Great For Its Purpose. Built To Haul Loads/pull Trailers,or Equipment. — More work than I wanted. I Like the longevity of a Diesel engine but not real happy with all the extra money spent on fuel and repairs as I'm not really a mechanic type and unfamiliar with Diesel engines. The current setup leaves a lot to be desired in comfort of driving and handling. But it's a truck for hauling stuff so it gets the job done well in that aspect

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: Plenty of space inside for extra work gear. Hauls good amount of materials even with a full size toolbox in the bed. Great for home repair projects and property upkeep (haul yard waste etc.) looks good. Sounds awesome. Mpg is the same fully loaded or empty. Tows nice  with 5th wheel or hitch under rear bumper for work trailer etc. has air bags so it can handle a pretty stout load no problem

Cons: Pretty lousy m.p.g  it's expensive to upkeep a diesel so far as I can tell. Fairly slow on take off. Turning radius is not good. Rough riding overall. Power isn't great for such a big truck. Gets stuck easily in any soft ground. It's a road hauler built to work not off road.
