Same truck tonight. Carmine and Bleecker. Thank the Gf for this sighting, as she took the pic 10 minutes before I got out of the subway to meet her.

-----follow-up -----

Actually maybe it isn't the same truck. This new one looks like a 110, right??

Yesterday on the 405 in Orange County I saw two white SWs, one going each way within two minutes of each other

Going north:
arb, snorkle, black alloy wheels, sd rack

Going South:
beadlock wheels, sd rack

I saw a AA Yellow 97 D90 heading north on I25 in downtown Denver on Wednesday around lunch hour. Had Louisiana licenses plates.

Black D90 at LRN

Passed by this Black D90 with a bunch of SG mods in the back of LRN. Looks like it was getting a new winch installed. Kelly, any comments?

Saw this in Malibu.

It was a originally a copley truck with 11,000 miles on it. Now black, recaro front seats, auto, exmoor high back seats, black leather jump seats and looks like the rear door card is black too. All the lights are clear, some chrome here and there and the internal hoop has been removed. Oh and there is no headliner.

Also diamond plate to cover where there was a tire on the hood. I can think of another thread this should be in.

Stupid question...any idea what rubber he had on there? I run KM2s on Wolfs, but I have a set of Boosts that I want to put street tires on to swap out as needed.

I want to almost say it looks like it says "Michelin" in one picture.

You'd think that as he has 7k GBP front seats, he would at least have proper boosts ...

I saw this truck before all of this happened to it. It's definitely a travesty...some people are idiots.

I think this truck was 90k as it was basically as new, then from what I remember when I saw it apart, it got an auto conversion, disc brakes in the rear, and some other crap.

The auto and the brakes were well over 10k. I can only imagine the paint and what not.

175/500 was the 11K mile truck that was cherry.
I like it, other than the clear lights, little too "import racer" for me.
