Well, my parents bought it new to economize from the Suburban. I took it over my 3rd yr. of college because dad ruined the transmission in my 1993 Dodge Dakota. what can I say 189,000 mi or so and I've replaced everything on the vehicle once. But she survived very cruel treatment between my first few driving lessons, teen-driving, and off roading for volunteer fire calls. Money's-worth yes, but not anymore sunk too much into it this last time.
Tailgate, roofrack, and engine definitely powerful enough.
Reduce NVH especially when driving with windows down. The wind entering the car actually thuds.
