I like the truck, but it has had a problem with the instrument cluster. No speedometer, the air bag light goes on, and the ABS light goes on. It does not keep codes if you turn off the engine, and you must take to shop for a quick scan. It is in shop today. This is the 13th day at the dealer since I bought it. It could use more head room. I am 6'4", and if the seat is not set right, the roll over bar is on your head. I do love the color Patriot Blue Pearl coat. I guess that is why I bought it. This was the very first one the dealer had. I should have waited for a review before I bought.

Best Features

The setup of the driver controls is good. The fold up rear seats are easy to use. The bed liner keeps the back neat and easy to clean. The tie down hooks to secure loads come in very handy.

Worst Features

Needs more head room, and better speekers for the radio. Get the bugs out!
