Bought my first GM truck yestarday. Its a 1998 Chevrolet Silverado 1500 Ext Cab 4x4 with 5.7 engine. So far I am very pleased. I have always liked Ford. I had a truck with the 4.9 and the 5.0. Both of those engines are great engines but the triton engines scared me away from ever buying a ford truck made after 1996. Maybe if I ever get rich and don't mind paying someone else to change my spark plugs, I'll buy another.
