Now for the not so great... The paint is Viper Racing Yellow. The truck has minor scratches and blemishes. This truck is used and driven. The paint has never been color sanded or buffed. This is not a show truck. It is purpose built to be driven, used, & off roaded. All of the imperfections are minor and are purely cosmetic. I have done the best I can to give a true representation of the condition. This truck is ALWAYS garaged. It has not been wet in many years. I do not drive it in the rain. The interior is perfect for my use. I am not concerned with getting the interior dirty etc. But this truck is not a show piece. The money has been spent in places that make this truck a true daily driver, worry free, bullet proof work machine. I was never concerned with looking pretty. 

Finally, please do not contact me unless you are serious about purchasing. I am not interested in trades, opinions, or any other business ventures etc. This truck attracts a lot of attention. I ask that you please be courteous of my time and I will exercise mutual respect for yours. I am willing to negotiate cash offers only. Please be reasonable. The truck is offered at a price I consider fair considering the quality of the build and the money invested. If you have any questions, or would like to make an offer I will gladly help answer and consider. Thank you for taking the time to read and look.
