I am starting to look for a 12 valve truck and am debating about a 1st gen or 2nd gen. the truck would be used for towing fairly frequently and also spend a lot of time on rough roads as well as long trips on the highway.
I like the body style of the older trucks but will pick a more solid mechanical truck over looks any day. I despise computers in my vehicles and was wondering if the 2nd generation had any type of computer (i know the engine is not computer controlled). I am not looking to get huge horse power out of the truck so the VE pump is not a problem, but i will likely try to get a little more power out of the truck without having major effects on fuel economy. I have heard bad things about the manual transmissions used in both trucks and was wondering what the general opinion is on which transmission is better. and other pros and cons and opinions on each of the trucks would be appreciated.
the 2nd gen injector pump is mostly mechanic there pretty much the same for the 1 and 2nd gen after 98 they had the vp pump which used electronics is not very reliable u can make it reliable but not like a 12 valve
