that first one is Sweet.. It will be intresting to see what it goes for, and how the value of a modded 80 is vs stock

Tim, you are pretty good! But, not quite fast enough. Sitting in my garage at the moment is a Sage 40th Anniversary that I brought home just an hour ago that has some history attached to it. Search El Mariachi's threads om Mud about waiting too long for an ARB. It looks MUCH better these days!!
Thanks for the vibes Tim - they worked. I'll be a little more informative in a couple of days.
:cool:

Both of those look great. :thumb: Almost makes me wish I hadn't just bought a locked 94. This isn't mine, but it's a 94 engine if you can believe it.

Hmmmm.. the ebay one is pretty nice, and close too.

What I want to know is what's the plan for that sweet 62 that used to have a spot in Steve's garage?

Congrats. I knew you where buying Jim Reiss's old cruiser, just had it mixed up with the other one.

SOA? 37s? You can count on it maintaining F power fer sure. It will remain the wheeling truck although the '97 does have lockers. Hmmmm.
Pics will be forthcoming and the first mod has already been installed - a Slee rear bumper with an ARB for the front to follow. The plan is for it to stay stock height and tire size for the mean time as it will be our freeway flyer for travelling around the US starting in July this year. Can't wait!

Thanks Robbie. Yes, it will be The Nell Mobile #2! To think that we got back into Cruisers eight years ago because of a dog. Thanks Nellie!!!!!
Yup, see you real soon.

General area of major repair. The original non-Four Wheel Drive door trim is no longer available and so will have to swap out the passenger side trim to match. I guess that will make this truck somewhat unique 40th Anniversary. 40th emblem and sticker are on their way from Texas so that will eventually match the passenger side too. Bling 40th Anniversay floor mats are coming from Jim Reiss too. Is this the Dark Side? :)

Another of the repair area. The paint and body work look really good and it just the snow slop that makes it appear less than perfect. When I get the truck home later today I'll have to get some full body shots including the new Slee rear bumper. These pics were taken for Jim Reiss, the previous owner who fully documented the truck's looks on IH8MUD before it was shipped to CO. That I have the truck now can be blamed on my dumb luck and Christo being a good friend. Thanks to Jim, Gary Coberly and especially Christo for fueling my continued Cruiser lust.
Whoa, next pics will be downsized some - sorry!

http://forum.ih8mud.com/showthread.php?t=74502 is the third of three different threads on Mud about this truck and the point where I come in. As Jim (elmariachi) Reiss, the PO, points out in the thread, the damages weren't as bad as first perceived and that the truck will live to wheel another day. He was right!!!

I have a feeling my Mud moderator duties are going to get a lot more "Interesting" with Crash getting an 80.

;) Let's just say that while I don't know diddly yet about 80s, I have learned a TON about forum etiquette over the years - much of it the hard way so anything "interesting" from me will be non-dramatic. Ask Euclid on the 60 forum, he'll tell you! :D

Interesting reading. Looks like the damage was all sheet metal, which has now been replaced. Awesome! You'll love it.
