95 is not the only year for air bags - not sure why he would brag about that. You'll want to trash the system anyway. $7500 is a bit steep for that amount of miles. I would only pay that price if the frame and body were rust free.

Looks like a nice truck though!

Wait, I've always thought 1995 was the only year for the RRC airbags as well - how many 1994s came with them - 100 or so? Not sure I've ever even seen a 1994 with airbags - especially on the steering wheel.

SRS air bags ie: soft dash was only 95.
EAS air bags, or bellows, were 93-95 LWB as well as 95 SWB.

Aha. So I was right in my thinking, and maybe Wolf was as well - interior air bags as in - deploy during a crash - was 1995 only.
Air bags as in Electronic Air Suspension was 1993-1995 and adjusted ride height.

So why scrap it when it works so much better than coil springs; better ramp travel, better ride and handling, better off road performance, adjustable ride height, etc? Is it just so you can get "the look?"

Damn that thing is clean, and looks good in white (lucky for you I'm at capacity on white vehicles...3 currently with 2 being Rovers ). Lee - you thinking of a purchase? I'm sure one of the locals would check it out (i would but am on hiatus in NY).

Wha? Because it is so prone to failure! In 6 months I've seen two trucks on the trail that had EAS failure and fell to their bump stops. It's a known fact that the LR bag system on the RRCs sucks. Air bags suck off road too. You can't articulate and push an axle in a rut. If the truck is going to stick to pavement, leave the system on the truck, have fun with the repair bill.

Well it may have been true in the past, but nowadays the repairs are usually zero to maybe a few tens of dollars. I have the standard tool kit: the 4 way jumper wires to pump up the system if it fails in the field, the free ECU cracking app from Storey Wilson to clear faults and the laptop cable I made for $5. This along with a stash of EAS hardware and bladders. I have yet to have a failure that I could not remedy within ten minutes. Yeah you need to know how it works, but once you figure it out you're golden.
Anyone who tells you otherwise is either ignorant or lazy.
As for off road, until you try it don't sell it short.

I think you're in the minority, and I've never seen an air bagged truck of any kind be usefull off road. If they were the bee's knees, you'd see them all over the trails, but...

But to each his own...

Because most RRC owners that are wheeling them are cheap fucks and aren't willing to repair the EAS, id happily take an LWB on bags if I had deep pockets.

Yeah, that's totally why.

Pointless to argue it anymore....

Admit it, you want to put 4" coil springs under it so you can fit 37's and be reaallly high up in the air.
