'96 XLT From Bandit Customs

I recently picked up a 1996 XLT to use as a DD. And like always [MENTION=232637]Bandit Customs[/MENTION] came thru!!

[MENTION=17554]NICE59FORDF100[/MENTION] had already named the vehicle "Layla Bandit", the name will remain Layla Bandit. It started when Russel was here in Hamilton working on The Green Buffalo with [MENTION=173980]easymc[/MENTION] and myself. He mentioned that he and [MENTION=97]Kris Guilbeaux[/MENTION] were having a 96X coming to Bandit Customs that was going to be used as a resale. We spoke on this subject for a bit and the asking price with coming from Bandit Customs were too good to pass. I had a 99 Tahoe as a dd that was nothing more than a money pit and I was not even driving it since it seemed I was lucky just to make it to town and back without a malfunction occurring.

Kris notified me when the title had come in and arrangements were made for the time to do the transfer. Robert and I went to Austin on the evening of the 3rd and picked up Layla.

The vehicle is 2wd with 121K. Since it has the 4.0, there are already spare parts on hand.

Before we left Austin, Russel reminded me that it would not handle like the Dr, Jack. :dpchug:

Here are some pics, there will not be any modifications (?) since it's primary purpose in a dd.
