ExPo 80 Series Registry

#1
I know this thread exists on one of our other favorite sites, but the 80 series that are generally on this site are more in tune to the overland/expedition flavor that we all love. Like most, I never get tired of looking at pics of 80 series, so why not have them all in one thread. Your pictures and post will help to inspire others and act as a quick reference to your build. As a minimum guideline for our posts, let's include:

1. Year, model, color, etc:
2. Name of owner/screen name:
3. How long have you owned your 80 series? Is this your first?
4. Mileage at date of purchase and present mileage:
5. Your favorite mods... If any:
6. How your 80 is used... ie. DD, family adventure, overland travel, etc.:
7. Your 3 favorite photos (keep them updated):
8. Link to your build thread:
