"I bought this for pulling a trailer, I was very happy how it pulled. It got around 20 miles per gallon. It was a little cheaper to maintain than the other diesels that I have owned. I have owned all the other diesels from other manufacturers and was happiest with this one. Had good luck with it as far as maintenance on it, mainly did oil changes at regular intervals. No big dollar fix's."
"I have put on quite a few miles and put about 1500 a week on my truck easily. I get about 800 miles to the tank and with cruise control i do 60 and get 23 mpg with a trailer and 8,000lbs of materials on it."
"When I bought this vehicle, I was expecting a rough riding pickup. Once I test drove it I fell in love with the handlng and ride. Smooth like a half ton. With the 5 speed manual and 7.4L gas engine I was pleasantly surprised when I was averaging 15 mpg on the HWY and 12 city. I never have to worry if I can handle a load with this truck. It's built tough and looks good."
