ReviewI bought this truck about 8 months ago and I have hauled rocks, dirt, gravel, all of my stuff from a move, 2 boats, and all the while in the worst snow, ice, and whatever God could throw at you, and it performed like a beauty with 22 mpg at 132,000 miles. Paid $7k for the truck and I have used the 4x4 push button more times than you could shake a stick at. it has a litte cubby behind the rear seat for whatever tools you may need, a sliding rear window, can tow 5200lbs out of an awesome 4.3 6cyl.compared to the Dakota's 3400lbs max for their v6 (wimpy). Do not buy if you need a finesse city truck. I have had no issues yet with the truck. But at 132K what can I say? The thing is "like a rock".
Best FeaturesThis truck is a meaty truck. I thought that I would have more issues with such a small bed, but I have yet to encounter a time when I needed more bed space. Love push button, all power options, oversized bucket seats, towing power, and pulling power.
Worst FeaturesI would recomend using synthetic oil after 100k. Helps curb burnt oil, particularly if one wants to tow regularly. Keep tires inflated, will help mileage. K&N air filter is also great for towing
