Cool 2a/90 Trail Rig

Looks like a 2a on a D-90 chassis. Who owns this rig?

don't know if we're all talking about the same person, but I thought it looked somewhat similar to this (was the first truck that came to mind) but I think this guys is from VA. Not the same truck it looks like, but looks womehat similar.

Stumbled on it in Google. Looks to be the Florida LR Club's Fall Rally of 2011:

Yeah I know - I was saying it was the first truck that came to mind when I saw his photo!

Wasn't this Julian's rig in the Gumball run a few years ago?

Those are pics of VanCurens truck. Don't think his has ever been that muddy. Definitely not the same truck as the one in the original post.

If this rig needs a name, it has the making for "Swamp Thing" written all over it.

Russell, that one is owned by Gordon Turner. I can give you his contact info if needed (my brother is a member of the FLRC). HE built it himself, but that's all I know.

Ed, there is one clean pic early on in that album. Appears to be rattle can grey.
