    Yep. Hypermiling my 80 is loads of fun. To get 2mpg is 20% fuel savings, and it's about $5/gal here in Canada.

    If mpg is a primary concern then buy the 5sp 100 or LX470.

    My 80 gets 10mpg in city traffic. 12mpg in city with no traffic. 14-16mpg freeway.

    On 35s with stock gearing. Fairly light...

    Yes. I definitely noticed the difference when going from stock 32s to my 35s. Tire weight and leverage both conspire to increase braking effort, stopping distances, and pucker factor in emergency...

  12. How important is a winch in deep sand conditions?

    Bigger tires, with tread optimized for sand. Keep the truck as light as possible.

    My experience is with 80-series cruisers. Two very similar trucks. Buddy's truck had 33x10.5 and mine had 35x12.5...

    I hope you used genuine parts for the front axle shafts. Some of the aftermarket units are junk. If they weren't clicking, my personal preference is to clean and lube, then replace the boots.

    Other than towing, its an awesome vehicle. If you can put up with towing at a snails pace, go for it. If you actually need more ooomph, the 96-97 can accommodate a TRD supercharger.
