Tray back, purpose built for Winch Challenge competition. Function over form, as it should be.

Is that a terrain master winch bumper?

As you know I'm deeply suspicious of any truck that doesn't align age wise with it's paperwork.

Anyone buying such a truck should be fully aware of the details and history of the donor vehicle.

That's just practical advice not aimed at the Copley truck which I'm sure stands the scrutiny that supports their reputation.

Are you talking about the one on my RRC? No, it's home built, inspired by some pics I saw on the Devon 4x4 website.

So that's an actual Rover...just came across the pics with no frame of reference. Did think it was interesting...though aesthetically was something I hadn't seen before. Was this a production model? Or just something that was tweaked aftermarket?

Maybe this one will redeem my post. Sweet trunk:

Update: just found this link (http://www.okoffroad.com/okrovers/ar...orestrover.htm). Couldn't believe they only sold 9 vehicles before it was taken off the market...that's some kind of record I think (not in a good way).
