When I got the truck (91K miles)it could not pass emissions. Replaced a sensor no problem. I knew it needed work it had been parked for 5 years.I have put about $1,500 in it including tires. It has been reliable since then. It has more power that most people will ever need and has good manners for a truck. The payload is amazing for a compact, I load it with green firewood up to the rails and it still drives fine. Most half ton trucks would not take it. If you get this truck shop for an aluminum pressure tank to replace the plastic anti-freeze tank. look at the Comanche web sites. One club is exceptional and helpful. If you do a search for it you will find it.
Lots of tork on the bottom end and quick on the top end. Despite being a compact P/U you can actually haul something with it.
First bring it back! Then make the cab a bit longer. Add cup holders. Get rid of the plastic Anti-freeze pressure vessel. (A Renolt hold over.)
