This truck is just about perfect. Great power, handling, comfort. The gas mileage could be better (averaging 16 mpg in mixed highway). Has a high fun factor, throw it into corners and punch it merging on the freeway. I bought the sports package with stereo upgrade, and had the Snugtop shell installed by the factory. All well worth the money in my opinion.
Handling, Snugtop shell, composite bed, power outlet in the back.
I agree that the factory side step rails are pretty much useless. They need to be lower and stick out further. Get some aftermarket ones instead.
