Frank Raines is fun. You be back there later. Watch for brush. There are some tight trails there. You will see it coming easily so don't be afraid to go there.

Thanks, Pedram! It's not that much further than Hollister, so more do-able this Saturday for me than CM.

So you are saying I will find it easy? ;)

David, I was saying you love it there. It's different. Plus you share the trails with everything from a guy on a dirt bike to ATVs. It's open to all. And it's new to this club.

Yep -- keep an eye on the Feb MORG thread -- we're watching the storm system make its way through and if South Cow Mountain is closed or conditions would be unpassable/unsafe, we will drop to Frank Raines (assuming it too isn't rained out.)

Hi and welcome! Great looking RRC, especially getting runner that clean at that price. Can't tell a lot from the one pic but it looks like a '94 SWB...?

I have quite a few parts in stock, including few off-road goodies, especially if you plan to ditch the EAS and go to springs.

Oops. Didn't realize how light I was on details until you mentioned that.

Yes, 94 SWB County. 163k miles. British Racing Green on tan interior. Overall good shape. EAS works to the extent that it will fill the bags and self level and maintain ride height but it has a soft fault right now that I need to clear. I have a dedicated garage laptop for my BMWs that also I'm setting up with EASunlock and want to keep EAS functioning. I also need to replace the gear shift switch as it doesn't know what gear its in and gives me a CEL with code 69 and keeps the t-case selector solenoid locked. Beyond that, seems pretty solid. I'm very interested in off-road goodies that are cheap. Not looking to add $1000 bumpers and such at this point - that's a ways down the line.

You guys suck. I made other commitments this Saturday since I didn't want to make the long trek to Cow Mtn. I would have absolutely been at Frank Raines if you went there instead. Figures...... ::cheesy::

The t-case shifter problem is most likely due to a bad solenoid. Very common for these to go bad, you can remove the solenoid fairly easily (getting to it is the fun part!) It doesn't care what gear you're in, as long it's not in Park, it should unlock. I believe the solenoid is controlled by a micro switch inside the shifter housing, if you remove the shift knob and shifter bezel you should be able to see it. The gear selector switch is a simple on/off switch on the tranny that is basically the Neutral Safety Switch but also tells the ECU that you're either in Park/Neutral or Drive/Reverse. These don't often go bad but it's certainly possible. I have a couple. Will the engine start in gear, or have you tried it?

I do know a few people who swear by the EAS, most of them swear at it and then switch to coils. Kudos for keeping it working as long as you can! I've never actually driven an RRC with EAS. I have two '94s. a SWB and a LWB as well as three '95 LWBs. All five were originally EAS trucks that were converted to coils before I got them. And I've done a couple of conversions for other people who gave up on the EAS after it just got too expensive and problematical to keep working. One was a '95 that had good air springs, a new compressor and good valve block but had so many electrical faults with the system that he finally gave up on it.

My '94 LWB is also BRG (known as Brooklands Green) one of my favorite colors.

I wouldn't worry much about it; Frank Raines is getting enough rain this weekend as well that the Feb. MORG may either be canceled or rescheduled. Keep checking the Feb MORG post for the latest info...

Dan,

You have more trivia than me ... so, do you know whether Mosswood green was only on Brooklands edition LSEs, or was it available on other 1994 vehicles? I prefer the mosswood to the Brooklands green, but you would have thought the Brooklands Edition would have been Brooklands green ....

I'd never seen/heard of this special edition, so thanks for mentioning it! Found some photos -- the updates on the front and rear bumpers are interesting!

From memory (and mine isn't that good) they were dealer fitted options. The Brooklands body kit was, I think, fiberglass. But all of the "official" ones were Mosswood green, unless anyone knows otherwise ....

I don't even know if any ended up in the USA. Just like the three-spoke chrome wheels on RRCs which were a US dealer thing (never direct from LR), these may have been UK only ....

Regards,

Graeme
