Ok as posted this is my first truck. The owner of this truck told me if i could get it out of the mess of mud and branches i could keep it. So i got it out and towed it home. The vehicle is still under work because of the clutch but it has been running great otherwise.

"Jenny" as we call her was given to me after my father passed away about 11 years ago. At first I didn't drive her for about a year. It had 33,000 miles when I got her. Then I started using her for work. She has a 2.8L V6 with a five-speed and pretty much everything you could get on one of these trucks. Everyday, for the next two years I towed a 3000lb generator load bank and close to 1000lbs of tools and equipment around. I was putting 1000 miles a week or more on her. Never any problems except brakes. When I stopped this job she ran about 20,000 miles a year for the next 7 years. After 300,000 miles I've only replaced a tranny 3 clutches, two alternators and I've never been stranded.

Overall a great truck, bought new with 17 miles on it. Had some issues with paint job on bed, torsion bar breakage. I have used this to trailer a 16 foot boat, bed full of wood, up and down hills in southern Ohio and it still pulls the load. Body to frame mounts are rusting out, door pins are worn out. A/C still works. Tune up plugs and wires every year is easy and cheap. I love this truck!

Purchased at 48k miles, now have 146k
miles, mostly highway. Other than very
few routine repairs (water pump, belt,
alternater, brakes), this truck is the
least costly vehicle I've ever owned
and it holds its value. At oil
changes, I'd look around the engine to
see what needed to be repaired, but
each time nothing needed replaced or
If it weren't for a growing family, I'd
keep it, but the cab is too small for
two adults and a car seat; now another
baby is on the way.
Use Uniroyal tires for best ride and

Bought from friend with 166,000 miles
on it. Has been in major front end
collision, but well restored. Runs
great, no rattles, clanks, etc.
Everything except the cruise works.
Easy to work on. I've helped him
several times on things before I bought
Ran great until 30k miles. Had to
replace distributor cap and rotor button
plug wires and plugs. Every year I have
to do this same thing or the engine
will start miss firing. after owning
the truck 3years the control module
went out. I just replaced the control
module again plus the coil.
