Gunnison, CO sighting

Saw this on the road and then later at the grocery. Couldn't locate owner. Nice setup. Does anyone recognize the license plate?

Painted over galvanized cappings missing a rivet and the ghetto trailer wiring too. Still way nicer than mine.

That's Chris Vitale's truck - not built by ECR; built by Chris and Randy - Tdi Guy

Build thread is in the truck build ups section. Awesome truck.

It's embarrassing you guys don't remember this truck. Second page in the truck build-ups section.

LHD "dormobile" with Swiss plates?

Doesn't Chris live in Joisey?

Seeing his truck in Rockland would be a huge coincidence!

Full galvanized chassis. Look at Tdi Guy's thread on his own trucks, too. Really impressive work.

Correct...I've seen this truck in person, when it was under construction at Randy's. It really is amazing, they built Chris' and Randy's truck from the ground up piece-by-piece. Saw it with my own two eyes back when (surprise) Pedro had me drop off a set of springs to Randy (which I actually think were Goose's).

Take your pick all factory fresh waiting for the ship, and a nicely setup landcruiser.
