"I had my 2000 since new, so it's seven years old with 100k. I've beaten and abused it and get second gear every chance I get. The first week I had it I took it mudding and trail riding. Tore the skid plate off of it.
I drive it everyday to work and play on the weekends. There more expensive but they are worth it. It's paid for now and I wont get rid of it.
The paint is starting to fade and it has some dings and scratches. I maintain it and change the oil every 3000 miles rather it needs it or not.
The only regret I have is leasing it instead of buying it through my bank "dumb kid" and that I didn't get the v6. Well I save some at the pump.
The only major thing I done to it was getting some BFG all terrains."
"The only negative that I would ever give this little pickup is the fact that it rides rough. That is to be expected when you get a 1/2 ton rating in a little truck. You can't have a smooth ride and stiff enough suspension to pack the load."
