I bought this truck in 2001 with 60K on it.
It was an excellent, excellent truck.
I replaced the alternator around 100K and did normal maintenence on it other than that.
It started up every time, fun to drive (although the rear-wheel drive could be a little tricky if the roads were slick), used and abused it.
The light bulbs behind the display went out slowly over the years--no big deal.
I loaded all kinds of things in this truck over the years.
It got great gas mileage.
I had owned it for 10 years and put 90K on it when I was rear-ended and the truck was totalled.
It could have been a much more serious accident, but the solid construction of this little truck saved me.
It was a simple, bare-bones truck.
No power anything!
It was great though.
Nothing to break.
After bringing a lot of mud onto the rubber floor a few times, I actually hosed out the interior floor. Like I said, other than scheduled maintenence and a new alternator, it never needed anything.
I wished it had a cup holder more than once.
I also wished for power-steering when I was trying to park in a tight space.
