It's a great little truck -- very
handy. I purchased the shortbed for
ease of handling offroad, but would
prefer the longbed for hauling loads.
Handling is very nice with less
understeer than some of the
competitors' offerings and better ride
than the Tacoma, which I also looked
-- Five speed transmission.
-- Bed extender.
-- 4.61 axle gearing.
-- Excellent dependibility
-- Excellent value for the $$$.
-- More low end torque. (Maybe the 3.4
or 3.8 V6?)
-- 2.73 or lower gearing in transfer
-- Redesign the front bodywork to
accomodate a winchmount and bumper,
please!!! (ARB or similar) The 2000
nose was MUCH better for that.
