Great performing truck. Surprisingly quiet when the windows are closed. However, the seat in the SLT is terrible. I am almost 6 feet tall. With the seat in the "right" position for driving, my left foot had nothing to rest on. The flow of blood in my leg would be constricted because the seat compresses down to a hard surface. I remedied this by putting a small sandbag of river stones on the floor near the firewall. Ah comfort.
Also, as you exit the seat, and slither down out of this high rig, your left pants seat will get caught on the piece of hard plastic around the seat belt. Very uncomfortable. Never had such experiences in my GMC trucks. Sometimes price and comfort go hand-in-hand. I plan to solve this one with a seat cover that has a thick supple leather pad between me and the offending plastic. Also running boards so I don't have to slither.

The truck is everything that I wanted in a truck. It was purchased for 5,000 under bank value also. Only negative is the gas mileage. 9-10 city and 14-15 highway. But I did not get this vehicle because of the awesome gas mileage, I got it because it is what I wanted.
A great truck! It has a very agressive, sporty look and has most if not all of the standard features I was looking for. It's powerful, fast, and very smooth on the road. The only negatives I can think of are the gas mileage (but I knew that going in) and the lack of standard side boards or steps. It's hard for shorter people to get in and out of the truck.
