Hello! My name is Tony and I live in Wilmington, NC. I found this forum a short while ago as I was doing some research for a 1990 Trooper I was looking at. I have bought the Trooper for $700 and immediately replace the entire rear-end. I put new brake calipers on the back at the same time since one was completely missing and the other was seized. Now I have a nice every day driver that only cost me $900, a few hours of time and only two busted knuckles!

I also added four new (to me) tires from Treadwright base solely on the positive reviews I have seen on this forum.

My plan is simply to drive it until I can't drive it any more. I also want to be able to take it onto the beach as often as possible. I do have a problem with the 4wd, but will try to address it in the proper category.

PS: I named the truck Gustafson after the grandpa in the movie Grumpy Old Men. We call him Gus. Somehow, the name just seems to match this Trooper that keeps on going and going and going........
