    I currently am using my 89 burb for a dialy driver/ work rig. btu with my new job and having to "entertain" customers. I need something nicer. I'd like to keep the burb but to get it where I need it would involve too much $$. I'v been looking at getting one of the following.

    Jeep Grand Cherokee with the 5.2
    Dodge Ram with the diesel
    Ex Cab s-10 Zr2

    Main concerns are:
    gas mileage
    comfort (I do a 3 day trip to eastern Idaho once a month)
    towing ability (kinda rules out the s-10)

    I know I might get some flack for this, but I really like my Toyota Tundra work truck. The ride is nice and the 4.7L has good power. It also averages 15-16mpg daily driving, and 19-20mpg on road trips; even over the mountains.

    And it is made in America!
