This is my beater vehicle, I picked up in December of 2012. I only bought it for the extra "off-road" bumper that came with it. However, I love driving this 5 speed around and found that I can get pretty decent mileage out of her. My average mileage would be better, however I routinely use this to pull a trailer.
none so far
Removal of most of the 4wd system.
Several other small mods.
