No regrets here. I do miss wheeling the 80, as I had a ton into it, but a lot of that is emotional really.. just a truck, right? But hey, everyone should wheel a built 80 at least once. This thread needs more pics



I actually liked sitting in the 80 better. The seats are a little snugger than the barcaloungers in the 100, and I liked that. And my 80 seats were heated too so non-issue .

Just a different point in life for me, it's more about getting out and less about going big. As has been said the 100 will go everywhere I need it to.

I just parked my 100 in the Alley, going to wash it today before the big snow, so I can drive it around in the snow all shinny and clean.... This is a confession thread right??

I was staring at it in the alley, too.. My neighbors drive down the alley and just look at me like I am nuts..

Here is a pic from this past October...Starting to get a little desert crazy and ready for a desert run..Might have to go in Feb. for a quick fix..



and a few more

Well, I think I'm officially in the 100 market now. Just waiting on the check for the 450. I'm going to miss that truck. I was never fond of the color though...so this time I'm getting more picky. I like the door panels on the LX so much better than the cruisers, but really can't stand the LX cladding on the 100's, so I think those are out this time.

So what's the deal on the wind deflector on 100's? Can it be removed easily, or is it screwed in? I've found a few that don't have them, and though I know they are functional, I kind of like the clean lines w/o it and prefer not having rust magnets drilled in my hatch.

Right on, Barry!

and yes, they can be removed, but they actually do a decent job blowing your rear window clean, you may want to just keep it. And they won't interfere with your roof rack



edit: hey look, 3-wheel Ben's old 100 is still available http://denver.craigslist.org/cto/3475545224.html but seriously, what are you looking for? You going 99 with the rear locker and 4-speed? or all in with the 2003+ with A-Trac, 5 speed & vvti? It's one or the other, IMHO...

Awesome! I've never taken my rear wind deflector off, but I know some do. I've read posts about guys reinstalling them too. Like Nakman said, they do a pretty good job of keeping your window free of dust/dirt.

What color(s) are you looking for?

I had mine off for a couple of days before I decided to reinstall it. It does make a difference.
