Brandon5778 replied to L67's topic in 1999-2006 & 2007-2013 Chevrolet Silverado & GMC Sierra 1500That '89 has far fewer things that can go wrong with it than a new truck. Reliable and cheap to fix. Keeping a few cheap extra parts and a toolbag in the cab and you can get out of most break downs on the side of the road. But it sounds to me like you have already talked yourself into a new truck. I would get a new truck myself.
Brandon5778 replied to FixitNick's topic in Vehicle BuildsHi Nick I just wanted to let you know I've been following your videos since you started on this truck and they're great. Nice look with the 35s! The young one is going to make a great DIYer someday. I would have also roasted my old tires.
I can attest to this as I just got done replacing all of my brake lines with stainless steel on my 04. However they are still very reliable trucks. My dad has a 2000 with the 5.3 that's got 312k on her that's been beat to hell. It still runs perfect though and he drives it daily. The weak point is the 4l60 tranny. Get a 2500 with the 4l80 and don't worry about a transmission rebuild every 100k miles.

Hi, my brother and I are working on a truck that hasn't ran in 10 years. It was our Gramp's truck. He's gone now and it's up to us to work on it. 350 TBI. We have spark, but not getting fuel. Ignition is good because we started it once for just a second by spraying starter fluid down the intake. Otherwise just turns over. We have already drained and cleaned fuel tank, and decided to test the fuel pump on a battery. It was bad so we replaced it with a new one. All back together and no fuel pumping. So, I started checking for power everywhere. No power at the fuel pump plug whatsoever. Under the hood the fuel relay has a hot orange wire and the fuel pump fuse does have power when the key is turned. Any input is appreciated, not sure where to go from here.
Hi, my name's Brandon. I just turned 20. A month ago I bought a new-to-me 2004 Chevy 2500 HD regular cab truck. It has the 6.0 and 4.10 rear end and it tows my boat to the ramp like a dream. My brother and I are also working on getting an 88 Chevy pickup with a 350 TBI to run. Well I love turning a wrench and learning. I bought my boat in non running condition (a 1975 i/o with a Ford 302) and got her on the water and running perfectly. I don't really know much about newer trucks though so I'll be posting soon!
