Just to pitch in the Himalaya truck looked amazing and very clean as did the Icon truck just two different build styles. there is no question the Icon went a different route with a ton of custom built pieces. There were some crazy vehicles and some cool new products as well.

here are a couple more pictures that I thought were either interesting or just fun.

Digging the Willy's FC on tracks. The color isn't my thing, but man that would be fun to play with here on the farm.
The first car I bought myself was a 1963 Willys cj3b. Over the years also had a 67 Kaiser pickup, and an AMC J20.

The only appeal I've seen is the ability to pivot while on the truck to pour fluids.

That FC is Daystars and they make that two gallon fuel can designed to fit in your spare tire .
They also have storage unit same size , kinda cool units if you are stowing kerosene camp fuel etc that you don't want in your rig .

I believe doge was rated at 2000 HP.

The river raider was 4 wheel steering. I am not sure if second wheel was decorative or not.
i was so busy looking at the amazing metal work I neglected to look at the engine.

Thank you for the photos. I found a little write up on the Dodge.

That metal work is pretty amazing isn't it... but enough about them though...


Congratulations on your win. Well done!!

Finally home after cancelled flights. Too many fantastic vehicles. Here are a few more I appreciated for build quality and others just because they are beautiful.
