Review

The body is a piece of junk. Door trim tore off because of missalignment. Both rear doors have ripples in the steel. Looks like an accordian. Box has paint bubbles. Key sticks in ignition most of the time. Locking rearend had to have clutch pack replaced. (chatter when turning) Transmission never shifts the same. First shift is either jerky or real jerky. Dealer said there was no problem. Heated seat quit working. Some things have been fixed under warrenty, but wavey doors and paint bubbles are still to be repaired. I know it will not ever be as good as it should be, after body work.

Best Features

If you don't see the ripples in the doors, it is a good looking truck. The interior is roomy and nice looking. If you keep your foot out of it, it will do fairly well on fuel. It rides well for a 4 wheel drive truck.

Worst Features

Better quality control on body. Replace the tilt steering wheel system. There is not enough travel to do any good, and it is (micky mouse), having to trip a lever.
