Some of y'all get pissy when someone's opinion doesn't match yours.
Since we're at it, I bought an extremely clean, but very rolled over 95 4wd dodge at auction, used the engine tranny and t case to build my f350 and parted out the rest. Being a clean truck, I had lots of interest in the rest of the pieces. 2 of the buyers I'd met, each had both a 2nd gen and a 3rd gen truck, both were unloading the 3rd gen truck, one lemmon law, one just wanting rid of it, both were basically restoring the 2nd gen to keep it in service.
I've had enough 1st hand conversations like that that I keep them at arms length. About '14 or '15, maybe a little earlier, they seemed to really be sorted out. I'm watching them, maybe I'll consider picking one up in a few years. And I'll come in here and ask for opinions
