This is a outstanding truck. I bought this in 99, and it has not had any bad problems. Around 133,xxx miles my front U-Joint went out. But i have not had any other problems. I would recommend this truck for a first vehicle if you have kids getting ready to drive. Its Something they can have fun with, beat up, and still run hard.
The 2 gen designs all around where pretty to me. Love the exterior, and the interior.
