ReviewThe 4.0L V6 provides plenty of starting, passing, and pulling power. City gas mileage with the A/C on is miserable, ~15mpg. Without cargo, this truck is sometimes embarassing to drive on hilly roads (like Seattle) in the rain, as the rearend is very light. I end up using the 4WD to make turns on hills and quick moves into traffic from side streets. Reliability has been good, at 59,000 miles I've only had one problem, minor at first, that turned worse because of lack of interest from the original dealer. A different dealer immediately addressed the problem (then big) and did a warranty repair. All things considered, this is a good vehicle.
Best Features4.0L V6, 5 spd automatic tranny, pulse- vacuum hublocks allow total free-wheel of front drive-line, axle and CVs.
Worst FeaturesTry to even up weight distribution or add a full-time 4WD option.
