Have had this truck for a few years now and it has been amazing. Can do everything from cruising down the highway to hauling loads of lumber from the forest down logging roads. It's held up great except for a master clutch cylinder at about 400k and a couple of mufflers. Oh, and a pinion seal. Other than that it's been great. Bought it at about 200k now around 400k.
Bought my truck at 9 months old with 18000 miles on it. Other than the head recall it has been solidly reliable. I have put the ground system, k&n air cleaner on and it gets me a solid 20+MPG in the city. It has 135000 on it right now. The 4 wheel drive, sunroof, deluxe interior are everything I need.
Have had this car since brand new.
Repairs can be costly, but I guess some
things will go wrong over 11 years.
Much better than my ford explorer, dont
make the mistake of buying one. I have
190000 miles, drive it in baja
frequently, and have replaced the
clutch, brakes, rebuilt transmission,
power steering pump, water pump, and
thats about it.
automatic 4 wheel drive, dont have to
get out of car.
