Bought a new (used) '97 T100 and can't say enough good about the truck. Just changed out timing belt/water pump and cv boots/front axles- 143,000 well taken care of miles from previous owner. Added chrome nerf bars and Zaino clay bar and wax. What a beaut. Ride and handling is adequate, mechanical quality is simple yet superb and exterior styling just make this truck special and will hold it's value for years to come. Buy one that has been treated well if you can find one.
Exterior styling, well designed truck for its time.
