4x4 great drove truck down a river. take to mud bogs. dunes hill climbs drags. ROOMIE hunting equipment and wife and dog all fit dont evan have to move the speaker box. POWER pulls boat great. LOOKS vary aggressive. DURABILITY cant kill it can kill the rear tires and the turf your on
the body rusts bad. steering box and trans could be build stronger. but over all i bought the truck for 2200 and am 2nd owner and no major maint and i have 90k on it just maintain you stuff shop around before purchase the rusted out one with the same mileage may be better then the shinny one
