Kinda Dead in here... Lets hear it! What Do You like the most about it?

I like the rugged good looks.

The dang thing just LOOKS mean! And The ride and lack of *bling* makes you feel like you are driving a real truck!
Also there are not alot of real clean ones around anymore!

Kind of wish I had a nice 1st gen so I could let you know what I like about it most. This should be interesting to hear what everyone has to say

I liked the sound of mine. The VE and P-Pumps don't sound exactly the same straight piped. The VE just sounds, more rugged, and slow. But the slow part can be addressed. I miss mine

I love arriving at work with coffee down my tee shirt from the rough ride, I love how it lites up with the first turn of the key, no matter what the temperature is outside, I love how I can fix it myself, no electronics, I love the mileage, I get 28 mpg on the hi-way (cdn gallon 4.55 liters) I like the "BEEFY" aerodynamics of the front end, as aerodynamic as a brick wall, I love the NP205 bullet proof cast iron "hernia" giving transfer case, however, when I sit in my wifes GMC Sierra, I sure enjoy the smooth ride and how quiet it is. But as I am getting older, my 91 is getting quieter, I now have 319,000 kilometers on her now, and it is starting to show it's age, but all it needs is a new paint job and some work done to the bench seat. It'll probably outlast me.

I like how they look like a leftover relic from the 70's and the how they are hard to find in great shape, the rarity factor. There's a bazillion 3rd gens and half a million 2nd gens running around in my town.
