Mwaaahahahaha!

My collection is nearly complete! World domination is sure to follow!

1995 RRC that's just about as good as they come. Window and door switches and brakes and radiator and exhaust and ABS res. and tires and shocks and springs and steering dampener and battery all done in last two years. No cracks in dash. No rattles. No squeaks. Fans and AC work.

Picked it up today for $1000.00

Congratulations! Sweet deal! RRC's make you feel rather like gentry!

I'm grabbing a 89k mile BC LWB on air tomorrow. Do you need a headliner as well? If so, maybe we can get a twofer. (Two for twice the price!) ;-)

Headliner is able to be ignored for now, but needs replacing. How much?

Engine runs so quiet. No ticks or odd noises at all. Front seats are still very comfortable, but have tears. Rear seats are in good condition. Missing the cargo shelf. Seems to have a non-original, non-heated windscreen.

Paint is good, but has that one dent near driver's door. And a few spots here and there that are dinged or scratched. Normal 20 year old stuff. No rust at all on tailgate or lift gate. Windows all come down and up quickly. All doors swing open and shut very smoothly, no creaks or noise. The front seat adjusters work! CD works! AM radio is very clear. FM gets no reception. Moonroof works, no leaks noticed. And rear wiper works. All switches are sharp and clicky like.

No major leaks. Shifts very smoothly. A slight pull to left with hard braking. Otherwise, no rattles, wobbles, or odd sounds in drive train. Seems that all dash lights are working. The SRS, TC, and Antilock lights are on. But the brakes have good feedback and are very effective. And although it was raining hard while driving, I never noticed any traction or anti-lock issues. It has 305k miles!

It was bought new in Portland in April, 1994. So it must have been one of the first ones here. Two owners.

I am going to sell the Disco and use this as my daily till I get the 110 running. Then it will be semi-mothballed till my son is old enough to drive. I'll teach him how to take care of it and give it to him as long as he pays for it and spends the time on it. It will get sheep skin seat covers. New floor mats. Needs something to happen with bumpers/endcaps. And we'll put a 1" lift on it when it comes time to get new tires.

I'll get some good pics tomorrow.

Here are a few from the phone from when I bought it.

Oh, and the trailer is great too! Came with it for an extra $350.

Well done. I hadn't noticed that it was a LWB too! My fave's! Headliners are about $250. Also, wet okole makes a factory looking seat cover (perfect fit w/headrests and arms w/piping) for about $600. Check out Crown14's last build for the specs. I need two full sets now. If you like them and want in, I'm pretty sure we could get a deal on 3! I'm in no rush on any of this stuff either.

I think it is Plymouth Blue. It's in good condition, but has flaws that will be shown with good photos.

That's right! I remember seeing that on DWeb years ago. I toyed with doing it on one of my other trucks.

Is this the one where you put toggle switch in to select the CD vs the Aux and fool the head unit into playing whichever you have the switch selected?

This truck is going to sit on the back burner till I sell the Disco, or get the 110 rolling. Can't think of it as a project yet!

Nope. Not a bad idea, but this was a scratch plan. My buddy just went all radio shack on my stock head unit. Started from zero and ended a hero. Clean and simple. Not even difficult to execute and without any technical aptitude.

Josh will be posting it for me as it's a pdf and I can't upload it via the mobile app.

Well, it looks nice. I thought Plymouth Blue was more silvery.
Anyway, I like this one whatever it is.
I think you can pop that dent out on the drivers side 1/4 panel.
Those fenders are not too bad to remove either.

Got around to getting some more pics of the new truck: https://www.flickr.com/photos/bhcmba...57660889616306

I'll just throw this out there... stuff I need for my LWB that I am not going to buy anything for because it isn't supposed to be another project!
Floor mats
Bumper end caps
Front bumper
Front seats

Gorgeous shots. What's wrong with your front bumper?

I might be replacing my end caps with some nos I have. If I do, would you'd like my takeoffs? If so, they're yours. Just faded.

Sweet looking truck Ben. My first Classic had a saggy headliner and I just pulled the headliner pan out and pulled the fabric off. It was easy to clean the bad foam off just with a stiff brush and then I sprayed it with a rust red colored high fill primer. It came out looking pretty good so I just reinstalled it without any fabric over it. Cheap way to fix the headliner. Only took a couple of hours to do.

It will be cool to watch this truck come together. Oh yeah, that's right, it isn't a project ; )
