Great looking ride. LTX might be the best tires I've used on a truck. Wear like iron. Nice mpg given speed and size.

Nice looking truck and have fund doing the cross country trip.

Check the oil cooler lines.

Ohh! I read it was a 1986... Never mind then.

Better safe than sorry.

Awesome looking 110. Congratulations on your purchase!

Not trying to hijack your post, but it brings memories back of a similar trip that I did in the Fall of 1998. Found a 1969 IIA 109 NADA 6cyl (yes, 1 of the 811) in Toronto at a great price. Not running, needed work but it was complete. Drove from Orlando and back in 4 days. Fixed it, painted it and enjoyed it for 8 years. I sold "La Sapa" in 07 and she went to Philadelphia.

Enjoy your trip and please be safe!

Instead of staying out in front of the snow storm, you could turn around and play in it. You DO own a Land Rover now

Did you make it out of WY? The winds in Denver were ridiculous this afternoon. You have a good tailwind pushing you east!
