I have been researching getting a LC for a little while now. I love the 60/62 but I think I want something a little newer and more reliable. I would like to use it as a expedition type vehicle to drive cross country and do camping, climbing, biking and kayaking. I would like to do some light to medium wheeling in it as well but nothing to extreme. I need it to be good enough on the highway that I could hop in it and drive to Alaska if I want. I plan on keeping the mods simple, tires, OME suspension bumpers and lockers if I can, maybe a winch if needed. I don’t need creature comforts but I would like it to be decent on the highway. You know, cruise along at 75-80 and not have to fight with it to keep it on the road. Is that possible with a 80? But my biggest concern ist that the newest 80 is a 1997. Do you guys feel that these are getting to old to give the long distance reliability I want? I would like to keep this for about 10 years. By then it would be 23 years old. Would you trust a truck like that for long range cruising? I like the 80 much better than the 100, but I realize they are starting to get up there in age. What do you think about using one for cross country trips and the sort?
