This truck, if taken care of, is one of the most reliable vehicles that I have ever encountered. My dad has owned it since 97 and I just bought it from him. The only thing that he has ever replaced on it was the starter motor after it kept sticking. Other than that, it has been a strong runner forever. It has the bedspace, the interior comfort, and the tough looks that anyone could desire.
The middle console that can be used as an armrest is the best thing ever. It runs smooth and keeps on cruising.
Dual exhaust, I have Ravin, makes this truck sound so much tougher. A performance transmission would be a nice touch.
