Additional information:

This is a truly great build and a lot of fun to drive. It has never been wet or in the rain and has been garaged since completion. It does leak a few drops of oil on the floor, but this is minimal. These trucks leaked off the showroom floor when they were new.

There are no doors or hardtop, but it does include a bimini top. Doors and hardtopsare easily found online from many manufacturers.

Please contact me with any questions. I take trade-ins, offer financing and arrange worldwide shipping as well.
