Was he one of the Village People? The lumber jack?


Battery switches tell me that it probably has electrical issues (IE a dead short that drains the battery).
Does it have a title? He doesn't even know what year it is.

"Solid frame" is a generic term for not wanting to be specific about the condition of the frame usually. I personally consider any type of welding on a chassis as a repair, and would then call it a repaired chassis. It could be a bubblegum patch quilt type chassis and some still for some reason call it solid, though I guess it could be clean and original too you never know. Ask specific questions to the seller, and keep checking in here.

"It has achieved minor fame by being featured in Zombie Nation magazine in 2012 as "The Ultimate Bug Out Vehicle."

Ohhhhhh, that Zombie Nation magazine...why didn't you say so?!

Between that line, and the photo of Paul Bunyan Jr., this guy deserves a kick right in the nuts.

No signs of oil leaks anywhere. Time to refill.

Series three with after market grill. Copious amounts of after market rewiring. Just look at all the instruments

If you 'buy it now', demand the Banana Republic (Lumberjack) outfit, with matching purse and boots.

If you don't, you'll never be able to bug out when the zombies attack.

And of course, he had to get the shotgun stock in that photo too. We need to start a new thread for "Defender and Series Posers".

Thats some solid prepper stuff right there....keeping a handcuff key just in case (since many handcuffs share common keys to allow departments/agencies to transfer restrained persons between each other without changing out cuffs. )

I personally have one sewn into the inside of my mouth....let's me cough it out for those possible detention scenarios.
