Neat Little Trucks — I like these little trucks I built this one with a hot rod 4.3 V-6 with a 5 speed. Upgrades to suspension,brakes,rear differential, 8in corvette wheels. They sell for low money to get a decent truck to make a awesome hot rod.

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

Pros: Low cost to get these small trucks but you can make a awesome hot rod

Cons: 2.5 4 cylinder lol

Nice! — Very nice acceleration especially with the 5 speed, 4wd works pretty well most of the time, very fun truck to drive but suspension is a little rough, the fun part is the truck and I were born on the same year and month!

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

Pros: Love my truck

Cons: Not for people who want a nice quiet ride

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

Pros: it ran

Cons: rusted out

I Love You Frank! — I love my truck. It's comfortable, it's lasted through many tough years with me. It's reliable, easy to fix and I like what happens when I hit the gas pedal. Unfortunately, it's falling apart now because i'm a terrible owner =[

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: FUN!

Cons: It's a 4.3 V6 so no gas mileage.

Cheap Truck — I like this truck because it is cheap and gets good mileage too. It has a cap on the back end so i can carry stuff without it getting wet. I crank up the music and just drive it around.

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

Pros: good mileage

Cons: paint is peeling some, some rust around wheels
