"I just turned 200,000 miles on my 1996 3.0 and it is the most reliable vehicle I've ever owned. Replaced the clutch at 170,000 and a few emission components in the last 2 years. Last weekend I hauled two loads of dirt at about 700 lbs each with no problems. Everything is original except for rear leaf springs (the bottom ones cracked n mine) and the normal maintenance items."
"This truck was and still is my first vehicle. I have had no trouble with the motor(2.3L 4cyl.) and at 193,500 miles and still strong I couldn't ask for less. My girlfriends family runs a diary farm and my truck has been used for quite a lot of work. I enjoy watching peoples mouths drop when they see the loads I can haul and the size of the motor. I will never buy any other vehicle."
"This truck does a little more than just get you from point A to point B. This truck with the V6 4.0 has quite a bit of power. It also corners and has great suspension for the serious drivers. The seats could be a tad comfier for the longer drive. But all in all it defiently is a great truck."
