My new D90

I finally picked up one of my new 90's thursday. It took a week to close the deal but I love my new truck. It was owned by a guy named Alton Brown who is on TV. I did not know who he was and only met his wife and assistant. Come to find out he is a TV chef and went to GA Tech. I did notice a Big difference between my old 2000 TD5 110 and the 94 D90 but thats OK. It came with a brand new Badger top which I have had off all weekend. Here are a few pictures without the top. I am going to make a few changes. I am adding boost wheels, ARB bumper and maybe a new Puma hood but may not. Drove it all weekend with the wife and son. He loves it but cried about the 110 being gone. He would prefer for me to have 5 of them. Now I am waiting on the one that Stephen at Safari is building me. It is a Hard top 95 that has been rebuilt from the ground up. That one I will have to figure out how to justify two trucks with my wife. If anyone is interested in the wheels or brush guard let me know. Thanks for listening.

Haha yeah nice - Alton Brown had had his truck on the show Good Eats multiple times over the years. I may have even listed a picture of it in here at one point.

LRF had a picture of it a few years ago.

I have seen that on TV. It looked really clean. I think it was sold by bear valley sometime in the past. I think the puma hood is silly and would keep what you have (if for no other reason that old paint and new paint are hard to match and fade at different rates).
