for a college kid, couldn't ask for more. would drive to california without thinking twice. capable of moving furnature or whatever. little slow with the hp, but i would never second guess the engine. my dad bought it new, and we have never had a problem with it. Still runs and looks awsome.
all the faith in the world in the drive train. paint still looks great, worked on the rust problem in '94! spot rust because of some nicks and scratches (my fault). Easy to work on, little maintentance required if its not a work truck.
work on the rattling hard plastic dash. try to get some alloy wheels like the ranger or s-10. red paint chalks up after 6 years! a friend had one he got rid of because of the problem. weak radio! i solved the problem, but the manufacturer couldn't.
