Totally in love with this truck, though it needs a little tlc I really am enjoying the time and effort I am putting into this truck. I would of never wanted a better first time truck to learn all my mechanics on. She is totally built to last and take me any where I want to go. I have had to do some routine fixing like brakes and muffler, there was a little bit of a problem with the transmission leaking but it was just a minor fall back. The body on her was immaculate and the interior is beautiful. I have taken out the middle console and am in the midst of changing the bucket seats. I am going to eventually put a bit of a lift on her but just so that 4x4 is a little bit more of an ease.
Her shape and overall get up and go. She may be a bit smaller then the trucks on the market now but is she ever a dream on gas.
The interior, while great for the era is a little bit out-dated, i.e. cup holders and compartments. Other then that she fits like a dream.
I have had this truck for 11 years,
135000 miles. Tune up @ 100k, brakes
replace x1, Original alternator and
exhaust. It is the most reliable,
inexpensive to maintain, well built
auto I have ever owned.
Minimal Repairs, 2.8 V-6, Great Gas
Milage, Sliding rear window, Always
Poor inside door latch, Bad A/C,
Brittle inside plastic pieces, but
after 11 years, what do you expect?
This is an extremly nice truck, it has
more then enough power to tow a heavy
load and accerate like you wouldn't
believe with the 4.3L. Its a very
reliable truck and will do anything you
ask it. Extremly reliable, we've had
this truck for about 9 years and still
runs like its brand new. Take care of
this truck and it will take care of you
4.3L (thats a lot of power) Durability
and Reliability. Goes anywhere, and
does anything. hardly ever have to
replace any parts. The styling is
pretty nice too, its a very slick truck
