I actually bought the truck in mid 99.
I have taken good care of the truck and
it has taken great care of me. When I
bought it, it had 88800 miles now it
has 183200, with almost no problems. I
replaced the water pump, the upper
radiator hose twice( a 10 minute job)
and just normal maintence. I never
replaced the clutch, I dont think it is
original, but it might be. It runs so
nice still. It doenst burn or leak a
drip of oil. I got it when I was 17, Im
now almost 22. It starts up just the
same way as the first day I drove it.
It is not really fast, but thats ok. It
has decent torque. I even delivered
pizzas with it for a long time, and it
was always great.
It still looks great.
The bucks are as comfortable as a lazy
boy. I think mine is more comfortable
than the newer trucks.
My favorite feature is cruise controll
even though is is a stick shift!
My window knobs fell off.
Visibility directly behind the driver
is impaired when backing up.
I have seen 2 or 3 other s-10s that
have dents in the EXACT SAME SPOT from
the exact same looking thing-a post
