Review
I bought this to pull my 19' Robalo fishing boat here and there, which it does SURPRISINGLY well. Took it 585 miles to Lake Powell, no problem) Worked a little hard on the grades, but maintained 60mph most of the time, AND managed about 12mpg. I added an air lift airbag suspension system which is a MUST. It was 100 degrees, and the temp. guage never budged! That 5.0 V8 is pretty outstanding. BUT....man, this thing rides HARSH.... even after new, softer shocks, it beats ya up a bit. But hey, it's a truck. The check engine light comes on frequently, indicating a faulty gas cap. One of the o2 sensors needed replacing at about 55,000 miles.
Favorite Features
On board computer that monitors oil changes, mileage, range, fuel usage, etc...VERY COOL! EASY to fold down rear seats. VERY powerful engine for vehicle this size.
Suggested Improvements
Softer ride, but the new one's get that independent suspension, which should help. Newer one's have had terrible reliability from everything I've read though.
