"Owned this truck for 9 years. Bought with 100,000 mi, now has 190,000. Drives great, good noise level for a truck of its day, excellent ride and handling - especially considering its a 4x4. Comfortable, simple straightforward instruments and controls, all clearly labeled. Supercab provides plenty of storage space. Factory automatic front hubs were unreliable, switched to manual. Plenty of power with the 4.0 V-6, but it does like its gas, then again the truck weighs in at a little over 4,000 lb. This one was Ziebarted when new, has no rust. Oil changes are on Mobil 1 10W30 extended drain @ 15,000 mi intervals, only uses 1 quart between changes.
Repairs are on par or a little better than average for a vehicle of this age and mileage. We just went through several days of -14°F at night, high of 0° F days, starts right up. In hot weather the 94 and earlier 4.0's had a fuel vaporizing (like vapor lock), runs rough on a hot start in the summer, smooths out quickly. All in all one of the best vehicles I have owned in my 40 some years over ownerships. Has Century cap, one of the better brands, would also recommend that brand."
