Hello! I am looking into buying my first vehicle, and like many other high school students my age, I don´t have a lot of knowledge with cars/trucks. I am pursuing a career on a full time ranch and looking to buy a used 3/4 ton truck. I am hoping to gain some knowledge from this forum about what I should avoid and what to look out for (pros and cons) in GM and Chevy. I have done a little bit of research and have found that many people like the GMC Sierra and the Chevy Silverado. I am hoping I can find something under 100,000 miles and under $10,000. Is there a year (or years) that stood out the best in performance and longevity? I understand that the GMC Sierra and Chevy Silverado are the same truck give or take a few cosmetic changes over the years. I am open to other makes/models of 3/4 ton trucks, any suggestions are more than welcome.
