The vehicle is tough. The height to
width ratio is such that roll is more
pronounced that with wider vehicles.
Torque curve is such that powering
ahead is best in the 2000 to 2500 rpm
range. The vehicle has good metal;
some of the newer vehicles of today
leave something to be desired when it
comes to skin thickness. The vehicle
corners well. Its twin I-beam front
suspension is such that outboard front
wheel tuck is well mitigated because
spring compression produces an opposing
angle to wheel tuck. Its 4.0 uses no
oil, and supplies ample power.
Transmission is a manual 5-speed, which
affords great versatility. Overall, I
give the truck and 8.0.
Daytime pull-to-flash high beam stalk.
Overdrive (5th gear) on interstate.
Air conditioning; one of the best
systems I've experienced.
