I've owned this truck for two years and it is by far the best truck I've ever owned. The interior has plenty of room and the exterior looks sharp. My truck has over 200k and it still runs strong. I love the power of the 350ci V8, especially with a set of flowmaster duals. The limited-slip is another wonderful thing bout this truck. This truck is a performer and a reliable worker.
The 350ci V8. Pulls my 14ft trailer with little effort. It also shuts down those annoying little ricer cars.
A firmer shifting tranny, better tailgate design, disk brakes in rear.
I thought this would be a great truck
for many years, but recent problems
now occur. I have replaced the
radiator, A/c condensor, heater core
and now transmission in the past year,
and this takes my reliability score
down. Its a nice drive, just problems
Smooth ride. Good space. Nice fuel
economy in the V6.
Excellent truck. Flaws include: Intake
manifold gasket started leaking around
60K, 1 oxygen sensor around 45K, U-
joints around 65K, windshield wiper
module. All relatively inexpensive
items to fix. Front brake pads lasted
80K (all city miles - they will last if
you don't drive like a maniac). 16mpg
in city, almost 20 mpg on highway (5.0
Easy to work on, parts easy to find.
Only concerning flaw for me is the
intake manifold gasket - several
mechanics told me this is a common
problem. It could cause problems if you
let it go.
