This is the best truck I have ever owned. I have 175,000 miles on it and it has the original transmission (w/ a shift kit), original engine (5.8L), and almost all original parts. This truck will still outrun my 97 Vortec 350 Z71 Chevrolet with ease. The only parts that I have replaced on this truck are the starter and the alternator. It still gets me to work and through anything I need to get through when I'm hunting. This truck should be the role model for all other trucks.
Insane 5.8 that barked 2nd gear before the shift kit was installed. Goes through anything. Love the way it looks. Power lumbar. All around tough.
Tailgate latch. Gas mileage is terrible, but it's also on 35's with 4.10 gears. Power window and door lock switches fail about every 10,000 miles.
