I have been driving this truck for the last 2 years. It still has stock clutch that has no problems. I put on larger tires P225 75 R15 than the stock P205. This truck has enough power to tow my smoker craft boat and is very realible on long trips. It's OK on gas.
The best feature is the 4 wheel drive on this truck. This truck sits a little low, but it makes up for its ablity to get out of mud and snow.
The only little problem is that it sits too low making 4x4 a little tricky. There isn't anything that could stop this truck.
When I 1st bought this truck in 2000, i
was impressed with the power output
from the engine,4.3 v6. Long bed is
nice to have since I was in the
construction business. Many many
repairs though. Alternator just went
out at 150K. the tranny is going out at
150K. The AC is still good
surprisingly. The digital dashboard
only works half the time, sometimes
even the speedometer wont light
up.power door locks dont work anymore.
powerful engine, cruise control.
bad gas mileage, lots of little stuff
needing to be repaired, seems every
other month Im back in the shop. need
center console and better suspension.
