Auto Trans?
Has been known to be a weak link in these trucks.

I like my 5 speed :D.
In fact, i rather like the whole truck.

The gas engines have a problem with blown plenum gaskets, once it's properly fixed the engines are damn near bulletproof. The trannies are the weak link, if the truck isn't equiped with the tow package with aux cooler, put one on there and keep it serviced regularly and you should be ok. i have a '98 with almost 98k miles on it with the tow package and the trans still works fine. I've changed the fluid once and have no clue if it was ever done before i bought it at 75k miles 3 yrs ago. 4 wheel drive system still works great, only problem is the front axle seals tend to wear out and leak and they're a b**** to replace. Right now i love my truck except the crappy steering, i've been fixing the worn out and defective parts in that and almost have it perfect. Thing runs great and looks good (minus the rust).
