This Is A Totally Cool Ride That Is Always A Blast To Drive! — I am very impressed with the Extreme I would buy another one any day. My wife says she wants me to build her one so that is saying something. But of course she wants one for the fuel Mileage.26+ MPG and Very Reliable truck.

Great Little Truck. — For a truck has pretty damn good handling and acceleration. Braking is so so could use an upgrade. Gas mileage is not so good get around 18 when i drive normal and about 25 when im driving like a grandma thats 50/50 city/highway

Pros

Hauls ass

Cons

Eats tires.....

Chevy S-10 — I'm not sure if i have the right model here, but it's a 3 door, with AWD, and a shortbed, mind you I don't know about the widestance part. The 4.3 vortec has lots of balls. the tranny is geared more for towing, but if you put your foot down it can really haul ass. I've heard its governed at 160 km/h, but i wouldnt want to do much more that 115 - 120 on stock suspension and stearing, feels reall loose at higher speeds. Its a fun truck to drive mind you, with the massive power plant relative to the weight of this little truck. With the option to go in either RWD or AWD you can really have some good times around corners and round-abouts. again the transmission limits burnouts, unless thats just a sign that the truck needs a tune-up, not sure really. Haven't check. Dad wont let me really get at his baby ;) The truck itself seems pretty solid, and its not like its going to fall apart on the road. It's a well buit truck. Overall, its a great little truck, and I would love to actually own one.

Nice Off Road And Utility Vehicle. — The engine on this vehicle is great very reliable. The brakes are a weak point and the suspension wears out quickly. The interior is well laid out just a little on the small side. Is very prone to rust in the usual spots on third door, fender wells and cab corners.

Primary Use: Utility (towing boats, transporting cargo, etc.)

Pros

It was sweet on the eyes.

Cons

Its a discontinued lemon, meaning they dont make them anymore. If you want a reliable compact pickup try a Ford Ranger.

Idk — It was a top of the line stepside, extended cab S-10. Included the leather seats and bose premium sound system it was just a cluncker from the assembly line. It only had about 30 k on it when i sold it because i was tired of dumping money into it! Im a die hard FORD man now!

S10 Pickup — Lack of power on take off and the constant rattles from interior pieces. I have had a few times it had to go in the shop but nothing serious. I get 25mpg hwy and I do all the maintenance myself. It is fun if you are into trucks and modifying. Not for speed freaks. Top speed limited to 93 mph
