"My family has had this truck for 2 years and cannot be more pleased. We Drive this truck hard. This 1/2 ton is used for everything from hauling tools and lumber to work everyday, to pulling our 4,000lb mud truck to the offroad park, to offroading a little of its own. Given the trucks history (used as a plow truck before we got it) and how we drive it, it is no surprise it brakes down sometimes. We have replaced all the brake lines, radiator, water pump, all the front steering components, all ujoints, both front wheel bearings, heater core, fuel pump and more. The truck is designed to be worked on fairly simple so these repairs have been fairly easy for me and my dad. The interior is great and is an awesome truck to drive. However, there are some down sides. The transmission is weak, The 318 burns a quart of oil every couple weeks, and the paint is horrible. The truck is equipped with tow package (from factory), but has no trans cooler. If you are looking to buy this truck and plan on towing anything... Make sure it has the cooler. The original paint on the hood, roof and bed is peeling and fading and is not pretty. Overall, this truck is awesome for all around use."
