I spent almost an entire year trying to find a 7.3L RB with barn doors before I picked this up in February 2013. Had 175k on it, spent $3500 to get it. Ran great, steering was snug and straight, got 22mpg's on the way home completely empty. I was very happy and lucky the first one I found was in good shape because desperation was starting to sink in.
Between amazon, craigslist, discountvan, and the junkyard it's coming along nicely. I just added the ARB awning, and found a good bike hitch. For the first trip of this year with it I went down to the Oregon Trail Rally and did some camping/spectating. It did just fine up some of those big hills in Dufur and even better on some of the steep muddy hills in the forest. Still 2WD, but grabbers and a trakloc have served me quite well thus far. Ended up getting 19mpg round trip.
Weather was nice on Friday and I finally got a shot I felt was worthy enough to post here. So here she is with Mount Adams.
