Good Reliable Truck
Nice size truck for use on my farm. Putting a plow on it so it can be used to plow my driveway. Body is a nice style.
It was a great truck for a long time
This truck served me well through college and in the beginnings of my career. This truck saw many camp fires, moves, boat hauls and cruises through the mountains. The weight of the frame made it steady on the road; the wide but short cab made the ride smooth and the simplicity of the design made it a strong vehicle but easy to drive. The only, single down-side was the rear-wheel drive in Colorado winters (4X4 would be better). Being a work horse with acceleration and power it was great driving through the mountains on camping trips and on highways but it is not ideal for narrow/downtown city streets. The bench seat is comfortable and classic and the simplicity of the interior is attractive for a tough vehicle like this. An additional great feature is the height of the cab making it easy to get in and out (without running boards) giving the driver an elevated view but not being massively tall and overpowering. The single cab also offers the driver great visibility in blind spots for such a large truck. Maintenance and parts were never outrageously expensive and mechanics find this vehicle easy to work on. I hope this review was helpful. I am a big fan of MY truck and I will be sad to sell it.
