    2.7 5MT here, Love mine. Plus, it gets O K gas mileage, leaving me with more money for fuel required for trips :thumbsup:

    Granted I don't have a 3rd gen but I've had a 2.7 for the past 13 years in two different configurations. 08 2wd auto and currently an 11 4x4 5speed and the engines are solid I have had zero issues with the trucks that I didn't cause myself. I know people are always looking for "power" but the 2.7 is plenty for a DD and in my opinion its great for wheeling and road trips.

    I've had mine for 4 years now as a daily driver and I love it. I have a pedal commander for about 2 years now. Makes a big difference

    I've got a 3rd gen 4 cylinder. My buddy had a 1st and 2nd gen 4 cylinder. The odometer broke on the 1st gen at 360k. His brother then drove it for another few years. That helped with my decision. I don't tow with it, but it's carried a load of wood across a field just fine. It pulled a side by side uphill just fine. It'll do what you need to do, and last a while. That being said, buy a pedal commander.
