I drove this truck for 8 yrs before I
broke down and bought the turbo upgrade
from Banks. Wish I'd done it sooner. So
far I have had no problems with this
truck except that it was a bit
underpowered hauling my 7000+ lb trailer
on hills. I have a the 5 speed manual
and would not recommend the auto tranny.
Excellent mileage. 23mpg empty; 14-17
mpg towing depending on conditions and
speed. Very comfortable on long hauls.
More power. I shouldn't have to take a
new truck to the local diesel guy to
install a $2k upgrade so I can make it
up hills faster than 47mph!
