100 series - reliable, less mileage, comfier, less capable (IFS/etc)

80 series - ultra reliable, more mileage, less comfy (though still fine), ultra capable (especially with lockers)
I wouldn't necessarily say that the 80 is more reliable than the 100. But it is definitely easier to maintain (and repair) "in the bush" (or "on the trail").

It (the 100) is certainly a more plush ride than the 80. No doubt, a better daily driver and kid hauler. `03+ got six airbags in addition to all the other electronic safety gizmos (traction control, stability control, etc.).

While these numbers are meaningless for a modified Cruiser, they do hold water for this guy as he just wants to travel in a stock vehicle. Braking between the series is similar in that case.

Now, if he has 5 people inside and/or pulls a trailler, these numbers are very misleading. Loaded up, a 100 will have notably shorter stopping distances as the 100's system has far more reserve capacity. The 80's system has little to no reserve.
