Was going to say the same thing. I can't comment on value but I'm not sure I've met anyone that wouldn't be insanely happy to drive that truck.

Buy it, ship it to me and I will swap my freestyles for the boosts plus some cash. I will probably need to test drive for a bit to make sure the wheels are installed correctly.

Maybe I'm being picky here but that nerf bar side step down under the frame like that makes it look like it has a cheap body lift...

Not the most expensive. This one was more (image attached) it was an automatic and loaded with hunting gear.

Roll up doors on NAS 110s.
Beach Runners get split doors.

I do not check PMs. Call or email if you need something.

ECR is not a parts source. We are not in the mail order business.
