The first question is, how much are they asking for it? With a used truck with this amount of miles on it, I would be very cautious. Make sure you check everything, and I mean EVERYTHING out. Another question is, are you going to utilize the truck as a daily driver, or for weekend off roading fun?

I had a 1995 Z-71 and it was a fantastic truck. I sold it when had about 110K miles and it was still running strong. The 350ci is an all around excellent engine, but after 200K they start to have problems, as with most American made V-8's. Remember, this is not a Mazda or Toyota, it's not going to last forever.

Just take your time before you make any final decisions. Test drive it look the engine over very well. If you're not mechanically inclined, get a friend that is to look it over. In addition, you can take it to one of your local shops and have one of the experts take a look at.

The most important aspect of buying used vehicles, especially one with this many miles, is to not bite off more than you can chew. What I mean is,everything may appear to be in good working order, but then things start to break down and you put in more money to keep it running than you bought it for. Be very smart and take your time! I wish ya the best of luck!

You get what you pay for. HOWEVER... I would much rather buy a Chevy 350/auto with that many miles on it over a Ford or Dodge. See if the seller has any type of maint. records for it. How much is he asking?

I absolutely agree!! Engines have come along way throughout the years, but the 5.7L 350ci in the mid 90's will out last any Ford or Dodge in the same era.
