Groovy groovy funky
Wrong? Parts wear out on a vehicle that is designed old school and is meant to be treated old school! I live in Michigan, which has vicious salt rust. This just doesn't count toward the quality of the truck's construction. I'm a mister "craftwrench" type, so I fix anything that strays from original usefulness. Nothing special has gone wrong, just destruction of parts from rust. It's an old-fashioned design, which keeps parts relatively cheap. It's rugged and fun, and I'm looking for a 4WD (without rust) to do some Frankensteining on, and make a cool truck. It's a heavy-duty drive train, and it's tough. A truck made for custom-crafters like me!
From a bottom-line point-of-view, I've always heard (like many other makes) that the smaller motor (2L) is disappointing. Duh. The 2.6, however, has been lovely. If a 2.6 will fit a 2.o chassis, then get an upgrade. Does anyone know of a club for these vehicles? I'd like to chat with experienced persons. Classic styling, tough gearing, and RELATIVELY TOUGH, not considering rust or abuse (stop trying to use a mini as a full-size pickup, dummies!)
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
