LHD Tithonis

Hi!
I saw this truck on eBay. I'm interested and I definitely want LHD. The price seems high. Anyone have any thoughts? Is LHD worth $20k more than RHD?
Thanks!

I wouldn't be surprised that you think it's expensive considering it's for sale from a Maserati dealership. Why not just reach out to BOBCAT110 here since it looks like he sold them that truck anyway.

I saw this sold - I'd figured you'd bought it.

3300 original miles, if true, would certainly increase the value significantly.

depends on whether you factor in the miles it had before the Tithonus program or not.

I agree, but are those original miles or miles since the refurb?

Derek - Do you have pics of this particular ex-mod on your website, or a for sale thread on DSource? Interested, but can't find any detail on the truck.

The odometer on ex mod trucks are replaced all the time. You can not believe what they say.

This might be a dumb question....
Can you mount a roof rack on the fiberglass shell and have it supported by the roll cage?
Thanks!!!

I'd be concerned with cracking the fiberglass

It can be done. I did it on my soft top. Or you can do it like the MOD on the hard top Wolfs

On the Tithonus trucks the top of the gel top almost sits on the roll cage so the cage would actually support the weight. I bet if you called Frontrunner they could put something together for you.

This is along the lines of what I was thinking if/when I pull the trigger on a roof rack. Use the JK rails for the back portion of my top (making sure the feet are positioned over the roll bars) and then tie into my cross bars up front.
