Thanks. I've got a soft spot for S series trucks. Deep down I'm a GM guy... That's one sweet Jimmy though.

On two seperate instances, I've almost traded my ZJ for a Blazer ZR2. The IFS is one of the things that's stopped me both times. It would have to be a really clean ZR2 for me to overlook that. One of which was almost exactly what I wanted. A dealer was willing to make an even trade with me for a 60k mile ZR2. I had my dad run the vin for me from his dealer and it was a clean 2 owner vehicle. I ended up not doing it, obviously. I'm happy I didn't.

I checked out a 4 runner and a lifted jimmy before I looked at the grands. The dealer was friends with the family and she said she wouldn't sell the jimmy to us and the 4 runner was a huge let down and more expensive.

Let it idle, cleaned all the snow off, and smiled since this is the second day in a row with no dead battery
Only thing in the way of being legal for me to drive is the ABS light (brake fluid level ok, checking fuse later) and reglueing the rear view mirror. Anybody know where i can get the wire cover that comes down from the headliner and attaches to rear view mirror?

Haha well I had some concerns for some time over a parasitic drain with the jeep. But I guess I don't have one now if it's kept charge for 2 days.

Thanks, though jy is not fun in this cold snowy weather

I owned a 2 door 4x4 95 Jimmy ZM6 (the S series off-road package before ZR2s). I loved that thing until the motor developed a terrible knock. Being a 95, I had a rarer engine/computer combo. It had a cross between OBDI and OBDII. It had the II's connector but monitored OBDI diags. Il swapping the motor meant swapping to one that worked with that computer. I also had to find one with the same setup distributor. I can't remember what was different about mine, but the majority either had side wires or top wires and mine was whatever the majority wasn't. Carmax gave me what I paid for it and I bough my ZJ. I've looked back but nothing has ever come of it.

4 runners are pretty nice in the bush my friend has one with 35 inch boggers there even better if you swap a solid axle in same goes for the little Toyota pickups with the 22re motor swap a solid axle and them things are not bad. I prefer american vehichles tho. But wouldn't mind a older Toyota.

You are talking thousand of dollars of modifications. I was talking about right off the dealer floor.
Almost any truck can be awesome with enough money. I like the old Toyota's though. Hard to kill hilux.

I would have gotten that Jimmy but there was something the saleswoman didn't like about the lift and I guess they were having other issues with it as well. It was a good looking truck but after I sat in a 95 limited 5.2 it was all said and done. Gobs more power and the interior was awesome.

I'm at work but I'm going to guess that's the Hilux killing episode?

And the ZJs interior is hands down first in its class.
