Great truck, if you see one, BUY IT
The only mechanical issues I ever had was the fuel injector pump, but this was already an issue when I bought it. This was somewhat expensive, but this was the only non-maintenance repair I ever did.
When I had this truck, I was pretty much in love with it. I know it wasn't as powerful as the Cummins 12V, but it was still great to drive, even with the automatic transmission. The transmission was a 4L60E, possibly the only non-crappy auto from this time period. Anyways, I miss the hell out of this truck and being able to do real truck things, but I was dumb and sold it to buy a Ford Ranger. (Worst decision EVER)
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
