Amazing little truck with POWER!
Needed new tires when I got it; bought new ones for $200.
Had no radio. Installed a new Pioneer head unit for $70.
No catalytic converter. Exhaust is barely hanging on ha ha. Has a straight pipe.
Has a hole in the tank, only holds a quarter of a tank, bought it like this though.
Gear selector is kinda of funny, and sometimes will start in reverse.
Body is kinda of rough; has some rust.
The lights on the gauge are barely visible.
Needs a tune up. Just put new spark plugs in though, just needs a few more things.
Door doesn't like to shut correct. It will stay shut, but just kinda of hangs. Was like that when I bought it though.
Okay, I know I've listed a lot of problems with this truck, but please don't get the impression that this truck is unreliable, because it's truly not.
The person I bought this from obviously took poor care of it. When I bought it, the rear tires had no tread on them, glove box was gone, no radio, he'd painted the truck black with red stripes, and I like the way it looks, but he got paint on the windows.
If you get a truck like this, make sure it has the 4.3 V6, because it truly rocks. The acceleration is amazing, and even though the exhaust is hooked up crappy, it gives a nice big roar down the road. I'm not kidding, this truck with this engine is no joke quick.
It also has a nice stock sound system too. I have a Pioneer head unit in the there too. Sounds really nice.
This is not a truck for some one who is bigger, and the bench seat can be kinda of be annoying for the passenger if you are short like me; I'm 5' 4", so yeah ha ha.
I love this truck, and plan to have it for a long time too. There is just something special about it that truly makes it a pleasure to drive.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
