On paper this is a great truck. Trouble
is it could have been better assembled
by monkeys. Biggest gripe is with the
engine's plenum-pan gasket leaking. It
causes the engine to consume oil
excessively and ping heavily under load.
I don't know of one of these trucks
that doesn't have this problem (5.2 and
5.9L gas engines since 1994). It is
neither cheap nor easy to repair.
