Summary:

Like a rock

Faults:

Just recently changed fuel tank.

Replaced brake line.

Replaced exhaust a year ago.

Very reliable. The 4.3 is a great motor.

If towing, get a standard tranny.

General Comments:

18 MPG average, great 4x4 in the winter.

Change the oil and tune up every 50,000, and it will last forever. It's easy to maintain yourself.

"Like a rock". Hmmmm... sounds like a good advertising slogan... wow! They could even play the song in the commercials! ;)

You would need a fairly dim marketing department to approve a slogan implying large, heavy, and immovable products.
