what makes you feel that this is the case?mjohn7 said:HZJ is a bit more industrail than the HDJ.
MICKruiser said:It's got enough power for our Kootenay roads but seems a little heavy on diesel (@15+ liters/100km). But I really got to put a few more thousand km's on it before I get a feel for the truck.
Have you taken the resonator off yet?? I'm curious if others will experience the same increase in power that I did.
Good lookin rig, BTW - we'll have to get together when I take my next trip down your way.

Whereabouts are you in the Kootenays? My family has a cabin at Gray Creek, and I hope to get up to do some wheeling this spring/summer.
Cheers and congrats on your 77.

brownbear said:Thats awful mileage...time to start looking at why. That converts to 15 us miles per gallon or 18 imp miles per gal.
Not great. Look at injector servicing, brakes dragging, breathing resrtictions, possible gearing too high(high rpm).
So guys, what should get with a 1hz powered truck....I would think mid 20s or high 20s.
Friend of mine has a Tahoe with a 350, works his mileage out to 15 liters per 100kms, but he can tow a huge trailer......
your mileage isn't right. Or why buy a 1hz vehicle. Gas is cheaper than diesel.
Sorry to depress ya, BB
MICKruiser said:I've only had my HZJ77 a couple of weeks but initial impressions are favourable. Maybe not as nice on the highway as the HDJ81 (which I have only driven once) but it's big step up from my old 84 BJ60. Plus I do like that 70's look in a wagon

So far, so good!
Big thanx to Marko from Outback! (and to Wayne and others for some great advice).
