Great little truck

Awesome truck! I bought it used and lost it in a bad wreck today. Truck I found out the hard way was built incredibly well, and it truthfully saved my four-year-old's and my life in a head-on collision. Over the years, I would maintain the truck and it just kept putting down the road. Gas mileage was about 20MPG and served as a great lightweight utility and commute truck. Overall, it was an amazing truck and will be missed.
The truck was real basic (no power windows or locks, etc), so there's not really any feature that stands out. Easy and smooth driving. Handled well like a sedan, yet still had the feel of a truck. Good gas mileage which makes commuting easier.
My only complaint was the four- cylinder engine really lacked power, which limited its ability to maneuver traffic or carry any real heavy loads.
