    First thing I thought when I looked at it: :screwy:

    Besides the drab green, what's so MILITARY about it? It's military-looking, but what else?

    Is it the 4 cyl? No. Tiny tires? Nope. Fact that it's 2wd? Uh-uh. Foriegn truck? Nah....


    To each their own, but definitely not my cup of tea:cool1:

    I think it looks kind neat in a utilitarian way. Ugly, but kinda neat. Bolting crap to the body occasionally freaks me out, so thumbs up that he did it and it doesn't look like a total hack.

    But, 2wd just kills it... All that effort would've made more sense (to me) on a 4wd, if you're going to go that crazy...

    If it was 4WD, it'd be a fine little backwoods cruiser

    What kind of water forging can you do with 2WD? Maybe through town after a good rain:grin:

    As soon as I saw that truck, Buzz Lightyears words went through my head..

    "You're a strange little man (insert "truck") , ...... and you have my pity"

    Umm ... is it just me, or is the roof rack and the brushguard made of, say, conduit, threaded together?

    I laughed so hard the first time that I saw it that I didn't even notice, but I think that you are correct. Must be more rust resistant for all of the deep water fording.

    Probably used conduit so they wouldn't rust as easy, during the water fording. :D

    Military/Safari.

    Wouldn't make it too far trying to do either.

    Maybe he could use it to save the GI-Joe POW.
