see, this is what makes me mad. i've heard about people towing with the 6.5 TD loaded up getting 13-14 mpg, but i towed my Jeep up to school and only got 11.5...over 350 miles. made me kinda mad.

what gears does it have, and how fast do you tow at?

3.73 gears towing between 60 and 70...usually cruise set at 65. It does have 285/55/r16 tires on it though, so with spedo error your true speed is about 71, but as far as the truck is concerned, 65. I get the same mileage with my 6.5L TD 1/2 ton 4x4 blazer, but empty I get arround 20

how easy, or hard, would it be to swap in a newer diesel from GM or perhaps a Cummins?

A new diesel (6.5) would be a direct swap. If you wanted to put a d-max in it, you would need a little fab work for engine mounts and a new harnes. Same with a cummins. I know the cummins can be done with the GM drive train, I know a guy up at silver lake that put a cummins in place of the 6.5 in his H1. I am NOT saying an H1 and a burb are the same by any means, but the drive train is the same, 6.5L TD, 4L80E, NP 231C (I think)...

that one is a Manki 4x4 bar. It came from a shop in G.R., but you can get them a lot of places now... When we bought it they were hard to find. Manki bars at the time were best on the market and built about 4 times stronger than any one else. I hit an f-150 with it and the bar did not budge... I tore the hitch and bumper off the f-150, wrinkeled the bed, bent in the bed sides and smoked the tail gate... all at under 15mph with zero damage to the burb... :-)

Thats awesome. I might have to look into one of those for Christmas for the truck.

Any rust on the body? I could not tell from the pics.

there is a little rust above the rear tires and a little on the bottoms of the drivers and passengers side rear doors, but it has running boards so most of the road crab does not touch the paint and has kept the rockers and doors in great shape!

Have you pulled the 6.5 apart yet to confirm it's just a gasket or a head? IIRC those early design blocks were notorious for the #8 and #7 cyl walls cracking.

I have not, but I have also never heard of a problem with the blocks, just potential problems with the head.
