    That's precisely what keeps me away from it, size and gas mileage. I might as well get a full size.

    I would totally be interested in an actual compact 4x4 with decent gas mileage . I had an S-10 2WD that I on,he got rid of when I had kids, couldn’t really fit a car seat in there, but that use-case is long gone

    Old O2 sensors, even if not throwing a code, can decrease fuel economy, Old CATS, too. Try using fuel injector cleaner in every fuel up for a while. Take off air intake and try to look at your throttle body for dirt and gunk. Spray with carb...

    I think the elevation changes play a big part in that, as well as the wind across AZ. I've taken that route in the LC and the only way I got decent mileage was dropping to 70 like you did, and disabling the cruise control on elevation changes.

    So finally got around to finishing out the bumper and center fill piece and after a little paint applied in my paint booth (aka back yard) they were ready for install. Ended up looking ok with the expanded metal imo, and at least it will be...

    Tried to get the bumper finished out last night and of course I ran out of wire. So I jumped on putting new torsion bars in. They went in pretty easy. Not sure if this is a common trick or not, but when I installed them I barely had the tire...

    I remember looking at it at one point, and to run an AC throughout the day, you really need to be connected to 30amp service, or leave a generator running all day. Unless there is some ultra-efficient new AC setup, it won't run off the battery...

    My guess, you are about to lose a coil pack. Check for engine codes & the air filter like others have said. The coil pack going out can cause misfires, but it has to exceed a certain number of the in a minute before the check engine light comes on

    I bought Kings and love them. Going on 6 years old and probably need a rebuild but the seals are still holding. Yeah, they are noisier than Day 1 but I can hit 85mph on dirt roads and still be in control, no fading. Last I checked, Icons are...
