Summary:

Best truck ever made, period

Faults:

Original engine had the timing chain slip and I had a "rebuilt" put in about 5 years ago.

Radiator.

Ball-joint.

General Comments:

This is the toughest, most reliable heavy work-truck imaginable. It's built like a tank, and with its 8.5 foot bed (special option with extended 133" wheel base) it is a dream. A.C.,P.S.,P.B, Heavy Duty close-ratio NP 435 transmission, etc.

They don't make them like this anymore!

Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
