I am not sure where this project is. I am sure that mike has been in contact with the owner..... BUT if this is still in the same state as when I shipped it north I am willing to help get the diffs in and maybe running so it can go back to brads son ....

I'm sure many would love to hear what's been going on with this the past few years between these updates, but I'm just glad to see the progress in the near future. In the end, this truck may have had to come all the way East for Brad's father and son to make the amazing memories they're sure to make on their trip back home across the US.

As a way to honor Brad, his dad and his son want to fly out to pick up the truck and do a road trip back to California with it.

The truck is currently at Jeff Porch's place where he has already tore into it. The Toyota Diff swap is now done, and he is now tidying up some of the loose ends.

More to come soon.

Jeff B., thanks for the update! And, Jeff P., thanks for your efforts!

Out of curiosity, what work was done to Brad's 90 while it was at ECR?

It is my understanding they hadn't gotten a chance to work on it yet....we had planned to have the truck picked up from ECR and arrange a work group but Jeff has pretty much done this all on his own. Cant begin to thank him enough...

I thought it was taken by a few board members who had time to work on it and then brads dad and son drove it cross country.

Briggs had tried to organize some work this summer. I currently have a lot of free time and can lend a hand.
Where is Jeff P located?
