Gen 1 5 speed swap

if you're talking about 5 speed dual range 4wd or something, that's a whole different ball game... it can be done, but it's REALLY hard to do without swapping the engine.
getting the engine tuned up REALLY nicely will do more for cruising MPG than adding a 5th gear will... i've seen 40+mpg from my brat when i wasn't romping on it and also keeping it rather slow.
