GM Truck Club - History and Site Rules
In 2004, under the shadow of the GM assembly plant in Arlington, Texas, GMTruckClub.com was born.
With few options online for GM and Chevy enthusiasts, a Chevy Trailblazer forum was launched first, then sites for the Chevy Suburban, Chevy Tahoe and Chevy Silverado. More sites were added until a network was established that covered GM Trucks, SUVs, Vans and Crossovers. In 2005 this network was combined together to form the current GMTruckClub.com.
Today, with 20 million pageviews per year, we are one of the largest GM and Chevy spefic sites on the web. We owe it all to the everyday enthusiast that has helped this site thrive.
Our Goal and Promise to you: We strive to be a dynamic user-to-user Chevy Truck forum and enthusiast community that comes together to share knowledge to help you get the most out of your GM vehicles. This comes to life in the forum discussions and we strike to maintain respect for other members, from the experienced mechanic to the newbie looking for answers.
If you want to get more out of your GM Truck, SUV, Van or Crossover, then sign-up! Get involved - ask questions, answer questions, post photos and show your stuff!
