Sounds like a good decision, even if it isn't what you want right now. Set yourself up for a better situation later in life, and you'll thank yourself.

Nothing wrong with the $2k daily beater. That's what I paid for my Pontiac, and it gets me where I need to be comfortably and cheaper than car payments, even if it doesn't get great mileage by today's standards.

And yeah, the late 90s trucks are nice looking. Hopefully it treats you well. Just put part of what would have been a car payment to savings toward repairs, and you'll be good to go.

Sheís sitting at my parents house now. Got a few little things to fix. Oil leak, brakes are spongy, steering a tad loose, and a MAF and o2 sensor code. But Iím tickled to death. Always wanted one of these trucks. Mileage doesnít bother me as long as itís not god aweful. I put $40 in dads cummins in 3 days...

I think spongy brakes is pretty normal with that generation of truck not really much you can do about it. That is when youíre used to a newer vehicle brakes.

Well. Almost home with the new truck. I love it, but of course found a few glitches after I bought it. Something around the belt is squeaking. Radio don’t pick up. Tag lights out. Ac control backlighting don’t work. And will someone PLEASE tell me how to fix my driver heated seat coming on every three seconds. If I don’t get a reply here I’ll start a thread cause this is insane.

Unplug it under seat. Replace out lights with led in dash and control knobs...

Is there any permanent fix for the seats? Hope itís just bulbs out in the control panel. Kinda odd theyíre all out.

seat heater could be bad switch or bad DDM
tag lights are easy -- 194's
you can replace the lights in your HVAC head like said above, or buy another unit
Radio doesnt pick up -- as in no reception? Just replace the unit
Belt squeaking could be pulleys out of alignment, old belt, etc

Not too worried about the tag lights they’re just blown. Checked last night at the pump. Radio is factory so that’s what I figured it just went bad. Will pick up local stations if I’m in town. The squeak is more like a bearing squeal. Hopefully a pulley bit probably one of my alternators. And the seat switch has a mind of its own. I watched it cycle thru all the setting on the way to work. Do the DDM have to be programmed with a tech 2?

At 12+ years old you can hardly blame the manufacturer
