    King Of Burnouts — It accelarates faster than a porshe boxer. Brakes are ok could use an upgrade. Handles ok for its size not exacutaly something that makes sharp turns quick. Had a few replacements, Beds been replaced, bodys been repainted and a brand new 06 rear end has been put in. This car is amazing to drive, just dont take it throuh mud.

    Primary Use: Commuting to work

    Pros: Can do a standstill burnout

    Cons: Its not four wheel drive

    Great Truck. No Other Comes Close. Newer Model Has Cheap Feel And Cheap Drive. — What a truck. Good power. Enough room to seat six. Comfortable for cruising on the highway. Largest bed for any 4dr midsize truck. Plenty of headroom and enough room in the backseat to fit a six-footer. Not too small like Chevy s-10 or Ford ranger. Only V8 in its class. Unlike a full truck you could still whip it around in traffic a park it with ease. Mine had two tone paint, custom subwoofer boxes, and larger tires to fill the wheel wells. I adored that truck.

    Primary Use: Commuting to work

    Pros: Perfect size with lots o' room and power.

    Cons: Seats do not fully recline. 4.7L V8 Chugs gas like a frat boy.
