Bought a 95 LWB

As impulse buys go it's not as bad as a tattoo or Estonian orphan. I picked it up about an hour ago so I don't have a whole lot to share other than the picture below. The motor and transmission seem strong, it has an array of electrical gremlins that should keep me busy for a while. The best part is that it hasn't caught fire yet, which is more than I can say about my 90 at this stage of that relationship.

Nice RRC!
I keep planning to sell mine, but in the end can't let it go. They are fantastic trucks.

Sweet truck! was that one posted on NJ CL? Has the real nice headliner redone on it? We need to get together and work on RRCs. I just picked one up the other day too. It runs great, but won't stop. Already wheeled it in the woods

I *was* going to sell mine - but am very happy it didn't sell yet as I keep thinking of keeping it. They are GREAT trucks.

RRC's are the best, I would be hard pressed to ever be without one.

yeah the ABS light and brake like are both on and the pedal goes tot e floor. I think I might just bypass the ABS and run new lines. Because even if I replace the ABS i'm sure it will go again.

Cool truck. Let me know, when and where. I'll have to pick up a decent manual for mine in the meantime.

There are two black ones on NJ c-list right now. One cheap non-runner and the other a nicer (and more expensive) running truck. Or are you going to hold out for a truck from a more known source?
