Actually I was going to ask what the biggest difference is coming from a solid axle to IFS...

Is that the one that was on craigslist for so long? I think I was looking at that for months....was really surprised it didn't sell more quickly, but then I guess the market has everyone scared again.
Nice ride.

I think one of these in my future...Was driving to Breck this weekend in the 40 with the wife following me up the pass in the 450. She calls me and says, "There is something wrong with the truck, it won't do more than 50mph!" I say there's nothing wrong with it, it's just underpowered. She says, "Barry, this is a Lexus, there is something wrong with it, they wouldn't have designed it to be underpowered."

The 100? IT had been on CL for awhile, we finally looked at it and it as super clean and low miles. We are happy.

Her 80 has been "sold" twice, and I kept putting off the brake job and getting it cleaned and detailed. Finally did all of that this weekend. Very tempted to keep it for my oldest but think I will start her out on something a little smaller, like a 4Runner.
