Very reliable truck considering I
abused it for 145K miles. Only
had to replace the battery (~100K),
rear axle oil seals (~130K - only $7
each & easy to replace) & exhaust
manifold (hairline crack ~140K - good
excuse to get a header, another easy
install). Holds up well with heavy
loads. The 2.7L is real easy to
maintain and practically bulletproof,
except for the ex manifold. Does real
well off-road even w/2wd. Lifts and
other mods to improve its already great
off-road ability are also easy to do.
Biggest complaint is the uncomfortable
front seats - could use more padding.
Rear seats are for tiny kids only.
Drivetrain reliability, overall build
quality and fun to drive off-road.
More comfortable front seats. Stronger
