It's not built for hauling a load.
I tried to use mine as a truck - and regret it after seeing what it did to the leaf springs.
they aren't U- shaped anymore, more like a W, with a twist, twisted inward at the forward end.

Truth. My title for my 97 says "station wagon." But you can always upgrade to hd springs and increase load capacity somewhat. Will it ever be a pick up truck? Not likely.

Does anyone else's "low fuel" light come on super early? I usually drive about 100 miles after the light comes on and it still only takes 16 or 17 gallons. Just seems kinda odd to me lol

My light must be broken because I've ran it down to 1 gallon before with no warning other than my UltragaugeEM

Tell me more about that gauge. I think my factory sending unit went bad recently. Ive been setting the trip odo so i hve an idea of when to fuel up lol. Which btw ive been getting around 15.5 mpg. But thats probably because ive been towing alot less than normal.
