Re: I drank the Kool-Aid

858 mile trip this weekend....kind of a shakedown trip. All went well, about 9 mpg. 2000 rpm at 64 mph-ish. Re-gearing might be an option, not sure yet. Was wishing I had chains for a little while there.

Those RPMs don't sound too bad really. I'm up at 2,500rpm at 65mph with a 4.44 gear ratio, DT466 engine, and AT545 tranny.

Re: I drank the Kool-Aid

Hey wow... it's Apache pop-up green! that is what colour our Roamer was before I painted it! We called it "little green apple" coloured.

How much paint did it take?
