Overall I feel this truck to be a strong performer and I found it well worth the money spent
The only problems I have encountered with this truck are problems I have caused myself. I have fried the starter, from it being covered in mud for a extended period of time and overheating.
The only other problem I have encountered was having the third door's handle break.
This truck although mildly underpowered in my opinion performs very well both on road and off.
On road this truck handles very well, and never seams to have excessive body roll. It have decent pickup however it does feel like it needs a bit of a horsepower boost. The brakes are not the most powerful brakes I have ever seen on a truck, but they do the job relatively well. The road noise never seams to get to loud.
Off road this truck far surpasses my expectations. I am a avid off roader, and I have pushed this truck to its limits while it was stock and found it to perform extremely well. I have currently installed a 5" suspension lift from BDS and I am running 33" Bf Goodrich mud terrain tires.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
