Review

As someone who puts a truck through its paces 6 days a week on rough, dirt roads, I have been somewhat disappointed with this vehicle. I've had one side mirror replaced that wouldn't hold its position, one headlight which was loose, the rear pinion seal replaced twice, the mud flaps on the rear replaced and modified (the lip on the bottom of the flaps hold mud and snow and the weight pulls the flap off since they are not attached except by one bolt and two screws), I am currently waiting for a replacement valve on the top of the fuel tank that sometimes prevents fuel from entering the fuel tank at a normal speed. Even the service manager is unhappy with this truck's number of problems!

Best Features

Ease of switching from 2WD to 4WD. Back swinging rear doors. Fairly smooth ride on rough roads.

Worst Features

Clutch needs to be quieter when engaged. Rear-view mirror is too low and blocks line of vision. Redesign mudflaps--current ones are horrid. Improve overall quality--too many things going wrong with a truck that's still under warranty. Use same size spare tire as those on vehicle (mine is larger).
