    Post Sierra/Hilux/Silverado

    Hi Guys,

    Obviously I'm new here and a bit about my rides: my first ride was a Chevy S-10 which i drove for 10 months and then found my dream truck, a 1992 GMC Sierra which I bought in 1997. One year after I bought it, the original paint started peeling off the body on different spots like the hood, roof and bed rails, so I decided to over paint my pickup completely. I will post the pictures of this job later.

    After 10 years driving this GMC Sierra, I decided to sell it and I bought a 2008 Toyota Hilux. Till today I still have the Toyota Hilux but 2 months ago I decided to buy a light-damaged 2008 Chevy Silverado and that's the reason why I'm on this forum.

    For those curious/interested to see the Toyota Hilux, I will post some pictures of the trucking showing you guys how I upgraded it.

    Anyway, enough for now.

    Hilux- you aren't in the USA right?
    Here the Hilux is closest to the Toyota Tacoma.
    I think it is actually closer to the earlier small Toyota pickups-the Tacoma might be a big bigger than the Hilux, right?Not really a small pickup anymore- more like midsized.
    I had a series 1976,1986,1994,1998 of small 4 cyl toyota pickups- all but one were manual transmissions.
    They were great little trucks- good city mpg and pretty versatile.
    Now I have a used Suburban-216,000 miles(300,000 km) -it has been a pleasant surprise considering the age/miles and size and the rep GM usually has with foreign car buyers. Great vehicle- very reliable- good mpg.
    Pictures of your Toyota??
