Never saw the TV show.

These trucks (yes there is a soft top as well) are owned by the Jack Wills Company, a clothing store. They use the trucks for promoting the company here in the US.

I've yet to see a "wrap" that doesn't look like ass.

Oh, I was wrong, thought it was a TV show. Guess it is just the English version of JCrew or Abercrombie and Felch.

They have Foley plates. Likely sold by Foley, but not built, as Foley typically builds way better than these look. These are just very used trucks. Nothing really built about them. They currently need to be rebuilt after a few summers on Nantucket.

I would assume your time/expertise is not cheap. Wouldn't it be cheaper for the company to sell those 2, and import or buy two already imported, than have you guys rebuild them? Are they at your facility to be rebuilt?

No, they were not/are not here for restoration. The hardtop had an issue that various shops have been tossing money at (new injectors, new turbo, etc etc.) and it was just here for us to sort that issue while the company was doing promotion at a local event:

Problem: Clogged fuel pick filter. Came in this morning and is now back on the road.

I would be so torqued if a shop billed me for replacing injectors and a turbo, when it was the pickup!
