This truck has served me very well for the past 6 years. I bought it from a friend in 2000, at that time it had 100k miles on it. I t now has 174k and it's still running great. The oil gets changed every 3k or so and I have had no major issues in that period of time. It gets about 15-18mi per gallon which is kind of a drag, but it also is a great off-road vehicle with a nice suspension and drive train for rocky terrain. I would however give this truck poor ratings for power; 4th and 5th gears are not really made for long hills. And towing anything heavy is not so recommended. The automatic version does not have this fault. Other than that this vehicle is very well built and fun to drive.
