Bought it 2 years old with 55K on it, and now have 125K. I've had no major problems, but have also performed more than regular maintenance on it. Little problems include speaker wires in the joint of the front doors breaking, has happened numerous times, and the drivers window lockout switch going bad, keeps the other switches from working when they should be. I've towed over 5K lbs a number of times, and have taken it off road several times as well and it keeps running strong!! Gas mileage is a little meak at 15 city and 20 highway, but I've noticed that Royal Purple oil inceases it considerably.
Cast iron block and heads. bullet proof motor. Gobs of torque. Solid front axle. Offroad and towing capability.
More inside insulation to prevent road noise and dash and panel rattles. More back seat room. Bring it back exactly how it was plus these improvements and I'd sure be happy
