Not to contradict the other posts, But we owned four of those trucks between all my friends. My dad's used to smoke for about 10 minutes after you started it. Didn't matter what the weather was everytime it used to smoke, enough to block the road! Mine smoked a little bit at startup but once warm it stopped. I fixed mine by adjusting the valves.(Not something that is easy to do).
Now both my brothers trucks. They ran fine no troubles at all and I would have to say the average mileage (dad's was the lowest at 76000) was about 140000.
