The gold package was trying to make up for the lack of pink panties.....

Nice truck! I figured you would wind up going that route. How long till we rip the leather out and replace it?

Just a note, please look underneath or at least get photo's especially of the rear axle area etc etc to check for corrosion. A lot of times the trucks look awesome up top, but is a basket case underneath.

Not sure if St Louis is rust area, but better check before you spend your $'s.

Default Nice.

From a new 100 series club member to another, welcome aboard Chris!

Here is what I plan to do before Moab, well maybe a little more, and a little less lift...

'Course, I seem to be the only guy in the US of A that has no factory roofrack and never did. According to my VIN, never installed. Tim and I have a contest trying to look for my color blue (exactly like the photo) and no factory roofrack. It is kinda funny when you actually are lookin, factory equipped roofracks are EVERYWHERE!

St. Louis isn't as bad as Chicago or Wisconsin, but they do salt the roads there.

Thanks for the heads up you guys...

Rust was my biggest fear.

All I know is the independent dealer said no rust, they get about 13 inches of snow a year on average and the car has been garaged..

Guess I will have to just see. I can get my deposit back if I want, if the car does not meet my standards.

Wondering about suspension lifts? And a second set of wheels? Looking to do the same as my FJC which is run tall and skinnys for Overland/around town and have the option to toss on the big meats..

I need to spend some dough before March 15...Cause I want to do the Kokopelli with it enroute to the trail leader training.

So looking into lift/front bumper/sliders/skids...yikes that will be spendy. Rear bumper is going to have to wait for this fall.

The rear most body mount area especially, and the bottom of the 1/4s, like the other series guys chop off.

I've had the privilege of living multiple years in Wisconsin (15), Arizona (16), Colorado (10), Washington (4), Florida (2), and Rhode Island (2).

The best conditioned vehicles are without question the Pacific NW. I shop Seattle and Portland first. The worst was Rhode Island. Believe it or not, Florida was worse than Wisconsin too. I don't think there is any significant difference between CO and AZ.

Am I nuts or are these smokin' deals? Especially since the seller's would most like come off those numbers significantly.

Honestly, even if the 90k was done the first two are too high. The last two are good, but only if the 90K was done. Trust me, the 90k not being done can make a good deal a bad one really quick.
