This truck is the honest to goodness daily driver. I have an '06 z71 4x4 automatic with factory locker rear diff. Replaced stock tires with 30x9.5x15 Wrangler silent armor tires. Off road trail fun is unbelievable. Truck in first gear engine idle will climb any hill muddy, rocky, or treachous breakover angle scenarios. Idle gives you enough power to do virtually anything reasonably so just keep on the brakes :) On street this truck is nimble and comfortable. Very svelte ride on or off road. No problems with hauling 1 ton trailer, its unnoticeable until 3 or 4 gear.
On road personality. Quiet engine even when hammered. Accelerates comparably to '95 4.3L vortec s-10 4wd Offroad ability with factory rear locker excellent. Very spacious overall
Truck interior in style overall; pretty bland. Stock tires on this truck are a safety hazard. Using Goodyear wrangler Silent armor tires, the truck is a rocket with them
