I purchased this truck new in 2003. Loved the look and the price. Best price I could find on a 3/4 ton pick up. Ball joints went bad the moment the warranty ran out. ABS control went out approximately the same time. I've never had it fixed because of the cost of the part. Had to replace the ball joints a second time as well as some other front end parts. The only thing I do with this truck other normal highway driving is pull a 2 horse trailer 2-3 times a year and haul some hay once in while. 14 years later the original battery has finally died. The rear fenders and bed are rusted so badly that it wont pass a safety inspection so I cant really drive it.
