I think it is hard to say much about these trucks that has not already been said. The 12 valve engine is the attraction, and the rest of the truck is all dependent on the care it has received. Nice ones are hard to find.

One Of The Best Trucks I've Owned — As of now I have over 230,000 miles on the truck and the engine is solid. Have some issues with the tranny right now but the 4 wheel drive with auto lockout hubs is awesome and reliable. This thing will pull a tank!

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: Great and reliable diesel, probably the best out there.

Cons: Electrical system has some odd quirks

Bad Ass!!!!! — This truck had a 8.0ltr V-10, dual Exhaust, 8" lift on 35" tires. This truck had more torque, and Horse power than a Dodge Ram diesel. This truck was a blast to drive, and handled great on and off road. Started every time, and never left me stranded.

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

Pros: She was a sexy beast

Cons: 8mpg's sucked with a 45 gallon tank. $$$

Awesome Truck — This thing drives and pulls Awesome 17 mpg city and 23 mpg Hwy 425hp and 850ft lbs of torque. 35'' Nitto tires fit perfectly on this truck. may need a 4.5'' lift so when the axles articulate when you go through a deep hole in the ground the tires won't rub on the fenders at full lock.

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

Pros: Has a lot of POWER

Cons: Body is a little weak.

Get The 24 Valve Cummings Diesel For Better Milage. Seats Are Not Bucket — The 8.0 litre pulls great even up 7% grade with Saab engine and parts in bed. The slimited slip differential is a must for dirt roads to reach camp grounds. The seats are not the greatest for long trips. I bought the $0 deductable 7 yr 100K mile warenty and that paid off. Had to replace the Cats (2) the Fuel pump and steering gear the first 2 years of ownership. This truck is thirsty. After the fuel pump replacement went from 14 MPG city/hwy to 10 MPG city/hwy. Custom ordered this and watched the build &transport to local dealer. sticker rates for 13,600 pulling as configured. No it not a hemi but who cares about those cute little hemi V-8's

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

Pros: can haul more than the Class 4 hitch is rated

Cons: 8 litre V-10 likes guzzling gas.  Get the cummins

Make Sure You Have A Good Diesel Mechanic To Advise You. — Love the Cummins motor, Love the turning radias, Love the over-all look (especially wiht 35" tires), not much liking the interior (especially the hard seats), don't like the lift pump causing the injection pump to prematurealy wear out, dont like the front brake rotors are more a fit for a 1/2 ton truck. The performances is decent, I have added an aftermarket torque converter and other transmission components as well as a 5" exhaust. Would love to add some other performance products in the future.

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: Cummins makes one hell of a motor.

Cons: Can be expensive if not properly maintained

Pros: smoke/power

Cons: needs a lil more work

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

Pros: POWER POWER POWER

A four door shortbox is a great handling truck package. Quick to turn, easy to navigate parking lots, and rides good. Much better dash design over the 03-05 models. The seats are comfortable. Read More
