Nearly two years have been with Ryan, now. Coming up on 98K miles on the odometer, and finally, we had an event that wasn't commuting or getting groceries. I had a road trip event to Sacramento with my kids and my daughter's friends. We attended the Sacramento Anime Show over the weekend. Packed up the Ramcharger and off we went at 9 mpg! While in town, I picked up some ProComp shocks and we all had a smoother ride on the ride home. Yeah!

Moving forward with some needed repairs and replacements:

I made my son do some work, too:

From the new parts car, we'll be harvesting the tailgate, non-CAD front axle, AC compressor clutch, bumpers, and trailer hitch. What remains of the rest will be decided later.

rascott and suzi had Ryan jealous. He wanted to go road tripping and transported my son and I up to Lake Almanor this weekend. Sat amongst the pines and clean air:

After almost 2 years, I finally have a headliner again. A result of buying the parts car, I now have numerous parts I'd been looking for. The interior has been very noisy with loose plastic and lack of the sound deadening properties of all the interior bits. Secondly, I recycled a grab handle from Ray's ol' Blue for the sake of my wife and coworker, both of whom complain about getting into the lifted Ramcharger.

Yeah!

My immediate plans include replacing the cracked fiberglass tailgate, then using the axles and better springs from the parts truck.

neat looking install!
also- the grab handle is a good touch. suzi had one for the passenger, and the holes for one on the drivers side.
took me years to move it- now i use it all the time.


'89 kick w/some modifications.
some intentional.

...and the best thing is the grab handle is a recycled Montero part. No drill for this part, lined up perfectly to existing trim screw holes.

Today I worked on the other end and replaced the Dodge truck hitch with a Ramcharger-appropriate hitch the fits within the rear bumper and has two more bolts (3 per side) for a safer tow connection.
