Bought this truck to tow my family's 20ft ATV trailer on weekend outings. Fully loaded we're only pulling a little over 3,000 lbs. and you can hardly tell it's back there. The 7.5 liter V-8 consistently gets 8-10 mpg but I really didn't expect any better. We just rolled over 100K miles and I'm thinking this truck's good for another 100K. We did just have to replace the U-joints and put brakes on it but I consider that normal maintenance.
The extended cab is really roomy. 3 kids between 9-12 ride on up to 4 hour trips with no complaints. It's just a really solid truck.
As with most long bed extended cab trucks the turning radius is really long.
