    i think those years had injector problems. the injector bodies were known to crack and fill the cranckase with fuel. gm extended the wrranty on the ones affected but not sure if it still woud be covered. also the transfer cases like to rub through, other than that they seem like solid trucks from what ive heard.

    Chances are, with that kind of mileage, I wouldn't worry about the normal problems arrising unless they have already been fixed...Can you give us more info on the truck as well as price? I've always liked the 01-02 front ends on the silverado's...

    I have a 2002 cc sb 4x4 w auto. It gets awesome fuel mileage. and an incredible amount of power. An uncle had one with the 5 speed, he was pulling down 20% better fuel mileage than me. I had the injectors replaced on mine under warranty. Actually very few problems with it. Had a rattle and 'thunk' in the steering, it needed to be disassembled and lubed and they installed a grease fitting at the same time. The Allison had a transmission module fail, it was missing a couple gears, my memory fails me with regard to that, it was a long time ago.
