Slam It With Some Newer R/t Rims And A 360magnum And You've Got Yourself A Contender... — fun truck, for a first truck it went pretty good for hauling around a full size four wheeler or the sled to camp.Gas mileage was probably around 18-19mpg with the auto tranny and a 3.9liter mag maybe 21mpg on the highway.. I liked the fact that the ball joints are huge on it but hate the price of the tool to change them.

Pros

Power handling off road abilities and smooth ride

Cons

fuel cost although it depends on you drive it and what kind of mods u do

Good — The power it has about 220 horse and the 4*4is good it'll get you where you wanna go it'll tow anything a full size truck will and haul just as much but it only has a six foot bed and it is a pretty comfy ride.

Primary Use: Sport/fun (spirited driving, track racing, off-roading, etc.)

Pros

Extended cab and 4WD

Cons

Engines and Transmissons suck

35

Great Truck For Little Money — It was a great little truck, fun to drive, and the extended cab was really nice when hauling people. It also had storage under the seats for a good place to keep quick reach tools and neccesities. Also the 4WD worked great alway went in easily and got you wherever ya needed to go. Downfall was the transmissions seem to go out on em very quickly and easily I put 4 of em in in the 8 years I had her, also the engines seem to be sluggish and get little power outta them

Pros

power, and hauling power

Cons

gas mileage

45

5.2 5 Spd Pick Up — I like the power, Love the low end torque, but you expect that out of a 5.2. It gets up and goes like it should and stops like it should. I love the handling, just get your foot off the gas in a turn unless you want the back end to kick out. I do hate the interior, blue? not for me too much blue. You tell me of a car that has almost 200,000 miles on it that hasnt needed a repair. The gas mileage isnt horrible but not fantasic, granted you can go buy a new full size and get the same gas mileage that mine has, 15-16 in the city on average and 21-22 on the highway. This is one of those pick ups when you tell it to do something its gonna do it while you keep it in perspective, it aint gonna be no baja racer but it will handle its own when it has to.

Loved This Truck, Would Love To Get Another. — Loved this truck! Amazing quality in a vehicle. Drove it all over. Got about 14-16mpg. Ran like a beast, fast, strong, could pull. Didnt get stuck to easily even with 2wd. Driving this truck was really fun. Great truck, anyone looking at one should buy it.

Very Fun Especially In The Snow — I love this truck for driving in the winter cause i can just throw it into 4 wheel drive and just go. I don't like the 16 mpg part though and that forced me to buy my camaro which gets better gas milage.

Pros

Old school style, manual, RWD

Cons

gutless four banger, rather rusty for age, a beater

95

Blue — *Please note, not actual picture. Truck looked just like that, but blue, hence name.* It's four cylinder engine lacked balls, but the manual tranny helped move things along. Being a regular cab, short box, RWD truck, it was my favorite body style. The interior was nice and simple. For it's age, it had a bit too much rust on it. It had also seen better days, judging by all the dents, scrapes, busted grill, and cracked windshield.
