1989 GMC Sierra SL 2500 - 2WD

Up for sale is my trusted GMC Sierra pickup truck.  NO RESERVE.  I bought the truck as a work/beater truck for household/yard jobs but it turns out I seldom drive it so here it is for sale.  The previous owner had this truck in a fleet as evidenced by the dirt embedded into the interior despite my best efforts to remove it.  The mileage is uknown (which is why the listing showns 999,999).  The odometer has never turned since I purchased the truck in 2010. The engine runs strong and has been trouble free since I purchased it.   If you are looking for a basic and inexpensive work truck that you don't need to worry about putting to work and scraping it up, this one fits the bill!

 

Features:

5.7L V8

2WD - Two Wheel Drive

3 speed automatic

8 foot box

This truck is relatively unique in that it has very few options. It is not equipped with a/c - hence the blank out plates on the vents on the dash.  Instead the truck has pull-stops to open fresh-air vents below the dash. 

Radio with cassette player (non-functioning - I don't know why)

bedliner

 

The Good:

Runs great

Starts the first time, every time

Solid exhaust system (see photos)

Tires still have a lot of tread depth on them

 

The Bad:

The mileage of the truck is unknown.  It reads a bit over 112,000 miles, but it was reading this when I bought the truck in the summer of 2010 and the reading has never changed. 

Transmission leaks a little bit of fluid - I assume it needs a new gasket but I have never attempted to replace/repair it. 

Rust (see photos)

Passenger seat-belt doesn't tension properly (latches but is not fully taught)

Radio and cassette player do not work (turns on, but no sound)

Dome light doesn't work - may just need a new bulb

Tears in the seat cushion

Fading amateur paint job

Spare tire and jack are both missing

Check engine light comes on occasionally, but doesn't stay on and doesn't seem to run any differently when the light comes on.

 

Please contact me if you are interested in coming to check the truck out.  The truck is no longer currently registered as I just transferred plates to another vehicle so test drives will have to be limited to the side-streets in my neighborhood. 

 

Here is the not-so-fine print: 

Vehicle is sold 'AS IS' with no warranty. 

Vehicle must be picked up within 14 days of end of auction. 

$100 deposit required within 48 hours of close of auction. 

Any bidders with a feedback rating of less than 5 will be cancelled.

2014 GMC Sierra Regular Cab revealed

Thu, 16 May 2013 14:14:00 EST

Despite initially launching in just the Crew Cab configuration, the lineup of 2014 GMC Sierra and 2014 Chevrolet Silverado trucks will eventually grow to include three cab sizes and three bed lengths. Oddly enough, our first look at the Regular Cab bodystyle has arrived in a General Motors press release discussing the aerodynamics of the new truck, with an image showing a Sierra Regular Cab testing in the wind tunnel. GMC's website says that Regular Cab and Double Cab models will be available by summer.
While it really didn't take too much imagination to figure out what the two-door version would look like, this Regular Cab Z71 looks pretty sharp with its standard-length (6.5-feet) bed - a longer bed will also be offered. In regards to the aero tuning of the 2014 Sierra, these images show just how far GM has gone in maximizing the truck's fuel efficiency and reducing its noise, vibration and harshness (NVH) levels. Interestingly, the press release shows visual evidence that keeping the tailgate up is best for aero - there's always been some Mythbusters-level contention about such things -but GM also says that adding tonneau covers (preferably soft) and running boards can also help improve the overall aerodynamics. Scroll down for all of this aero info in the official press release.

GM recalls full-size truck, SUVs and vans over faulty shifter mechanism

Mon, 07 Jan 2013 08:28:00 EST

Twelve different General Motors vehicles from the 2013 model year, up to 54,686 units in total, are being recalled over two potential issues with their steering columns. The models in question, all full-size trucks, SUVs or vans, are the: Cadillac Escalade, Escalade ESV, Escalade EXT, Chevrolet Avalanche, Express, Silverado, Suburban, Tahoe, and GMC Savana, Sierra, Yukon and Yukon XL.
The affected vehicles were built with a fractured parking lock cable or "a malformed steering column lock actuator gear in the lock module assembly." As a consequence, they could shift out of park without the brake pedal being applied or with the key removed or in the off position.
A bulletin from the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration indicates that the recall should begin on January 17. GM will notify owners, at which time they can take their vehicles to their dealers for repair free of charge. Have a look at the bulletin below for more information.

PickupTrucks.com's latest test results in a familiar winner [w/video]

Wed, 19 Jun 2013 16:58:00 EST

PickupTrucks.com has gone and thrown the latest batch of half-ton pickups into a cage match to see who would come out on top. The site put the 2014 Chevrolet Silverado 1500, GMC Sierra 1500, 2013 Ford F-150, Ram 1500, Toyota Tundra and Nissan Titan through a battery of tests. Those included 0-60 miles per hour acceleration, 60-0 mph deceleration, fuel economy, a hill climb, and payload and towing. They even threw the rigs on an autocross course to evaluate overall handling. Each truck was given points based on how it scored in each evaluation.
Who came out on top? Somewhat surprisingly, the 2013 Ford F-150 walked away with the gold, though fewer than 50 points separated first and fourth place. Head over to PickupTrucks.com to read the full evaluation and the final results. You may be shocked to see exactly where some of the segment's newest additions placed. You can also watch a video on the test below.
