Looks like it's the gas version for me
You have to realize though, a diesel will get better fuel mileage than a gas unit.
Average gas mpg with 2wd=15.
Average diesel mpg with 2wd=20+.
Drop those number down about 5mpg for a 4x4 unit.
My old gas 4x4 Chevy van a few pages back got between 10 and 12mpg.
