    No is the answer.

    Just spent the weekend up at Timothy Lake (up at 3500 feet level on Mt. Hood) and not only took a total of 6 people, but a dog, and every possible item you would need/want/dream of to camp with in comfort and style. Pulled the tent trailer great, tho it did only 50 going up the steep sections, not bad for as much crap and people as it had in it.

    OK, maybe the 406 would have been a bit more fun up those hills............. /forums/images/graemlins/laugh.gif

    That would be cool. I like the Burb for our climate (all the enclosed space for hunting stuff and dog)...........looked seriously at a one ton crew cab with the 454 before I bought this............sweetness from the factory. /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif

    Is this [​IMG] supposed to be a Beaver? I never noticed the Oregon plate looking (with a very good imaganiation) like a beaver but I can see it now. Am I messed up in the head or is that what this picture is supposed to be?

    I find myself in the same dilema as you were a few months ago. What makes it worse is that I found an '89 that is set up pretty much the way I would want it for a decent price. I am thinking about looking at it when I get home this weekend.

    Burb gets same or better mileage..............that 406TPI was thirsty around town. Got 13 mpg with it once going out the gorge on cruise control.............got 14.1 mpg with the Burb going down to the Long Beach peninsula over spring break. This was BEFORE I changed the original O2 sensor (160K miles), put new plugs, cap and rotor (roached) and adjusted timing from 2* retarded to 1* advanced. Now the Burb is a definite improvement over the K5.

    'Course, could have something to do with how the K5 was driven.........power is addictive. /forums/images/graemlins/laugh.gif
