I got this as my first truck and it is the best and most reliable truck. The only thing i have replaced is the CV joint boots and a e-brake cable. And you know what i have a K&N intake system. dual flowmaster exhaust and a throttle body spacer and it is pumping out just as much as a small V6. I have a 2" body lift and 3" susp. lift with 32/11.50 mud terrians and it gets about 14 mpg. I would never trade this truck for anything else. its takes a beating from me from mud bogging to just normal day driving, so basically its the best truck around and wouldnt trade it for the world
only had to replace a CV joint boot and 3-brake cable...now you tell me what would you improve? nothing!
Throughout its life, we have used this
truck to pull full size pickups out of
ditches during snow storms, loaded the
bed with enough lumber to build a 10x10
deck, and a pallet of slate stone
(roughly 1 ton of stone), and on top of
that dove it 150 miles a day for the
daily commute. This truck RELIABLE.
The body is still in good shape with a
few rust spots due to the harsh snow
and road salt of northeastern Ohio
winters. And until just recently,
(with us now in the Harsh southern sun)
the paint finish was good. The clear
coat is now flaking. No complaints
with this truck at all. Hope we get
another 300,000 miles of service.
4x4, and Reliability
NONE, just build the new trucks as
dependable and as affordable as this
