best all around

This is a great truck. I've had it for
almost for years, and the guy who had
it before me babied it. I've had a
little bit of trouble with the
radiator, and have replaced at least
one cv joint, but not too many more,
and a wiper bushing. The air
conditioner is excellent. I can push
upwards of 320 miles to about 17
gallons, and have used this truck for
work and play. The exterior is in
agreable condtion, the only blemishes
in the forms of dings and scratches.
The headliner has been sagging, but I
can live with that. I like it because
it's in between the compact s-10's and
the large f-150's.
I so abuse the cruise control! The cab
is huge! I can get in there and move
around a 4x12 guitar amp with ease.
The bench seat is great.
I would say a slightly smaller
engine... I mean, I can appreciate the
power, but 3.9 liters is a bit
excessive... maybe 3.2? Also, because
ther is so much space in the engine
compartment, it takes forever to get
the heat going, but it works out
well, 'cuz it doesn't overheat.
