I'll be around Markleeville this weekend, maybe I'll make the drive up there...
Not to get your hopes high, or your blood pumping but I'm going to possibly remind you, or give you another reason to consider it/one. One of the video series which restarted my LOVE for these things was watching (Especially when his YT channel was young) "Overland Bound." His love for the outdoors, and how he took care of his 80 Series..
Sorry, My post is more subjective, as I wish I was more knowledgeable about the 80 series.. Good Luck if you have the time to go check it out.
