Hey from Fort Collins with an 87/01

That is an 87/01, not one of each! 1st gen body on a 3rd gen. I think there is one more of these floating around the Front Range somewhere.

I just posted up on the main Newb section and some pics on the 4R/pickup section.

Check my post here for pics:
photos & info

Overall happy with the truck, but my current suspension SUCKS. The truck came with some (stock?) coils/Procomp shocks in the front and PP coils/yellow-blue Bilsteins in the rear... rode great. I found some cheap Fabtech coilovers and put those on with some LC springs in the back- same rear shocks that came on it. That lift resulted in a really rough ride. I will be getting rid of those Fabtechs and replacing the rear shocks as soon as I can find something else. That setup is just too rough off road, it's bad enough just in town. I'll post my suspension woes over there as I try something else.

Hope to meet some of you soon!

Wow, can't say I've ever seen such a thing - very impressive! Not a fan of the autotragic, but that is certainly one of the more unique vehicles on the road - and you can't really tell... that's probably the coolest part!

Cool, I think I have seen a red one for sale that was a little more setup for offroad at some point. I'm also in Fort Collins (more or less). Our numbers in Northern Colorado are growing to a pretty good size again. Maybe we'll see you around. Welcome.

Thanks for the welcome. I definitely want to wheel with some of you. I haven't really given it a good go yet.

That red one just got taken back to have a SC put on- I just talked to the owner of Iribis by chance when I was calling about some parts on craigslist. That red truck was listed originally for $14,500, I got mine for $3,500! Granted he gets an e-locker, better bumpers, sliders, yada yada... well built truck, but I can make do with the $11G difference.
