This has been an amazing vehicle, and just won't die
Its only clutch replacement was at 190,000 miles.
I replaced the alternator twice, which is kind of normal.
The dome lights work for a little while until the fuse blows, so I don't bother putting bulbs in or using them.
This is the most reliable vehicle I have ever owned.
For this short bed 2WD version, it has carried 1500-1800 pounds many times without complaint and does not look like it's dying like a few other truck brands. Remember I have 230K on this truck so it can definitely take it.
The only time it broke down on the road was when my brother was driving it, so I don't count that as breaking down on me. It was just the alternator and he had to walk home 5 miles.
This truck is well powered with the 4.0 liter engine, is light, and I am always hauling material or stuff on the weekends.
Even though it has always been in the northwest of the United States, it has a little rust in the bed and I've always parked it outside.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
