I've been on the hunt for a new desert toy that will accommodate my wife and kids. having a 2 seater car just hasn't worked out for us. My good friend (another board member on here) decided to put his sand car up for sale. While I was waiting to close the deal on it with him I went to Glamis on Thanksgiving and camped with a new group of guys. They pretty much all had desert trucks. Long story short one of the guys ended up crashing his truck along sand Hwy the first day. later that night he decided to look for a new truck and put this truck up for sale. So now I was up against the fence between buying this truck or the Double throwdown extreme rail. The rail was definitely more $$ & I will still have to purchase a new flatbed trailer to haul them. I threw out an offer and he refused it. Several weeks went by and I got a text from the owner. The truck was back up for sale. What really pushed me toward this truck was the fact that I can use it year round and in closer places then Glamis. I already signed up for a Baja Excursion trip in May. So We went back and fourth on the pricing and ended up closing the deal. The owner lives in Illinois and stores the truck up by Pismo. Two weeks ago I found a new cab in las Vegas. Drove out there and picked it up. Last week I went out to Pismo and grabbed the truck. next week I'll be dropping it off at the same shop that built my bumper on the DMAX. He's going to rebuild some of the suspension that's bent & cut off the cab and replace it with the new cab. I'll be swapping all the doors and replacing the windows myself. This should be a great truck for us,. Looking forward to hitting up some off-road race events and going to both Barstow and Glamis with it. I'm shooting for Presidents weekend for the first trip.
