Thanks Guys. They had sort of probable cause as I was running a CO plate on the front (It didn't want to come off!) and my Maine dealer tag on the back.... it did seem a little fishy i suppose. Plus it's Kansas..... a black Rangie with tinted windows = drug dealer.

The officer was really cool about it all and they really were careful with the truck. Also the wording used, when I look back on it was indicative of them "asking" me if they could search the truck, i do know my rights..... but not real obvious wording from them and a little misleading. To be honest I was ready for a break from driving and had a good laugh out of it and a great story.

There is something about a black shiny RRC on the highway though.... got pulled over today in PA for going 61mph in a 55 !!!! I couldn't believe it. The officer said "I think you were going even faster but I clocked you at 61". WTF? Seriously? My odometer could be off almost that much. $121.50 fine. F@$k. Oh well, I'll chalk it up to payback for all the times I *WAS* speeding over the last 19+ years with no tickets.

Currently stopped at a friends house in Great Barrington, Mass (Berkshires) for the night. Tomorrow I will pick up some seats from George outside Boston and HOME bound I will be!

It sounds funny, but I think the RRC needed her legs stretched because she is running better everyday - really. I did run 2 bottles of B12 Chem fuel cleaner through on back to back tanks of gas. But everything feels better on her. Plus I have been getting a solid 17 and up to almost 19MPG on one tank out of it.

Thanks. If I was close to home and could fight it I'd have a different attitude for sure. But there's not much I can, or rather will do so it's not worth pissing myself off about it. Because it could certainly bug the hell out of me if I let it.

Attitude is everything.

I'm having a great trip and it all adds the memory and uniqueness of the adventure.

Congrats Doug - I knew the old girl had it in her, all she needed was a good driver. Glad to hear you're home safe and sound.
Kind Regards,

So it's been a few months..... she is going to be back up for sale. Wifey really wants me to have a Defender and i have always wanted one so the sexy RRC will be finding anew home again. I know she will be loved by any owner as she simply calls out to be loved.

I have done a few things to improve her, as well as some maint. and new tires etc.

Anyone interested let me know - I will be making a for sale post and will link back here to the pics and info.

Thanks!
Doug

TWR parts are a near to perfect as any you'll find I'd think. Some very minor stress cracks in the paint (the plastic seems 100% fine) and a few scuffs but nothing at all bad.

The side skirts brackets that hold them on are the only rust areas on the truck. The brackets (not the truck) are a little crusty and the front bracket on the drivers side is a rusted where the bend is. They should be fixed to be *right*. I planned to remove the TWR parts and redo everything to perfection over the winter and will do so if she doesn't find a new home and a D90 fills the shop!
