Summary:

Willy Nelson has one just like it!

Faults:

Engine control unit failed due to Utility Package (110V inverter) frying the on-board voltage regulator-engine still ran, but headlights pulsed. Rear-Wheel anti-lock dump valve failure, cured by disconnect and brake line by-pass (symptom-no rear-brakes). Speed Sensor seal caused failure of speedometer (cheap fix). Anti-Spin Differential Failure due to Utility Company running different size tires on rear (Now open-differential action). White paint peeling off of Galvanized panels, but no rust, except where crashed-NOTHING ELSE!

General Comments:

This has been the best vehicle I have ever owned. 145K miles, no leaks, no smoke. Starts every time. Not the best for icy conditions, but pulls like a mule. Tire smoking power with 3 inch y-pipe back exhaust. Not the best fuel economy with a 3 Speed auto, but a truck that won't die is worth it. Drove it from Detroit to Tampa and all over the South, then back to Detroit. It's been in two feature-length motion pictures (have you?). Survived a crash with a Toyota 4-runner in GA.

Summary:

Great! Will be collector truck of the future

Faults:

Front brakes & rotors replaced - $300.00.

Ball joint bad / fuel line near tank bad, tank would have to be removed to replace.

Exhaust & muffler replaced - $300.00.

Cruise control button broke off.

Vent blower works only in 3rd position.

Paint is lousy - peeling all over.

General Comments:

I love this truck, it really is low maintenance.

Drives super.

Mileage not so good: 12-15mpg.

Great engine, and I mean great.

Pulls bushes out of ground with a log chain like it was made to do it.

Ext cab and long bed. Virtually no serious rust.

I could not replace this truck and its reliablity for twice the money. It's a keeper after 3 years. I paid $2000.00 and 600-800 dollars on repairs.
