I've spoken to the owner of it a few months ago - Ben from Jackson Johnson - they had tried buying out Rover Accessories a few years ago but it didn't work out. This (as well as my own) is one of the many trucks RA outfitted over the years while it was in California.

He wanted a ridiculous amount of money for it - $50k!!! - I told him he'll probably end up selling it around $30k if he's lucky since among other things it doesn't even have a rear cage.

The search continues

I figured y'all would know about this one but once again the expert(s) continue to impress. The search continues but damn that yellow 1994 101stAirborne posted earlier with the missing tranny parts, etc., was in my town less than 10 miles from me.
Thanx again guys
