My truck needed a lot of repair for whatever reason but not really any more than my 60 does. It was fairly reliable but needed constant things done to it. Had 52,000 miles when I got it. It was way easier to get things done on it than my 60 is. Was a different time/situation though. Parts for the truck were readily available whereas it can be a bit of a challenge to source them quickly for the 60 these days. So not apples to apples comparison. The truck was maybe slightly more reliable than the 60 because of the FI versus carb, but the 60 is way easier to work on than the truck ever was. Overall as far as reliability though, my experience was both were pretty similar. Old trucks need work regardless of who made them not sure there is any compelling reason to choose one or the other there. Maybe aftermarket support for the truck would be slightly better? But the aftermarket is getting better and better every day for the 60 series. For my frame the truck was pretty small though. I can tell you I kick myself daily for selling that truck.
