After first seeing the new ´94 design, I just had to buy it. 15 years and 105k miles, it´s still very dependable. Have replaced water pump, brakes at about 60k, master cylinder, and recently the starter. Other than that, regular maintenance has kept it running well. Plus, I´ve babied it, never hauled anything. Of course, the paint started peeling. I spent about 10 hours with sand paper and some $20 worth of paint from autozone and it looks presentable. Dash is cracked and have replaced cupholder. All in all, a very dependable truck for quite a while. I still get 15mpg 80% freeway driving with the 5.9l 360 cu.in. engine.
The new '94 body style really turned my head so I put down $19k for it, figuring I'd need to drive it 10 years to get my money out of it.I've had it 14 1/2 yrs, 95k mi, and have only replaced water pump, starter, and oil pressure gauge indicator. Of course the paint started peeling off in many places, so I just did a little sanding and painting (about $40 worth) and it's hardly noticeable. It still runs very smoothly and gets about 15 mpg city/hwy. I'm ready for something new but just can't see getting rid of a comfortable reliable ride that has no payments. The bikes fit in the back and the kids and wife still fit in the front. I'll probably drive it another 10 yrs, count the $ I'm saving
Just bought this truck used. Only has 68,000 miles on it. I have been driving it for about a month now and it is awesome. This will be my son's first truck. It has power, but not too much to get him in trouble. It sits up nice and high and handles excellent! The previous owner took great care in maintaning this truck. Having no recalls on this model ensures me of the quallity.
