It's Different Than Most Vehicles — This is a good truck. I've put a lot of work into it and it still has a ways to go but as it is right now it's definitely fast for a truck and it looks good plus it can still haul, tow and get me from point A to B in most terrains.

Pros: 5.2L V8 (with lots of modifications), hard to break, gets lots of stares

Cons: It has to be smogged and it has bad bump steer.
