ReviewI chose this model as it could be converted to also use CNG and now I get about 20 mpg (CNG) on the freeway at 65 - 70 mph. With gasoline it would be 3 mpg better but CNG is $1.53/gal I use it in the mountains (+9000 feet) and it just goes anywhere. Upgraded to 285/75/16 tires for a snowplow (clearance) - Plow works fine with the 160 amp alternator. Replaced the catalytic converter in first year but otherwise no problems and I now have 34K miles and 2 years on it. I enjoy driving this truck. Its comfortable and rides easy. I tow a 8000 lb back hoe trailer with ease.
Best Features6 speed transmission with the manual gear selection option. 4WD on the fly shift in to or out of 4HI.
Worst FeaturesA 4WD indicator light on speedometer - the 4wd control is hidden by the steering wheel and gear shift. Larger tires.
