with my k5 out of commision, i'm looking for a 4x4 with decent good mileage, for long trips and maybe share the dd duties with my pickup. 20mpg would be nice, which pretty much rules out jeeps, from what i've seen. i've been thinking s10 4x4 pu or blazer, or a tacoma, or 1st gen 4runner (sfa and k5-like pop top). have any of you had luck with these or similar 4x4's? how well did the ifs work out in mud or rocks? i don't expect them to be as good offroad as the k5, but, with gas prices, it's a compromise i may have to make. i've seen some older 2dr s10 blazers with the top rear cut off, so they look a lot like tiny k5's. that could be ok. i wonder about rigidity, though.
