Thank you. I put a lot of work into the 80 and it was a great rig. Our needs/wants changed and our camping comfort became more important. We spent a couple of weeks camping in the rain and our future was set.
The 80 had everything going for it. A quick rundown:
1996, factory lockers, 4.88's, slee 4inch lift, 315's, ARB front bumper, slee slider/steps, 4x4labs rear bumper, york oba, dual batteries, and dual fuel tanks (49 gallon total). If you have any questions, let me know and I will answer anything about either platform.
We got tired of bad gas mileage and poor power with the 80 as well. I averaged 12 mpg with the 80 and 17mpg with the truck/camper, plus it doesn't care about elevation.
Now we are much more comfortable, both on the road and while in camp.
