    Default '95 RRC LWB - What on earth did I do?

    A couple years ago we sold our D1, which left a gaping hole in our fleet, and we still miss that LR. Knowing it's in good hands is really important, but dragging my feet with shipfitter's on my 109, we still didn't have a family 4WD we could all jump-in and take off for a week. Fast forward to Wednesday night and this arrived:

    A 1995 RRC LWB, Western truck, all original including EAS, only 49k miles. It is eerily strange to sit in it - never owned a RRC, and it has just a hint of the D1 dash. We love it!

    Wow. 49k. The '95 is my favorite because of the dash.

    Nice find.

    I'll get some. Today I did all the fluids, and a general once-over. There is a very slight oil leak, that drips downward onto the trans cooler lines beneath the front cover. Other than that it seems to be holding all fluids. The front CV's wer packed with grease, so I flooded with 90wt, and I'll have to do a few drain/refill cycles to purge it all out. I'll likely have to renew the SPH seals as well....

    So far I've changed all the fluids (except coolant), done a cursory once-over, and placed a small parts order. For safety I'm going to replace the oil cooler lines. I'm going to wait on coolant for now, as I'd like to get the radiator inspected/cleaned, and may do the water pump at the same time. I need to read-up on the '95 RRC ABS system, then I'll bleed them, shoes and rotors are fine, and brakes are AWESOME. I've made a few local runs, and last night moved the Scout Troop trailer - this thing tows the doors off a D1, aside from the relatively low HP, you can't even feel the trailer due to the EAS and better brakes.

    Here are few more photos...

    Devildog,

    That's crazy - I work in Three Bridges, and use River Road as my cut through!

    The only real rust I've found was the right-rear mud shield, where the mud flap mounts. Below is the original next to a galvanized replacement from YRM (with a stealth POR15 topcoat).

    All I can figure, since everything in the same vicinity is rust free, is the original panel was never painted or treated.
