Cummins H.O. engine with manual
tranny: Bought one and with only 174
miles on the odometer, it blew-up. The
body is made with the thinest sheet
metal I've ever seen. The seats are
like sitting on stone. The transission
is weak and notchy. The one they
replaced the blown-up truck with is
running better but can be quite loud at
times, reminiscent of the old cummins.
The patriot blue paint job and the body
style is beefy looking.
Use more recycled beer cans in the
metal. Build a motor and transmission
that are compatible. Put some cotton
over the stone seats. Take a cue from
Chevy and build a quality truck..
