"I love this truck. It has had its share of minor problems, but thats outweighed buy its performance and reliability. Only problems Ive had are a broken starter wire, power locks needed new actuator, odometer occasionaly blinks, had to replace tie rod ends. For 7 years and 117000 miles, thats not bad."
"I've had this truck longer than I've owned ANY truck. I've beaten the heck out of it, and even put it through some real sticky mud, but it always cleans up and gets me home with no problems. 150,000 miles later and the only issue I've had is the California O2 sensor, but that's been out for 6 months, and I'm still driving it.
I even used it as a commuter truck, being a V6 and 2wd got me about 17 mpg, even with a 6" lift and 33" tires.
You need to buy one. Great truck!"
"I've owned mine since 1997 (production date 10/96)and it had 714 miles on it. Even though it's optioned out, l have spent less than $2500. on repairs and maintenance and that has been since it's out of warranty at 3yr./36,000 mi. Oil and filter changes done at the severe manufacture's recommendations. I LOVE my truck like the first day I saw it. It's been through 2 major accidents with minimal damage to truck and no personal injuries. (it had EVERY reason to roll during both accidents-blown out tires and broken rims-and it never flinched...full control to a stop). I wouldn't want any other truck! Performance is still very good considering a small block is powering a 3 ton 4x4. I had the muffelar replaced by a straight pipe a couple years ago, fixed the 1 to 2 shift lag with a micro tuner and it's had oversize 285's on it from day one. A remarkable vehicle."
