I bought this baby 4 years ago
w/~120,000 on the clock. I love it!
From what I understand it is the last
year of the long bed w/ the one ton
option. This truck carries more than my
brothers big Ford, can tow over 5000
lbs., is EXtremely quick, and is
always reliable. I now have about 150k
on it and plan on keeping it until it
croaks, which is probably many years
down the road (my last Toyota-1984 cost
me $700 and lasted over 200k and 10
years). Do not hesitate to buy this
truck, if you don't tell me and I will.
Bought this truck with only 1 option on it (rear bumper) in 91 for $7900. The first problem I had out of it was at 192000 miles, the original fan belt broke. The second issue I had was at 303000 miles the clutch finally gave out. At this time, I replaced a couple of gaskets on it because of of oil leaks and that is it. Honestly, I couldn't have ask for a better truck. At 320000 the truck still drives almost like it did when I bought it. I wouldn't be surprised if I got another 300000 out of it. I have put city miles as well as highway miles on it. I am amazed at how reliable and durable this truck has been. I do wish I could find another seat for it though because the one in it is worn out.
My father passed in 2012, I have been driving his truck around the beach ever since. He told me as long as I keep oil in it, it will run forever. Now has 267,000 on odometer and is smooth riding. Have taken it on trips where I won't trust my newer cars!! thanks Pops, Love ya!!
