Default Newbie in Denver

Howdy all. Finally bought my first cruiser, a 1996 80 with the supercharger, OME lift, front ARB and winch, 170k miles. I have been lurking here and on Mud for months while I looked for my first crusier. I still own my Jeep (sorry) Wrangler, but trying to sell it so I can buy a FJ or something fun. My cruiser has been in Colorado her whole life, anyone recognize her? A PO put on a rear locker from a junked Cruiser, but hooked it up to a strange little switch on the dash. I hope to get a matching front locker and hook them up to the factory switches. There are also front disconnects that the latest owner had no idea about. He was a medical sales guy and out over 50k miles on it in the last 18 months. Now I plan on baselining all the fluids and maint. and then start looking at a birf job. Seeing as how I am a newbie, the next time anyone has to do a birf job, maybe I can tag along with a lot of beer and learn the ropes? I did a lot of expedition type wheeling in my Jeep, and I can't wait to take the LC up to my favorite spots. Anyway, thanks for reading my babbling message and I hope to see you on the streets or trails soon.

ps-I took off the Thule carrier and roof rack if anyone needs something like that. I will probably put them on Craigslist.

Default heh...

I think I may have parked next to him at home depot last week. No lift or ARB, but everything else looked the same, but he had factory lockers!

Default nice rig! Welcome!

Welcome. Come to the meeting tonight for proper introductions.

I'm not sure why you would want to go take apart birfields that are not broken. You might have to wait until the wheel bearing packing party to see all the birfs you want (and to have the help around in case you get stuck!)

:p The color is Antique Sage Pearl, only thing ARB is the front bumper, definately paid Christo's morgage for a month and why wait for boost when it can already be there?

Welcome Timmbuck2! Sweet truck! Look forward to meeting you and/or getting the trucks dirty!
