It hauls lumber, it hauls butt. What more do you need?

If you need 4 doors, get a 2002 or 2003 Harley.

It's a great truck, like it was said... just drive one, you'll fall in love with it.

1st or 2nd Gen?
Just hop in & find a hill, a straight run / stop, and a cloverleaf. No more to be said.

The bad part with a newer one is that the battle for more power makes a "new" one pretty slow in few years. Look at the poor guys who rushed and bought the new second generation in '99 and 2000. All of a sudden Ford throws in S/C and guys are bailing out of them. But from a styling and handling perspective there is not a better truck.

what he said! not just the power, but everything. brakes handling, interior. I'll throw in one con. winter driving is kind of sketchy. i know some people do it, but with that tight limited slip and those tires.... yikes. i never did. besides it's just to nice to get all dirty and nasty in the snow.
