Bought this great SUV new, before the
term was around. Solid, great
manuverability, and stable on and off
road. Currently has 131,000 miles.
Have replaced typical wear-out parts
along the way, nothing serious.
Original powertrain and engine, they
work perfect. Replaced A/C compressor
and radiator in 2000. I've driven this
brute over steep, mountain roads with
rocks and boulders, thru deep mud, and
over snow/ice covered roads, and have
never been disappointed. I will never
sell this vehicle.
4x4 and locking dif are a great
combo. Relatively tight turning and
stable stance make it great for on/off
road manuverability. Great looking
vehicle, everything is proportional. A
true SUV that still hums comfortably
at 80 mph.
The anti-lock brakes never impressed
me. The spare tire placement
decreases cargo room.
