    whats funny is it was a XLT Lariat, loaded with every option for the 92 MY, tape deck, capt chairs 4.10 gears :D...drove for 10.5 years. wife bought it new for me while i was on deployment...she tricked me to go look at new trucks when i came home:innocent
    OBS is imo fantastic, the supercab long bed 4x4,s screamed for huge tires
    14 mpg empty

    worst thing i ever did to it was installing a banks sidewinder turbo, power was great. but the truck was never the same.:(

    want a laugh about reliability
    120,000 ish miles
    one injection pump (when they switched over to low sulphur fuel)
    one fuse link for glow plugs
    one driver door light switch
    one a/c condensor (my fault)
    one set of new injectors because i got worried at 100k miles

    and ONE set of front brakes at around 85,000 miles

    it was a pretty darn good truck.
    I think the banks set up really tasked the engine, i already had the inj pump turned up a bit. it developed a HARSH 1-2 shift and i never liked the way the exhuast would settle and periodically rub the body for an ear throbbing noise

    I agree Robert.. Darn good truck.. but the ATS asked a bit more than the engine wanted to give up. 4:10's but with an 11' Lance on.. and the boat it tow.. had to put a Gear-Vendor on it.. and drive it in 4th under.. :rolleyes:

    Sold it with 200+K on it, multiple Alternators (usta carry a spare Alt), 1 set of GP's, 2 fuel (mech) pumps, 2 Vac (mech) pumps. OEM brakes & clutch though.

    Often thought an Inter-Cooler would have done the trick, but the 2K is doing the deed Very, Very Well theze dayz... @ the cost of a new DRW.. here in Caly anywayz.
