My father passed in 2012, I have been driving his truck around the beach ever since. He told me as long as I keep oil in it, it will run forever. Now has 267,000 on odometer and is smooth riding. Have taken it on trips where I won't trust my newer cars!! thanks Pops, Love ya!!
Speedometer replaced twice. A few brake jobs. Otherwise incredible. This this is like money in the bank. Runs the same as the day I bought it. Put a killer sound system with new interior and will drive it until the wheels fall off. Currently have 195,00 reliable miles ion it. Have had only three days downtime (power steering lower unit) for the past nineteen years. It may outlive me!
Bought this pickup in 1998. I've only had to put a battery in once. Runs strong and holds the road wonderfully. I pput on new shocks and tires at 108,000 in order to go the next 100,000 plus miles. I enjoy the 5 speed, and acceleration is great with the 225 engine.
Power. No rattles. body style is cool.
A/C does not cool as well as I would like, but I live in Austin, TX where is is Africa hot in the Summer.
