I Was Disappointed That It Only Lasted A Short Time — Another well used truck before I bought it. I hauled horses in a steel box in the bed. I only got about a years used out of this truck, it wouldnt stay running and i replaced a ton of sensors on it.

Pros

Tons of torque to pull anything,

Cons

not very fast

65

In-line Six Cylindre Engine 4.9l 300cu/in, 4x4, Very Tuff — long lasting engine (300 k/miles easy ! hear of 400k/miles done by somme !) easy to fix, low cost parts .. btw ; originals galipers, alternator, p/b, p/s, trany, t-case, drive-shafts ! it's not very fast but have impressive handling even under load ! I bought this truck 15 years ago, I've made 1500miles rides with a caravan every years (that's why I bought this truck, to pull ! and he did it, quite well !) I'm very satisfied !

American Power

Cons

It's old and don't start when it's cold

Once You Get The Engine Rebuilt — For an old truck, it do and almost out perform some of the new ones. Build quality is spot on, solid. Fun factor for me is that it's a four speed transmission and I never use 1st gear. Cost of ownership less than a $1000.

Dad bought it

Cons

poor gas milage

25

Pretty Good For Year — OK good for playing around yet still get the job done Built for a work truck not really a performance machine. 500 dollars and it was mine. Now its worth about 1500 to 2000 Dollars. No fun if you try to show off
