Great all around truck!
My transmission had to be rebuilt at 140k. This was partly my fault the pick up was towed 20 miles with the transfer case in 2H.
I had trouble with the ECM fuse blowing when I drove it for two hour or more. I replaced the fuel pump, the ECM sendind unit, and finally split that ECM circuit which did the trick. (128k)
Replaced the alternator at 140k.
Replaced both door bushings/pins, and the driver's side latch assembly at 108k.
Replaced the radiator at 128k.
Replaced the water pump at 123k.
Replaced the starter at 116k.
Replaced the tail pipe and muffler at 106k.
Replaced a windshield wiper motor at 114k.
Replaced all four brakes plus front rotors at 124k.
The factory paint job is prone to peeling. I am going to need a new paint job and I bought the truck this way.
This type of truck is a rugged work truck that has given me three years of services and I am guessing many more.
The ride is a little rough due to the 3/4 ton suspension; However the truck has better ground clearance for four wheel drive once you get use to it you do not even notice.
The torque and acceleration is awesome.
Overall I am very pleased with this truck the only draw back is the factory paint of this particular year is peeling off the truck.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
