We use it on the farm, to and from town and for an occasional commuter vehicle. The 2.3L and manual transmission move it quite well. It has enough torque to use in the fields (with real AT tires added) and still gets 27+ MPG on the highway.
Seat comfort and driving dynamics are excellent.
It really needs a switchable limited slip axle. We replaced the tires with Toyo Open Countrys and the truck goes through mud & snow very well.
