Purchased truck from family member, excellent condition at 40k miles. Has the infamous clunk in steering and clunk in transmission. But the ride quality, comfort and awesome 4wd more than makes up for annoying clunks. Z71 package really helped when I ran over a log in the road, the Z71 skid plates protected my trans and oil pan. The log only damaged exhaust ypipe,rear shock and both skid plates. Not bad considering the damage could have been worse without the Z71 package skid plates. No domestic truck is perfect but neither are humans! So in this case the good qualities definitely out weigh the bad. Highly recommended.
Bose system is clear and sweet, comfy interior, nice exhaust note, great mpgs for full size 4wd v8 (16.5- 17mpgavg) good family vehicle for trips even better for duck hunting and hauling boat.
cold air induction, flowmaster exhaust, find solution to clunks.
