I bought this truck brand new in 98. I am sure the newer ones are better. Granted, this truck has a lot of miles on it now, but the realibility was suspect from new. Had a lot of problems with spark knock. Dealer messed with the computer, throttle body, intake, spark plugs, wires, higher octane gas and still no fix. Computer would fix it for 1k miles or so then it would knock again. Rear main leaked since about 60k miles. Transmission replaced at 70k. Bad bad brakes. Right front wheel bearing two times. Sway bar two times. Steering box. Stereo replaced under warranty.Bad paint. List goes on. I still have the truck, but only drive it now to haul trash. Buy a Chevy.
Ride comfort. Middle console. Stereo.
Better brakes, more power, better front end, transmision.
