"I didn't own this truck for too long but while I had it I was pleased with it other then the gas mileage of course when you buy a 1 ton this should not be a surprise. My model had the 7.4 liter diesel turbo in it originally and was replace with the 350. they did the trans at the same time. they put the 4l60 in it instead of the 4l80 and it worked fine of course i did not tow anything heavy with it. I had the single wheel version also i might add but did have the 4.10 rear end in it. I ended up getting between 14 to 16 miles a gallon with it of course that's babying and going 60 or so. I did have over-sized 33" AT's that were 12.5" wide though. the K&N air filter did improve the mileage between 1 and 2 miles a gallon believe it or not."

"This truck was bought as a used vehicle with 135,000 miles. The previous owner did not take care of it as they should have. After working out the bugs, it has been extremely reliable. With dual rear wheels and the 6.5 turbo diesel pulls a 33' camper like its not there. It is a comfortable ride and has gone cross country with no problems. When this one dies I would buy another without hesitation. I expect to have it for years."
