"The truck was bought from an individual about 10yrs ago with 40K miles. It is now on its 3rd hundred thousand. Motor oil is still fresh amber 1,000 miles after a change. None needed between changes. It has dragged boats twice its size, been stuck in mud numerous time, jumped a ditch and bent the frame, had the hood crushed and windshield and grill smashed by a ice loaded falling tree. It has taken two sons through their teens into and out of college. And still drives like a Caddy on the interstate, in the lower 20's mpg. It's easy on tires, the Bilstein shocks on front were all it needed. We ALL love the old truck."
"This is a great truck. It can pull a trailer with it's little v6. It has pulled many trucks twice it's size out of the mud. Downfall is the bench seats are very uncomfortable, but bearable. I have wrecked my once into a 15 ft ditch then drove it home after someone pulled me out. This truck could get beat up and keep on going. Plus side is they usually last past 250,000 miles."
