I wanted a truck to haul building materials over long distances and looks good while doing it. That's this truck, and I love it. I added some chrome wheels and accessories, and still kept the pricetag under $26k. Fuel economy is great, I took a 500 mi. trip, and rolled into my destination with 1/8 of a tank of fuel left, and this was with a 1000# load up and down mountainsides! Great truck! Thanks FoMoCo!
Really impressed with the looks, load capability, and comfort levels. I also like the behind the seats tool storage bin, which is extraordinarily useful.
Only thing I wish is the engine had about 25-50 hp more, and maybe offer a 6sp. transmission option.
