This is a solid, reliable truck! I bought it used in '02. The only work I've had to do other than normal maintenance was replace the radiator, waterpump, ball joints and a tie rod end, and they were still the originals that came with the truck! Rides like a short wheel base truck with leaf's on all 4 corners, but seats are very comfortable. It's just this year starting to get some rust on the rockers. Note:always check above the windshield on these, they can tend to rust there, mine hasn't yet. The 360 FI engine run's like a bull, good 3-speed auto. tranny, excellent 4-wheel drive.I've never gotten stuck anywhere.Swallows ton's of cargo. I get anywhere from 13 to 16 mpg.
Solid truck. No rattles or shakes. Good power, mechanicals, and reliability. Comfortable seats. Folding rear seat and cargo capacity
Wish they still made them and added a 4 door model!
Had it for the last 5 years, and it was
purchased used. Overqall rating: I would
buy another one fi it was available.
Performance great, especially when
towing a 7000# boat. Few problems with
drivetrain. Handling great for a SUV
meant to work hard. ride quality better
than other makes of that time. Interior
very good and comfortable.
The brake system requires very heavy
pedal pressure to stop, and the rear
brakes don't seem to do their job.
