Replaced the coolant overflow with all new lines from Amazon - it was $36 and came with a new cap. Dang good deal. No more burning coolant smell!
Also rebuilt the cv end of the front driveshaft with a Dorman part - a bit better quality than the ones I had been buying. Let's see how long it lasts this time. I hate lying in the slush and sand at this time of year...reminds me that I should get a creeper. And damn while that shaft was out...it really highlighted how crappy the liberty is in only 2wd lol
I had to replace mine about a year before we got rid of it (still wish we hadn't). I bought the cheapest from Rock Auto. It was ok but I always had an eye on it
What do you want to do? What are your driving habits (distance, frequency), what are you comfortable with for a fuel bill, do you plan on hauling anything (sounds like the Libby may not long for the world), do you need to haul up building supplies to the land you have in Lavant, etc?
I DD a 3/4 ton diesel Dodge. Not *that* bad on fuel for what it is, I can haul anything I want to, etc. Downside is that it rides like a 3/4 ton truck, which gets a bit old on the commute.
Tahoe/Yukon/Explorer or maybe even a Trailblazer (7pass version with the 5.3) might fit the bill. I own a Dodge but don't know that I'd recommend one. Not as familiar with the Toyota side (Sequoia/4Runner?).
