    Here she is!

    The stock seat makes me laugh... Floppy mess compared to a real seat with bolsters.

    Rides about 2" higher it seems, should've measured.

    Kings, winch and front skid are only large aftermarket mods things left. Lots of un-wiring and stuff to do.

    I bet you would have got better mpg on 4.10s or 4.30s due to the weight.

    The problem is he would be further in the red for the regear than the worse gas mileage cost him over the 20k miles. Probably would've drove better though.

    And how much is the new build going to cost to get slightly better mileage? :stirthepot:

    I just did the math, and very conservative numbers show saving $300 over the course of 20,000 miles.

    Should have just put up with the bad mpg Brandon and continued to Baja.

    Have you considered buying something with a blown motor and swapping a small diesel in it? I think a diesel is the only way you are going to get the mileage you are after.

    Not sure if a Forester would fit the bill but my buddy gets 35mpg in his. He drives like your great great grandpa in a model T though.

    Also now that you are back give me a shout when you want to climb.

    I agree. A lot better. 3.73 are not good when you consider all the weight.
