end is bullet proof.
Like yourself I always had full sized Chevy and bought this just to be a time being truck,but the thing won't quit, and I've really taken to it.You won't be disappointed.

It's breeding,training...and something unknown.

Happy with my 98 GMC Sonoma. Keeps on going. Little over 177,000 miles on it now. Don't think you will be disappointed with a purchase of an S10.

Re: S10 Guys

It`s funny you post this. I was thinking of one of these myself or Ford Ranger. I don`t like the newer trucks at all. The only S-10`s I didn`t like is the few years they put that funky rear bumper on them.

Re: S10 Guys

I love s10's....have 3 of them. My parts truck has 300,000 miles on it. It is hard to find low mile s10's anymore. I am a big guy 6' 300 pounds.....and fit with no problem...lol. I have 1 extended cab s10....great for hauling gear and grandkids. If you don't want it and the price is right I will take it. Good gas mileage also. And with the price of gas my pals don't laugh at my "little" truck anymore.

Re: S10 Guys

I'veowned two Jimmy's.They were good vehicles but both of mine ate ball joints and front hub assemblies on a regular basis.I'm hard on my trucks though.The 4.3 is a good engine but I wouldn't say the gas mileage was good.Personally I'd never own a small truck ever again.The full size 1/2 tons have more room,are more comfortable,have way more power and don't get any worse of gas mileage.That's just me.If you get a good deal on it,it would be a good vehicle.

Re: S10 Guys

All the s10 trucks are hard on front end parts so when you buy these parts get the lifetime warranty ones or AC Delco brand ones which are the most expensive but last a few years..If you buy your parts at Autozone or Advance auto then get the lifetime warranty and KEEP your receipt..NAPA also sells parts that last quite awhile..
