Tru dat!



And best mileage I've ever seen from a 01-04 has been about 22.. and that's mostly highway, no big loads. More typical is mid teens... and if you mod them and/or load them up, low teens. I can base that on experience: I've owned two (02 extended cab and 01 DC), my brother owned one (02 DC), and my dad owns one (01 Extended) and I've put some saddle time in each of them, including multiple road trips.

Yeah, I think I have decided to sell my 60 to by a truck, whether that be a tundra,tacoma or older 4cyl pickup is yet to be seen. Then that will leave me with the 80 to start building and moding. All in favor say I. I would love to keep both cruisers and then get a truck but i think the wife would kill me.

Why not keep the 60? It's already built and ready to go. The 80 with no magic button would make me hesitate to build it.

I love the 60 all except the carb,leaf spring set up. My wife wont even wheel with me in it anymore because she says it stinks and and its uncomfortable, which naturally means I love it. The 80 on the other hand is comfortable and it smells good.

If wheeling is about your family, you can't beat an 80/100 (depending on the wheeling you do).

80's are on the market again due to gas prices. Bad time to sell any of these pigs.

another vote for a utility trailer for house chores. I have an old M101a that I use for just that.

How does the m101a hold up when it comes to weight? If I want to get a yard of river rock put in the back is it going to handle the weight well?

I just put 1.25 tons of river rock in my Toyota pickup bed trailer. It did the job. I'm sure the M101 would do better.

Its rated at 1500lbs offroad and 2200lbs HWY payload. Its 1350lbs empty.

I've exceeded it many times with no issue. Just picked up a cubic yard of wet top soil last weekend. Probably could have put another yard in but it would have been on the bump stops if I did. Pictures of a load of firewood. That was towed offroad 10 miles at least. Those rounds of wood easy averaged 60lbs+ each. Again no issue. They are great trailers if you don't care about how heavy they are
