Review

EXCELLENT TRUCK!. I HAVE A 4.9 STRAIGHT SIX WITH A 5 SPEED. THE ONLY FUSS IS REGARDING THE PLASTIC COMPONENTS USED IN THE HYDRAULIC CLUTCH SYSTEM. THE PLUNGER ROD THAT CONNECTS TO THE MASTER CYLINDER IS MADE OF PLASTIC. IT IS HELD IN PLACE WITH A PLASTIC BUSHING THAT WEARS OUT EVERY 30,000 MILES. THESE TWO CHEAP COMPONENTS CAUSE CLUTCH LOSS MORE OFTEN THAN ANY TRUCK OWNER WOULD EXPECT, HOWEVER THE PROBLEM IS EASY TO FIX. JUST TAKE THE PLUNGER ROD OUT OF THE CLUTCH MASTER CYLINDER AND HAVE YOUR LOCAL MACHINE SHOP MAKE YOU ONE OUT OF STEEL. PROBLEM SOLVED. NOW YOU HAVE A BULLETPROOF 300,000 MILE TRUCK.

Best Features

STRONG RELIABLE CONSTRUCTION OVERALL. BULLETPROOF ENGINE AND POWERTRAIN (EXCEPT FOR PLASTIC HYDRAULIC CLUTCH COMPONENTS). MINE HAS 178,000 MILES. I WOULD DRIVE IT TO ALASKA TOMORROW.

Worst Features

REPLACE CLUTCH MASTER AND SLAVE CLYINDERS WITH METAL COMPONENTS INSTEAD OF PLASTIC. THESE ARE THE ONLY THINGS PREVENTING THIS RIDE FROM A 100% RELIABLE RATING.
