    Good Reliable Truck Not Perfect But Good — Bought the truck primarily to take our kids to and from school and vacations and has been very reliable on the road. Like the looks, the performance is good for a big truck ( 5.7 liter 2 wheel drive ) worth the money. Gas mileage is pretty good and has a big tank 43 gallons big so at $4.00 a gallon it was a bit expensive to fill up.

    Primary Use: Family transportation

    Pros: Great family car with alot of cargo space. My truck has over 210,000 miles and still runs good.

    Cons: The transmission have had 3 put in the truck and never hauled, towed or anything with it just drove it and it failed 3 times and the front leather seats are all worn out. My wife weighs all of 110 lbs and she is the primary driver and the driver seat is garbage and passenger side is bad also and barely sat in.

    Great For Daily Driver — I would recommend this vehicle to others who need like to haul heavier items and want reliability. It is a great Truck to have and they are fairly cheap to purchase. Parts are cheap enough and they have a great use.

    Primary Use: Commuting to work

    Pros: Reliable and Cheap Vehicle to own.

    Cons: ABS Braking system is flawed.

    Just Is A Stabe Alway Starts — No other SUV can move the amount of stuff and people and still be comfortable. For skiing , camping airport runs, space to load stuff from the hardware store. Power considering it size , towing boats and flat bed trailers are great.

    Pros: Nothing can take the place of this!Room , comfort, storage, four wheel drive, safe

    Cons: Mileage per gallon and quality of the leather seat.

    Tuff Truck With Lots Of Power And Character — I like the braking now that I upgraded the braking system , I basicley have rebuilt the entire truck from inside new damn near everything from suspension to almost every internal part, but it is a labor of love at every new part I always try to either upgrade or custom making my truck a custom job

    Primary Use: Family transportation

    Pros: Great for the money many upgrades avialable

    Cons: Needs alot of expensive labor befriend a mechanic get work dow i batches lol

    Great All Around Family Hauler — A very well made and solid vehicle. Very dependable. Good handling for its size. It does suck gas though. Very comfortable on long trips. 360000 kms. and still looks okay. Recommend this car if you pull a large trailer and have 3 young children in car seats. Also recommend 3/4 ton 4x4 as they have more solid components.

    Pros: Lots of room and power

    Cons: Likes its gas

    Truck — i love having a 7.4 litre and 4 wheel drive. it will pull anything you put behind it and its jet black. its also a retired government truck so it is pretty much solid. filling it up sucks because it has a 60 gallon gas tank. it is really cool. if you have money for gas this is the perfect vehicle for you.

    Pros: power

    Cons: gas mileage

    Texas Cadillac — No payments, fits all my critters comfortably and gets me from point A to point B in unstylish air-conditioned comfort. Can't beat that with a stick.

    Pros: It always cranks, stops on a dime and runs smooth.

    Cons: It's pretty scratched up from runnin' it in the south Texas brush.
