Excited to find this place!

Postby RobsZRinAR » Tue Feb 24, 2015 8:08 am

Hi all CCr's! My name is Rob and I am near Mountain Home, Arkansas.
In late January, I purchased a 2003 ZR5 in black, one owner (local) with 120K miles for $6000.00. Very well cared for and I'm loving this truck! Pics will come soon - I'm that stoked!
Last two were a '98 Sonoma and a 2000 Jimmy SLE. They were okay but, WOW, this little ZR has me excited! After perusing the 'net and finding this place, it seems to me that the S-10 is the Ruger 10/22 of the automotive world.
It needs a few attention points such as oil and tranny cooler lines/ fittings, fuel cap & filter, green coolant and a good chassis lube. Other than that, I'm anxiously awaiting Spring to get to work on this beast. 4x4 works great - tried it out often over the past week :x .

I look forward to learning much about my new ride from you kids and, hopefully I'll be able to contribute something, too.

Wow, great intro! :wave:

I got excited to see someone in my neighborhood when I saw Mountain Home.....then I saw AR instead of ID :blink: Guess not even close.

Welcome aboard. Ya s10 are extreamly common so lots of deferent forums.
But that's part of why I like them plenty of options, upgrades, and reading.

Thanks for the kind welcome, guys!
HenryJ - it's a small world, you know? I know some folks in Mtn Home, ID by the name of Bricker. Chuck was a gunsmithing instructor when I was in college, early '80s! Know him or his son?

Don't know many from Mountain Home, ID, but I am lousy with names. I have been across the river in Oregon most of my life. I recognize most of the natives :)
