Review
After the first few thousand miles replaced the #1 spark plug every month or so(cracked). Strange clunking sound in steering. At 10000 replaced the front brakes, then again every 10-16000 miles. At 18000 replaced rear shocks. At 37000, just out of warranty, Transmission rebuilt for the first time. At 44000, rear rebuilt. At 46000, lower and upper ball joints and outer tie rods replaced. Odds and ends replaced until 96000 where the transmission was rebuilt a second time, transfer case, back-up light switch and have new seals put in steering box. I'm at 166000 now, upper ball joints and transfer case needs to be rebuilt again. One good thing, truck still runs.
Favorite Features
Nice stereo! Wish it played burned cd's without popping it in and out until the cd player read the cd.
Suggested Improvements
Recalls on transmissions, rears & power steering boxes. Strange clunking sound in steering to be recalled as well. Better brake equipment to handle the size of the truck.
