Great trucks, never had any major problems with the engine or transmission, always was normal wear and tear items.
The truck get good gas mileage and is powerful! Would have been great if GM decided to back the ext cab four doors back in 97.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes

My neighbor has one of these, it's an unstoppable tank. It looks really bad, all dented and rusted, but works like a charm. We have towed our ATVS up huge hills, offroad, and it's only a 2wd! The truck has over 400k on the original motor, and will not quit. I would like to buy one myself someday.
