Bought it used with 20,200 miles. No engine problems. Did have issues with parking brake setup. Mechanism froze up and brake shoes were toasted. Seems to be common problem with the rear disc brake/drum parking brake setup due to infrequent use of parking brake. Easy fix for $28 with parts from auto stores. Gas mileage is what you expect from full size truck - 15 city/18 highway.
Moonroof (not many trucks have sunroofs), 4wd, looks of stepside bed, and overall utility of a truck.
More tie down points in bed. Stepside does not have the loops on the bed rail, only one in each corner of the bed.
