    Nice My Dream Vehicle 4x4 Works Great — nothing wrong with it except for the weight issue but a huge gas tank and stock gets better gas mileage than i couldve ever dreamed to have gotten with it and a 42 gallon tank your do the math on the mileage i can get 4x4's great

    Primary Use: Commuting to work

    Pros: rides great plenty of room gets 14mpg in town and 18mpg hwy and i could believe it wen i calculated it. can move concidering the size and weight of it 118k miles and paid 3k got it for a steal no work needed

    Cons: heavy

    The Green Monster!! — I love my truck...hate the gas mileage! On the real though, it just makes sense to have a big vehicle that can haul pretty much anything, including my big ol' family!!!

    Pros: It's a confident vehicle that will go on trails that most cars would never dream of.  Room to spare. Comfort on long road trips for everyone.

    Cons: GAS...this thing knows how to consume fuel, and at these prices, I really have to need to take the truck.  Otherwise, it's all about the hatchback.
