Bought that '94 in MD. Nice, solid truck, a few gremlins to address. Pics forthcoming.

Not sure about the bumper. It's a non-winch bumper, so I may look at modifying it or selling it.

The truck is pretty well set up with 4.11 gears, lockers, and spring conversion with 2" lift. I'll probably look at sliders, diff guards, and a winch, that's about it! Then just mild to medium wheeling.

I went over the truck once I got it home. ZERO body rust, with the exception of some scale forming in the tailgate in the usual places.

I've got the ABS light on which I am told is the accumulator, and the check engine light which several known Rover shops can't get to go away.

Maybe. Is it the barbell looking light or the ABS light? The Barbell looking icon is the traction control light and it can come on if the brake pad wear sensor wire has come off, which is a fairly common thing.
The ABS light means one thing: low pump pressure, which means big bill is coming for a visit.

CEL light is one of those weird things that just never seems to die once it comes on. Usually it is from bad HEGOS. I have replaced them only to have the light stay on. Only Rovacom can turn it off by clearing the codes. On the last truck I had I just took the idiot light bulb loose from the back of the binnacle.

It's both. The ABS light can be the pump, accumulator, check valve, or sensors. I did the diagnosis and the pump is fine and appears to be the check valve or a leak.

That's what I plan on doing.

By the way, do these trucks have the LED computer readout for the check engine codes like the D-90s do? Where's the computer anyway?

To see the readout, you must remove the outer plastic seat box trim on the passenger side.

It's prolly a 44,

I'd be tempted to kill the ABS

That looks like an ARB winch bumper to me. Jus no winch installed.

You are correct! I hadn't looked closely at it. Even better.

Found it, thanks!!! I need to cut a hole in the trim panel for next time.

It's a 45, which can be a ton of little things as you know. It is running rough and stinky, so I am going to start with a fuel filter and work my way through the usual areas.

I did the diagnostic - it's flashing a 2-8 code which is "no voltage to ABS solenoid valves, faulty valve relay AB14 or wiring"

The Traction Control light was on because the PO removed the ABS fuse.
