Good Suv For The Money. — I paid $450 bucks for this thing. It was a good truck for the price. It had been ragged out. Had ropes for door handles and it sounded like crap. But it started right up and drove straight down the road.

Pos — Terrible mileage but a great vehicle to be in if your in an accident...she also crawls like you wouldnt believe. pretty cheap to repair compared to a beamer but requires a ton more repairs then a newer vehicle would.

Pros

One of those true workhorse vehicles that everyone should own, everyone needs at one point or another, and everyone else wants to bug you to use it for them.

Cons

It survived everything but a 35+ mph blow from behind by a full-size Dodge Ram. The photos I've uploaded are shots of the aftermath: Bent frame, twisted down tow hitch, and the force of the impact pushed the driver's seat back into recliner mode.

1985 Gmc Jimmy 6.2l Diesel — I seriously miss this truck, and if it weren't for the idiot that hit me back around 2000 bending the frame we'd probably still have the ol' warhorse. This truck went with my dad and I on damn near every Boy Scout outing I went on, and was my first vehicle. I loved revving the motor and gagging my buddies with the thick black diesel smoke. The vehicle lasted through 250000 miles, one fire-destroyed transmission (we quite literally got "Stuck in Lodi"), a transmission with a blown second gear, a destroyed rear gears, and most impressive of all, survived having me for an owner. It was my first ride, and I still miss it.
