This truck can fly off the line (for a truck) and haul anything you throw at it. The ride is smooth, aslong as you dont change the suspension. If you add a Power Chip it boost the power along with alittle more gas mileage. Along with the right kinda of tires, the 4x4 will get you out of most problems. The protection the engine and electrical parts have from water and mud is great. I went through 4ft of water(factory height) without any problems afterward, except alittle water in the cab...no biggy. Careful with the CD player tho, if a cd is in when you start up, it may not play, youll have to take it out then reinsert.
Smooth Ride, Pulling power(even without the chip). Rear seating, alot more room than Fords or Dodges CrewCabs, even with the front seats all the way back. Im 6'6 and had plenty of room.
Front end, the 01 models had a better looking front end. Take away the warning bell when the door is open, I hate that thing.
