Pics don't want to load so here: http://smg.photobucket.com/albums/v1...tco/RRC%20GDE/

Not sure why the attachment manager keeps failing trying to load them directly.

You're welcome to the bumper........ but you have to take the truck with it.

What's the story on the GDE?
Maybe I should PM, but how did you get around OBDII with that DiscoII diesel install? Or, was it able to be registered?

You're spoiling it! I don't think that paint ever saw wax under my watch. The D-90 used it all up!

P.S. TWR is running great. No stalling issues so far w/ new amplifier. However, I hadn't had any issues with the other one either. Time will tell. A spare one and wrenches to replace it will be carried around for a while

I'm going to pull the front ABS sensors and clean them up. The computer had a bunch of different codes on the front two sensors and a relay. Cleared them and they haven't come back yet so clearly it's intermittent.

The D2 was "offroad use" only and clearly sold as such.

Registration was not the issue - it's the FED standard for OBD2 that was the killer. Many States you can register it but it was not legal for road use on a FED level. No way around that in that vehicle no matter what anyone tells you.

GDE was a trade in on the TWR one I had. No big story...... yet!

Being a 1991 it's non-OBD2 so it may get tweaked, but probably will just be cleaned up and lightly restored some more till I get to the D100 Hybrid project.

EXCELLENT! Glad to hear it and glad she is getting the care she deserves.

Yeah I feel bad having neglected the GDE a bit. She was my daily driver in the winter and I just ended up dealing with a lot of the small issues instead of fixing them. Had I known earlier I was going to sell it I probably wouldn't put some time into fixing the stuff. Decided quickly to snag your truck!

Happy you're putting the work into it though!

Thanks Chris - it's fun for me to bring her back to life a bit. It's exactly the truck I needed - enough issues to keep me entertained but not so much that I can't run it and 'wheel it.

Front door rattle solved. The foam surround on one of the front drivers was coming off. Luckily my slight speaker restoration hobby solved that quickly. Did a sweep test and only a few rattles below 100hz. Sounds pretty good.

Now to get rid of the hiss and alternator whine coming through the rear speakers.
