Summary:

Great!

Faults:

Had a rusty driver side tank. Replaced with new one.

Power windows were slow. All it took was silicone spray.

May have to trade or sell for something the wife could drive!Anybody?

General Comments:

This thing is a beast! With American V8 muscle and solid axles front and rear, and a granny low 4 speed, and 4wd, it will not be stopped.

It sounds freakin' awesome with true full length headers, flowing through no cats, and true duals!

It has a 6 inch lift on 32 x 11.50 steel belted mud radials. Its red paint is a bit faded, but, for a weekend truck, who cares?

It has a nice, loud stereo, and the seat is not ripped. It drives good, and has lots of room, both in the cab, and in the bed. It hasn't let me down one time. It isn't a gas miser, but you don't buy these old trucks for fuel mileage - you buy them for POWER!

The only drawback, is my wife,and teenage daughter don't feel comfortable driving it, but, that's what the Honda is for.

Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
