well going from a lima 2.3L the 3.0 is sooo much better on take off, you people who started out on 3.0s know nothing...

heres the kicker!


the 3.0 will last 3 maybe 4 hundredthousand miles more then the 4.0 will!

and BTW the newer ones do put out more torque then the older ones so if you havent drove a 04 or newer 3.0 dont bash it!

It's not that the 3.0 is a slow truck. It's just not fast by any means either. When I need to pass someone I have no problem doing it. But I guess by today's standards maybe it is considered slow with everyone coming out with their 200+ hp engines. I know, I just contradicted myself.

you dont!?!? There has been countless times when im driving down a single lane, broken yellow line, highway (65 speed limit) sitting behind some moron going 50. I have to wait until i can see a good 2 miles in th other direction before i even try and attempt to pass.

Pft i can think of 4 near collisions off the top of my head caused attempting to pass by my truck being so fing slow....

oh and its more like their 250+ hp v6 engines...

I can pass easy... I just don't pass much, I'm not in that big of hurry, I hate people that weave thru traffic, the other day some guy was on my A** on a 4-lane in his new toyota taco... I got into the left to pass a semi well he tried to beat me around the semi so I took off to block him in... I eventually let him go, then he almost rear ended someone...

Im not implying driving like an as$hole, i was making refrence to a 2 lane highway and trying to pass.

I too enjoy watching for the jackass drivers in my rear view mirror and dicking with them... especially when its some civic or other small car who cant do crap to a truck
