Without any indication, front end of vehicle locked up, causing consumer to lose control of vehicle. Dealer was contacted, and stated that subframe needed to be replaced. The front differential was torqued sideways and broken apart, causing the frame to have 2 breaks, this caused the front to lock up, also prior to this consumer complained of a delay between the forward and reverse, when a bump was felt when accelerating, consumer also heard a clunk noise, dealer drained and replaced the transfer case fluid twice. The engine sputters in 4 wheel low and there is a whine noise or pulley noise from the engine. The front seat arm rest fell off. The left front daytime lamp was full of water due to the assembly being improperly sealed at the factory. The brakes pulsated and pedal felt soft, dealer stated the right rear caliper was sticking and the front and rear rotors were corroded badly, causing the brake pads to wear. The electric brake was inoperable, dealer installed a new plug, the wiring harness was badly damaged. The power windows were inoperable. The left door creaks due to front door link being loose. Consumer was informed that he was supposed to sign a waiver because of the plow being placed onto the extended cab, this was because the installation was not recommended, however the consumer was never informed of this until after the installation and the problems with the vehicle.

I was driving at about 30mph, aloud humming noise started, and my ABS light came on.I turned off the ignition, but the noise continued.I found the humming noise coming from under the truck, on the drivers side, under door area.there is a black"box" with 2 electrical plugs.it was necessary to pull one of the plugs to get the humming to stop.but now my ABS light and my brake lights are on all the time on dash.took the truck to original dealership, and was told that the ABS pump and module both went bad.I was told that the cost to repairs would be $1685.66.I just can't believe that both parts went bad.the truck is only 2 years old.now I am driving with my truck in this condition, because I don't have enough available cash on hand to have the repairs done.(2) both drivers side and passenger side windows rattle when they are down.it doesn't matter how far down the windows are.I'm waiting for them to break.it sounds as if they are ready to fall off the track.this has been a problem since I purchased the truck.I told the dealer about it, but nothing was ever done to correct the problem.(3)also, on the front passenger door, there is an air leak when I am driving, again told dealer, and nothing was done.(4)on the third door on right side, rear, water leaks in around glass.took it back to dealer, & was told they couldn't find the reason for the water leak.still continues to leak, when it rains or I wash the truck.another problem I have is with the truck hydroplaneing in the rain.this has also been going on since I purchased truck new in Feb.1999.lost total control on one occasion.truck went completely sideways on roadway.I was traveling at about 50mph.,in a 60mph zone.I was in traffic at the time, the other vehicles around me realzed the situation, and backed off giving me room.when I finally regained control, I pulled off of the highway.I was very badly shaken from the experience (tiresize: P265-75R16)( dot number: Tire size: P265-75R16 )
