Amazing! — The truck accelerates very well! It has a 5.0 Mustang motor in it and it growls like a beast! This truck scoots across the pavement. Braking and handling are very easy! It's a 23 year old truck, of course it's going to need repairs....though they are fairly simple! The back seats (jumper seats) are very uncomfortable for anyone who isn't tiny or short. This is an amazingly fun truck to drive around and squeal tires in!

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: Everything but the cons!

Cons: Gas gauge doesn't work!  Jumper seats are uncomfortable!

Good Little Beater — nothing special really. the v6 engine lacked power, but it was still a good little truck. real fun to drive and i didnt have to sink to much money into it at all. the electronic 4wd wasn't as reliable as a manuel shift, but it was convienient. good little beater truck.

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: cheap

Cons: old

Review By Actonwoody

Has served us well but a bit underpowered, as it ages there are challenges with the trailer wiring and lighting circuits, doors rusting and an issue in the engine. Not built to be a long time keeper!... Read More
