Summary:

Good

Faults:

Normal wear.

General Comments:

Truck is indestructible for what it is... a cheap, bare bones, small truck. I get 19-23 MPG. Anything that doesn't fit in the small bed hangs over the tailgate nicely.

Handles surprisingly well for a light truck, especially with the right tires. Would recommend going with high quality shocks to avoid rear end bounce and loss of road contact.

Summary:

It takes a lick in and keeps on tick in

Faults:

Not very many things have gone with the truck actually. The only major thing I had to do to the truck was replace both front brake rotors and calipers.

The other thing I had to replace was the battery, but that's it for the things that went wrong with it.

General Comments:

This truck has some power for the stock V6 engine.

I have added a couple of goodies for performance, I have added a dumped 40 series Flowmaster muffler with single inlet/dual outlet and I have added a K&N air filter.

The 4 wheel drive system on it works great it's help me go places a regular vehicle can't go.
