Everything you need in a truck.
December 14, 2018
I have owned this truck for 9 months now. Bought it with 157,000 miles and now has 164,000. I haven't had any issues with the truck - although the CARFAX was minimal, It seems to have been properly maintained. I have hauled 14-foot logs in the bed (probably 2200-2300lbs total) and the truck handled as it should. This truck it literally everything I need. I can fit the family with the dog, pack all our camping gear and everything stays dry!
Expect to get 13-14MPG city and around 20MPG highway if you drive sensibly. 65MPH on the highway on cruise control and you'll get 21MPG all day. The versatility and capability of this truck outweighs the poor gas mileage.
Overall, if you find a clean one WITHOUT CLADDING, jump on it. It's worth sorting out any issues you have with electrical/mechanical issues to enjoy a sweet ride that can do just about anything.
