ReviewBought this '99 B4000SE 4WD in July 2001, very happy w/ vehicle. Std trans. w/ 4.0L 6-cyl is definitely truck-like - plenty of torque for hauling, but not zippy on the highway unless you really push up the rpms. If you accept that it's a truck and not a sportscar, it's a pleasure to drive, wonderful for hauling/towing, reliable, and handsome to boot. Ex. cab is not for adults, but just fine for my little boy. Body holding up well in Northeast snow/salt. Roomier-feeling cab than Toyota. Quiet for a truck, able to enjoy sound system. Overall, love it!
Best FeaturesIdentical to Ford Ranger but less expensive.
Worst FeaturesSuggest getting rid of Firestone tires (orig equip) and putting on a good pair of all-terrain tires - what an improvement in handling (esp. snow)! Replaced air filter w/ hi-performance, bed liner and edge guards, receiver hitch recommended if you do any hauling.
