I bought this truck with a lot of of forethought. I have 50+ on this truck with only 1 significant problem (steering linkage) replaced and upgraded no problem. Yes the check engine light comes on when my wife drives it around town too much so I take it out on the highway and get on it ,no problems have come from it so far yes its annoying but the trucks positives outweigh it so far. Good mpg 18 all around. Did great 4x4 through death valley and 395 through a blizzard. Love the excellent brakes. Still have a good 50+ left on the front and more on the rear. I may not have as many problems with the soot in sensor issue due to the manual tranny which allows me to do the thinking not the computer .
Engine power, roomy, brakes, handling
Needs a 3" lift, tire should come stock 33", needs improved air intake, front and rear air lockers should come stock on all 4x4, better front and rear bumpers anyone remember steel? Deal with the emission build up problem
