I had to replace the stock clutch, around 130,000 miles.
I replaced the original starter after it took a dump.
I replaced the original alternator after I fried the voltage regulator.
I have replaced the clutch master and slave cylinders.
I replaced the rotors and calipers on the front brakes.
I also replaced the transmission at 140,000 miles; my fault, it would have lasted much longer. I went for a drive up in the hills when there was 3 foot of snow; did fine till I went to turn around and got stuck in a 5 foot snow drift. I spent 2 hours playing the first, and reverse game till I got free, and made it home. However I destroyed half the teeth on first gear, and the teeth that were now free to move around seized the trans up 3 months later.
I guess I should be lucky; everyone else I hear talk about these trucks say they get 18-20 mpg. However I get 29.5 mpg on the highway, and 24 mpg in town. Now I don't understand how my truck can be more fuel efficient than the rest. My calculations have been checked 2 times per tank of gas, and I did it for ten tanks in a row.
Handles like a sports car!!!
OK, not really, but close enough for a small truck.
Could be a more comfortable ride. That will be fixed once I get some bucket seats put in the old girl.
Paint is really faded, will be painting sometime next summer.
