Boise 78 Wagoneer

I've recently acquired a "barn find" 78 Wagoneer that's in pretty good shape. I'm gradually replacing all the worn out stuff. The tires for example were 1989.
Anyone else from Boise on this forum?

I am (though maybe only for a couple more months), along with a couple others. Let me know if you want to get together and compare notes some time, I'd be happy to get together.

What ???

You're leaving Boise. Everyone moves here, no one leaves. Kind of like Hotel California.

I got here late (Oct 2019) from the SF Bay.
If I had known China was planning to try killing us all I would have immediately bought a house in Boise instead of renting. Easy way to have made a couple $100K!
Unfortunately the company that moved 40 of us up is now going mostly out of biz due to a contract loss, so I took a position with Customs and Border Protection in AZ.

I'm a Boise native but seriously considering cashing out and going someplace more affordable.

I'll be there in June or early July (we bought our house in 2018 and are waiting for my son to graduate). Looking forward to meeting all you good Boise Folks. Welcome to the Forum!!! Post up some pics! There was a young guy on here, recently, that bought a barn find Wago, got it running, fixed some damage, and put it up for sale. I want to say it was dark brown or maroonish? You might have bought his.

NO HERK! Don't leave! Don't let all the nutty California refugees ruin Boise!
