Love This Truck — This is a great great truck. It is backyard mechanic friendly, where most anyone can do the repairs . it loves to haul a load or pull your boat. I owned one for 4 years and really like it. Would not be shy to buy again.

The Green Machine — I feel safe driving this truck. I have custom seats that are very comfortable. Good gas mileage. I would like to remove that chip. Repairs does not cost too much. I just love my truck. Great to pull my Boats, SeaDoos and trailers.

Bigred — Great truck! I don't think they make them like this anymore. 350 V8, open-element KN Filter, TB Spacer, Racing Fuel Pressure Regulator, Flowmaster, Hypertech, makes it a lot of fun to drive and surprises a lot of wanna be "racers" at the stoplights. Can't believe the truck is going on 17 years old with never a real issues - just change the oil, brake pads, ect and it keeps going like the day we drove it off the lot.

Reliable Pick-up — Love my truck. Good power and strong when in the snow and the 4WD is engaged. Comfortable even on longer drives and not too bad on gas when driving on the highway. Body is lasting and it can take a beating.

Best Vehicle I Ever Owned — Was my fathers truck before it was mine, he used it as his daily driver and for hauling construction supplies on and off the jobsite. He owned it for 14 years, then passed on to me when he got a new vehicle. I used it for the same purpose. Best truck I ever drove; no lift, but I felt like I was sitting on top of the world when I drove her. I had no complaints about this truck, except the cost it took to maintain it towards the end of its life. A lifetime of corrosion due to salt and hard winters got the best of it, causing the transmission to split in half! I didn't have the money to repair it, otherwise I would have. I dearly miss this truck, and would buy another one just like it in a heartbeat.

Pros

LOVE the extended cab!  I'll never go back to a regular cab.  

Cons

Mileage, parking it.  It's pretty damn large.

My Truck — With the 350, (5.7 Lfor you metric types), there is plenty of power. I'm a little concerned as such a big truck only has 5 bolt wheels! It's needed regular maintenance items such as brakes, a water pump, and some gasket re-sealing, exhaust system, but nothing out of the ordinary for something that's 16 years old. I did have to have leaking engine oil cooler lines TWICE! Wasn't happy about that, but must be how they're made. No rust as of yet, looks good, no real rattles or squeaks. Traction sucks, but all the weight's on the front, and also the awesome power just bakes the tires, heh, heh! Gas mileage sucks in town, at about 12 mpg. It gets better on the highway at about 20 mpg. Don't ask me what that is in litres per 100 kilometers, it has as much meaning to me as saying it gets X number of pussy cats per kilopascal.

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