I had a 93 with the 3.0 V6, and had the opposite experience. Extremely reliable truck. 7 Years in the Michigan roads salt bath, and it still looked and ran great.

I learned this after the third time it was towed to the dealer where they kept replacing the main fuel pump but not the bad one.
Also the injectors, fuel injection brain, everything but what was bad.

The last time I got them to do the minimum to get it running barely, and traded it in.
I really hated that truck.
