mixed review of Cummins Turbo model

ReviewI was with my dad when he bought this
truck new in 1992 and 5 years and
105,000 miles later I bought it from
him. He put 105K on pulling a big
fifth wheel all over the country and
went through 3 transmissions before
finally getting one that stuck. The
cummins TD is a gem and will never
fail. Ever. And the truck will pull
anything and gets fantastic mileage
with and without a load. But I have
had a ton of problems underneath with U-
joints, wheel bearings and seals, and
the rear differential. I poured
thousands into this truck repeatedly
and finally decided I would stop and
just "drive it til it blows". Problem
is that it won't.
Best FeaturesFuel economy, power, actually a good looking ruck for the year, and the big extended cab without a bench seat so I actually have room for gear inside.
Worst FeaturesThis truck is a pig offroad without specialized tires (the big heavy diesel upfront weighs it down) and you must be in 4WD to handle snow and ice. The transmission and other running gear is prone to fail and very expensive to fix.
