JUst picked it up!

Joel,
I just picked up the 90 from Jordan. It drives great! No vibes, as solid/stable as any 4WD I have ever driven. Looks so sweet, too.

Good work, I know Buck will be happy. I will be sure to get pics of the center console.

Speaking of getting trucks dirty, we need to find a weekend and get everyone together with all these diesel turds and hang out. Gotta stop and have fun sometimes...

I too had the luxury of driving this monster (prior to the shock adjustment) and it is absolutely unreal! I could not believe the details and overall quality of this truck at every inch... If anyone is ever wanting to have there truck restored, Joel is your man. ECR may be getting topped...

No my full time occupation is more along the lines of dismantler rather than restorer... I like to think of myself as a amateur professional restoration enthusiast
