In for the Long Haul

ReviewPurchased the truck new and have put 144K on it. Plan to keep until 250K or 300K. Inline 6 300CI engine is Very Tough and reliable. Never been touched. 5 Speed box is very good. Clutch very good. A/C, power steering, power brakes never been touched. Body excellent but doesn't have the fit or finish of a GM truck. Bad Points...Brakes lousy in wet weather since day one. Hydraulic clutch actuator is REALLY bad. Works great but is made out of plastic so has to be replaced periodically.
Best FeaturesAccessability to engine and components is very good.
Worst FeaturesGet rid of hydraulic clutch actuation. The aggrevation of leaks and breakage is not worth its smoother action. Have spent over $1000 on the clutch activation repairs only...not the clutch itself! Upsize the wheel bearings, driveshaft, and brakes to a man-sized vehicle.
