Everything you need in a truck!
The ball joints had to be replaced when I got it and they looked like stock joints when I took the previous ones off. other than that everything worked perfect.
At 200,000 miles the stock clutch needed to be replaced. After a while it wouldn't disengage all the way.
Dash cracked apart.
Parts for this truck are cheap and plentiful.
Many modifications and accessories are available and are extremely cheap for this truck.
Very easy to work on mechanically.
Extremely safe vehicle, I hit a rock wall head on at 55 mph (hit some black-ice) and only got mild whiplash. The truck was toast of course. It bent the frame, motor mounts, shock mounts, both front fenders, one door and buckled the hood. It also has a built in roll bar.
The power this truck has is amazing. Especially with the TBI 350 and the four speed with a "granny" low gear. It could pull the stink off a skunk.
Did OK on gas mileage. 15-ish in the city and on the highway it got 20mpg. Pretty good for the power it has.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
