This is a real truck. There is nothing
it can't do. It's the most
comfortable, powerful and reliable
vehicle I've ever owned. It is so long
legged the miles just melt under it's
feet. Get behind the wheel and you
won't believe how it gobbles up the
miles. It will surprise you with it's
off-road power and capability. Nine
years and 214,000 miles and no hint of
stopping. At 105,000 miles a diesel
mechanic told me it's just now broken
The 7.3L diesel engine is 440 cubic
inches of turbo-charged diesel fury.
JUST HAD THIS TRUCK FOR ABOUT 2 1/2
MONTHS. BOUGHT IT AS A 9 YEAR OLD
TRUCK WITH JUST 38,000 MILES ON IT. I
SPECIFICALLY BOUGHT IT TO PULL A 5TH
WHEEL CAMPER. SO FAR, IT IS A JEWEL.
MORE THAN ENOUGH POWER, STYLE AND
HANDLING ARE EXCELLENT. I GET
COMPLIMENTS EVERYWHERE I GO. OKAY,
I'VE ONLY PUT 1,000 OF MY OWN MILES ON
IT. HOWEVER, I INTEND TO KEEP IT FOR A
LONG TIME. THE MPG IS POOR AT ABOUT
11MPG...BUT, HEY, YOU DON'T BUY THIS
KIND OF TRUCK FOR GAS MILEAGE. YOU BUY
IT FOR DURABILITY, FLEXIBILITY AND
DRIVEABILITY. OH, YEAH, IT WILL DO
ANYTHING YOU WANT OR NEED IT TO DO.
This truck has been every thing I was
looking for when I bought it . We pull
our 5th wheel camper or our tractor
loader. both put us in to the 19,000 lb
area . Our 94 turbo diesel does the job
and than some. I plan on keeping it
till it's ten and than I'll look at
what is on the market than .
I bought this truck a year old with
only 800 miles in Fairbanks Alaska. I
changed out the antifreeze to handle -
60 and colder temperatures and added
some synthetic oils. This truck has
never quit on me in the coldest and
hotest temperatures. I have over loaded
and over towed the recommended
allowances and yet the truck is still
tough. I have not looked at another
truck, due to it's reliability and
dependability. For deisel mileage, I'm
getting about 16mpg, not bad for a 1
ton. It's a plane and simple truck, but
that's what a truck is suppose to be.
Not a car.
