Pros: "Tough truck for homeowner."

Cons: "I had to keep on top of the maintenance."

"I have two of these trucks. One 4wd and one 2wd. Both trucks are 98's and still on the road. Engine seems to be working harder than it is when you get used to operating other types of trucks similar to this. Interior is ok, A/C blower is loud. Maintaining these trucks required me to purchase standard stuff like electrical switches, brake pads, radiator and hoses, inner/outer tie rod, bushings etc. If anything, I'd do it all over again."

Good looking vehicle and fun to drive

"300,000 miles on her! Passed CA.smog test with lower than average emissions,still purrs,always reliable.Just replaced original alternater,front axle boots,front wheel bearings(because I was doin the boots).It runs great,not quite as strong as it used to be,but niether am I after 10 yrs and 150,00 mi!Wish they wouldn't have put cup holders over the stereo,or fuse box by your feet.other than that, it has exceeded all expectations.The A/T has held up pulling a 19ft Bayliner a few times a year, loaded down till leaf springs are almost level,or 4 wheelin.Cant ask for more from a stylish all round truck."

Pros: "quality and gas milage"

Cons: "expensive to buy and the parts are expensive"

"I had reserves about the gas mileage with the larger version of the 1/4 ton. However, at 22 mpg, being older and high mileage, I'm happy with it. It's 4 wheel drive, so, the ride is stiff. The seat is surprisingly comfortable taking most of the shock. I've ridden in many cars that can't do as well! It handles very well, even at high speeds in the corners. This is the stock work version so there are no amenities. With the v6, it has plenty of power for pulling our 18 ft. Boat or a load of lumber with minimal power loss on the hills. Ride height is excellent, however, with the t100, it has an extra wide frame. While this makes it a very stable truck for hauling, it is not what you want off road. There are no vision problems noted with this cab. rear view mirrors get the job done. The bed is 8 ft so there are no issues there. I have not had any mechanical issues with this truck since i bought it a year ago. The stearing wheel and seat have ample adjustment for diferent drivers. All fluids are easily accessed. The spare tire is mounted under the truck, as with all trucks, so it is dificult to get at and sustains damage when using the truck off road. Remove it and throw it in the back bed. Stearing is a little stiff off road with the stock power stearing pump but it's acceptable. The tire jack is small with a narrow base and is difficult to use on soft or unlevel surfaces. All guages and controls are easily accessed. the heat for the interior works great. overall, this vehicle is a thumbs up."

"Owned this truck from new. Very few problems. Bit of a dog on pickup but otherwise runs and drives good. Got about 18-19 MPG on hwy and 16 or so around town. Still wish they made this size truck."
