decent truck for 2 people

I'm not a fan of the gas mileage or the interior of the truck the motor is one of the best 4.9L you could ask for with enough power to back it up, the back seat could have had a half door toeaaae passengers getting in and out but over all its a good truck

Spectacular

I love the versatility and the lifespan of the truck. 18 years and going strong. The paint is great and the truck has little to no rust despite some minor damage. I use this truck as a daily driver and also as my vehicle for recreations. It has towed many things that the competitors trucks can't. It has helped to build many bonfires to light the way for Pappa Noel on Christmas Eve.
