7 Years of Great Service

ReviewDuring the 7 years I've owned the truck, I never had a major equipment failure. The only cons were the tires (Continental General Ameri 500) wore out and cracked @ 24,000 miles. The front brake pads were toast at 27,000 miles, which inturn ate my front rotors. The rear shoes show little sign of wear at 45,000 miles. The body looks as good as the day I bought it, thanks to Zimoyl wax, but New England winters are hard on Detroit iron and I am trading it before cancer sets in (which is always terminal from the copious amounts of salt used on our highways). And yes, I am buying the same truck in a 2004 model.
Best FeaturesPower: The truck has a manual 5-spd and in low range you can't stall it no matter what you do. I've pulled huge rolling loads up steep dirt hills effortlessly.
Worst FeaturesThe locking differential is great, but it needs traction bars to stop spring windup and wheel hop.
