My sentiments exactly. :-X22
1-2 drops of oil after driving 100 miles is not enough to bother with, in my opinion. I would just check the oil frequently.

I would be worried that the engine's had too much damage to justify paying a shop to replace the gaskets. You could spend hundreds doing it just to have it not run right and give out on you. My 2...

It is beautiful, & I too wish mine was that nice. 80k miles is very low!

Were you going to be using a trailer, or will the entire load fit in the bed? I'm thinking 1500 lb. might be too much. The 4.0 won't have any problems pulling it all. I'd be worried most about the...

I've heard that, too. Experience, however, seems a bit different. Everyone I've talked to with a cap/camper shell tells me it makes basically no difference on the fuel economy. That's consistent...
