I got this truck for a steal! It was in horrible condition upon purchase, been in multiple accidents, and was badly beat on. But still ran! Parts are cheap and is easy to repair. Very dependable truck! The LE with the 318 is a powerful work horse. It can tow twice it's weight, no problem. It handles great, on and off the road. Fun to drive and quick. My truck has become my addiction. I love customizing this truck. Flowmasters 40 series sound fantastic, by the way.
Solid, dependable. Lots of torque. Easy to drive. I recommend this truck.
Some upgrade kits might not be easily available, (such as a 3 inch body lift kit) and may require a little 'MacGyver'ing,
