Still cool looking after all these years
5 Speed transmission was popping out of 5th gear at about 210,000.
The cylinder heads are sensitive to overheating and cracking. Keep them cool.
The EGR systems can carbonize the recirculating travel tubes.
The electricals can have issues if parked outside a lot in severe changing climates.
Not a lot of room in the driver and passenger compartment.
Needs after market headers production for the uneven exhaust port head design. No one makes them.
I can pull our 85 HP boat with the truck, and it does very well with over 250k miles.
The style is still very appealing, even after so many years.
Tires last a long time on the truck; be sure you buy an oversized tire update.
Very good gas mileage.
Repairs are very simple because of the allowable space around everything, especially the engine compartment.
Comfortable if you remove the ridiculous bench seat that comes from the factory. It actually seems to make you lean forward instead of reclining. Replaced with IROC buckets, which made a huge difference.
There is a large amount of information online to research for just about anything you would like to do to the truck.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
