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.
