Additional FeaturesPower Brakes
The truck was converted in '93 and has 14000 miles as electric, 7000 with current owner. It is driven daily and has been reliable. I have never run out of power. Recently we improved the mounting of the power brake booster by using rubber isolation boots. It is very quiet now.
