    6.2 natural aspriated? or you'd drop a 6.5 in it? How is that? Thinking again..It'd be cool to do a 6.5 swap into something like was posted..or just go 4bt I suppose.

    Did these older trucks with the cab and camper connected come like that or are the custom jobs?

    You'd pay that normally for just the truck, camper aspect is a nice bonus.

    Don't think he'll do a mag discount since he's not on here. Did he get back to you with all the info? If not I'll shoot him a message for ya.

    Yep, sounds like a great truck and dude.

    Currently arguing with the SO whether we need to have more than 2 legal seats in our mountain vehicle.

    Very good truck deal for any west coasters: https://www.gcsurplus.ca/mn-eng.cfm?...&str=11&ltnf=1

    I would if I could but it's too far.

    Took it to southlake for Avy2 class. Surprisingly towed well in the snow/weather. Took it slow. Slept comfortably with outside temps around 20 and the heater would keep it around 50 at sleeping level inside.

    Yeah that was a nice rig at a reasonable price.
    There's nothing better than sliding down snow... flying through the air.

    Congrats and strong work. I had sent the link to a few others earlier and when I checked this afternoon the post was gone. How did the sellers "new" build look? Did you get any photos of it...just to give us a taste of what he will be selling off in the future.

    I took a semi-justified sick day to make it happen. (Every adult got norovirus on the Crusty Butt trip last weekend thanks to an infant.)

    New build is rad. Same basic platform, but bigger: Express AWD. Swing out doors on both sides, upgraded tires. He showed me the storage he's working on for it: reusing old lockers (gym like) laid flat with home-made vinyl/foam topper for sleeping. Clever but i didn't really understand how it all fit together.

    Snapped a photo of the seller's new project this morning when I road over to pick up my old car.

    The prison cot on top of the clanking metal rack sounds dreamy. Thanks for the follow up shot!

    Seller was a bit smarter than that. There is rubber dampening in places and marine carpet lining in a good bit of it. It's pretty clever given the lockers are bomber and cost him next to nothing.

    Thanks. Saw your CCV van on my bike over to his place this morning. That high top would be great for camping. A bit jealous, but I also like all the racks build on mine. Welcome to Colorado where your neighbor also has a AWD Express outfitted for mountain duty.

    Just picked up this 4 month old beaut for half price. Haven't found any major problems yet so I'm stoked.
