SUV was excellent, no problems was so ever.

I stuck 24" Jesse James Wheels.357 rims on it, tinted the windows and a DVD player with 5.6" screens in the headrests and a 7" in the middle console.

Everything audio/visual was Audiobahn products and connected by a professional.

Summary:

A smooth, quiet and classy ride, that can pull a lot

Faults:

One of the rear door speakers blew.

The rear tailgate (glass portion) was rattling.

General Comments:

The truck is a gas guzzler, but that was expected before the purchase was made.

The truck rides very well, even with 64k+ miles. There are no rattles (other than the rear glass, which was a quick fix at home), or vibrations and the truck is stable at all speeds.

I purchased this truck because I needed a capable tow vehicle. Although I've never had more than 3500 pounds (ski boat) behind me, the truck pulled it with ease. When I have my double trailer and two Sea Doos behind the truck, I can't even tell that the trailer is back there.

The brakes seem to require a good amount of pedal travel before starting to stop the truck, but they decelerate all the momentum of the heavy truck well enough.
