We’ve said it before, but it bears repeating; the GS handles in ways a two-story building was never meant to.

Taking collections for Faye Butler Training please spare some change.

Remember red and yellow make orange.so to think orange is better means you have to use two steps to get there.

Great looking truck. Has AC and hydroboost brakes. Looks like a great daily driver.

the hydro boost is good if using a high lift cam, but this is a stoke motor, PM me if really interested. AC doesn't work.

These are both owned by the same guy here in MN, I've seen them at a couple snowmobile events and they both run/drive and look pretty original.

I've had my Duramax for over 9 years now, bought new in Feb 2003. Just put a new set of wheels on it, shined her up and took a couple of pictures. I love this truck, and at 140,000 miles I'm not even starting to get tired of it. I hope it lasts nine more years.

Any issues with transfer case or injectors?

A buddy of mine has one of the about the same vintage & he's had problems with both of these.

Just wondering. Nice ride, by the way.

Yes. Injectors took a shit at about 50K miles. Chevy replaced them and warranted them for 200,000 miles or (X) years which I think I've surpassed. I keep fuel additive in there to avoid problems with today's low sulphur fuel as it's a very expensive job.

Transfer case has been fine.

Only other problems have been the retracting mirrors, they have always been a problem, had both motors replaced and still not right. When I extend or retract them which is not often, I have to have someone push or pull while I'm on the button. I see they only had those mirrors for about one year.

Speedometer died around 100K. The servo motor is chintzy in them. Sent it off and got a better one put in for about 350 bucks.

Haven't really had to spend any other money on this that I can think of right now.

Just FYI for anyone else having this (very common) issue. I found a guy on ebay who replaced all the servo motors and upgraded all the bulbs to LED in my cluster for less than $100 including shipping. You pull the cluster out, ship it to him, and he ships it back all fixed up. It was gone about a week, and the trucks drives just fine without the cluster.

Thanks, and like I say, I was just wondering.

Yes, injector replacement is stunningly expensive from what I hear.
