Summary:

A indestructible super truck

Faults:

Blew both head gaskets (at same time) at 225000 miles.

The original carpet has started to form a hole on the drivers seat.

Blinker switch went out.

General Comments:

This car is seriously a tank. I have put this through the hardest off roading possible (including jumping it) while it have the stock 14" wheels and suspension on it. I am a pizza delivery driver and even though I blew both head gaskets it still ran for two more days till I had time to fix it so I could deliver. Also I found out it ran those few days with out oil also (it all burnt off due to blowing both head gaskets. It handles great and everybody I know including me call it "THE SUPER TRUCK"

Its incredible, I love my truck!!!

Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes

I had one of these, and I loved it, it was lifted 9 inches, 33' tires, and it was yellow! It still had its 2.8 v6, it was its 3rd motor, and holly cow was it reliable! In the dead of winter it started right up! And off-road was assume, though I did baby it allot. (It was in show condition) This truck was very roomy, I thought, but I loved it! Best first truck ever!
