Interesting one for Sale on Ebay--the Safari Gard

Thought this was of note...

According to the listing:

How many times is he going to list that thing before he realises that he is not going to get more than $40-$45K TOPS. I love the truck and have seen it up close it is bad ass, but how much would someone really pay for a abused D-90.

You never know.. someone out there might be willing to pay for it. I assume that since they keep holding the high price, they really dont NEED to sell it. However, they would GREATLY improve their odds if they tear the rusted, banged up sliders and bumpers off and put new ones on. Also replace the missing lights. For $60K+, I would not expect hammered bumper and sliders no matter how fixed up.

Well last time it was on ebay the highest bid was at $48K+ which is a great deal I think. He has a nice truck and I agree with you Chris about fixing it up a little, if I ever want a top $$$ for mine I would fix it up before I sell it.

He should have taken the $48K (which didnt even meet the reserve the last time btw) and run.
