137,000 miles and the only repair we
have had was a new fuel pump. This is
a solid, quality truck from a little
known manufacturer. We love our
Boxy style (like a Land Rover), high
seating position, excellent visibility,
four wheel disc brakes with ABS, four
wheel drive that uses a lever to
engage, has a ton of space for hauling
gear, reliabile, exclusivity since

Rear wiper doesn't clean off much,
