I bought the standard cab V6 6 speed manual new as my work truck. It currently has 118000 miles with the original clutch and has only required the standard maintenance (tires, oil, filters, spark plugs, brake pads, rotors). With the tool boxes and welder it carries an extra 1500 lbs in the bed at all times with no problems.
Low maintenance, decent fuel economy (18mpg), value (purchased new for $14,600).
My two wheel drive pickup truck pulled
multiple bushes and small stumps out
without a problem. It handled loads up
to 2300 LB of dirt,gravel,sand and
stonedust in the bed. always started
right up never gave any hassle.
