See my signature line.

That's the first truck we imported for you that you sold to Jay ?

So why don't people move it inside where it is high and dry unless the inside of the windscreen goes under water. At worst it is a matter of cutting & adding in 40 or so wires to make the longer and cutting a hole through the bulkhead. At best the loom can be stretched to bring the box inside.

When I converted my engine to efi I located the computer and relays inside at mid instrument panel level. One can always relocate componets that are not sensors or controllers.

The truck didn't live long enough, it was totaled about 30 days after the picture above. Rover moved it inside for the 97 model year so it was only an issue on the first year gems 96's disco's and the 97 NAS 90.

Well as a woman I enjoy my luxuries and have given a great deal of thought to luxurious camping. 2 sinks, running water, chest refrigerator, 2 burner propane stove with broiler, porta pottie and a nice comfortable bed. Nice well cooked meals, a nice glass of wine and fresh salad. Comfortable seat in back under a reading lamp and always several books along. Even a reading lamp at the top of my bed for reading in bed. In general I am of the school that says if you want to go home then there is something missing in your camping setup. Though I have found that at around 3 months the inside of the dormie feels really cramped and it is time to go home. I have give some thought to a 130 2 door Dormobile but it would not be as maneuverable.

Take care,

In this case it wasn't simply lack of experience, it was the story of "the old bull and the young bull standing on top of the hill looking down on the field of cows"

I could have easily taken the billy goat line up and around, but noooooooo! I just had to be a jackass.

I still miss that truck. That 200 was perfect and the paint was all original. Where is that truck today?

Take care,
I understand. The type of woman I am and what I consider luxuries are just different and few. Food, water, shelter, a camp fire (the best meals can come from those), the night air, a clear sky, the sounds of nature and good friends. All else is bonus. I can't think of a time that I have needed anything so badly from home as to want to abandon a trip. Surely some day my needs will change... I am such the primitive.

So yeah I use them. Left to right top to bottom:
Series on Top of the World.
90 in the high Uintas, the San Rafael Swell, Utah West Desert, Colorado Engineer Pass, Utah Dunes.

And yeah, I used to own the blue RRC too...it went to the Dunes, and obviously CO w/the new owner (now at 67k original miles).
Oh man, great trips and shots!

Gonna add this one for ya.

The 2dr also gets out, but you didn't ask for those pictures.

To the ROAV crew, I miss the events at the farm and in the James river. Need to find the pictures odd the 80" with only the windscreen out of the water. Utah does ease the pain though. :-)

That last pic of the Series looking over snow was an epic trip! The Series was breaking trail for the rest of the trucks. That was a good time!
My Tacoma (what I had at the time) appreciated it.
