Decent Fuel mileage (17-19 MPG) (6.5L Diesel)
Suspension parts are durable.
Very smooth ride
Glow plugs need to be replaced very often. (6.5L diesel version)
The doors are junk, and never close properly (requires large amounts of force to close)
Door handles are easily broken (both exterior and interior)"
"My husband bought this truck second hand in 1999. I thas been the most dependable and wonderful truck to own. 5 Speed manual trans and 350 engine has some punch. We are going on 250,000 miles and it is still going strong. Original engine, clutch and trans with minimal modifying. Love it!"
