Ditto, more pics please.

Also can you put names to faces in the group photo. (for those of us on the left coast.)

Finally, what a perfect way to end the nightmare with a fairy tale ending.

I think Will should start a new thread. The truck has considerable patina as a result of its expedition use but also has some pretty cool mods. It will be cool to see what he does with it.

This has been like watching a Hallmark movie! With some John Grisham and Touched By an Angel mixed in. I smell a movie deal.

Kudos as well to all the people who stepped forward to help Will with their knowledge and experience. This success was a true team effort.

My vote is for Denzel Washington to play Will! Danny Devito as Aarron Richardet, Kevin Hart as Darren Smith... Julia Roberts as Jennifer Brinkley

To bad Michael Landon is dead, He'd have played a good Will, right down to the halo. Catherine Hepburn would have made a good Jennifer. That's a strong willed woman with a heart of gold. Sean Penn as the misguided DHS Special Agent

Conan O'brien as UncleDouggie... But if John C Riley plays me then a Will Ferrell would complement him as UncleDouggie..

I have been out of touch for couple of weeks, this has turned into a fantastic story, thanks to the Defender of the Defenders, and to all for helping out.

Name of the movie, Stick it up the Gman

Doug and Jennifer were the heavy lifters in the procurement of the truck!

We also need someone as bumbling lawyer from Land Rover, plus Federal DA and Federal armed swat team troopers. For a little comedy The Duke boys as tow truck drivers.

Well done! I had been wondering how the owners were going to thank Will for his diligence. There couldn't be a more perfect gift for him. The knight now has his white horse.

No joke, Will was telling me last night a couple of the seized trucks were completely destroyed by DHS contractors. That's his next battle.

Looks like a job for Jason Alexander as LRNA lawyer or head of LRNA Task Force.
A group like those in the police academy movie could fill the agent roles.

Define destroyed or would that jeopardize the case to share any real info?
