This is John Pulich’s rig for sale. John spared no expense last past year, in building one of the most capable trail rigs I have ever laid eyes on. Most of the work was done at Iron Pig Off Road, with receipts to prove. IPOR is willing to answer any “build specific” questions, but please email or call John or me first.

Truck originally came from AZ, but John purchased from it from someone in VA several years ago. The truck is currently in Lititz, PA and there is a possibility the truck could be delivered, within reason, for a fee. The truck is not currently inspected in PA.

The body is overall in good shape. There is some small rust around the outside of the doors (visible in pics). There are some spots where rust was repaired, and those areas are visible on close inspection. There are no major dents or dings. The paint is rough grade and looks ok… certainly adequate for a trail rig, but far from show quality. It is not a shiny finish, as seen in the pictures. The custom IPOR steel fenders are solid metal and you can see the weld beads along the gaps (think BEEFY). You can see from the pictures that a Full Metal Tech Roll Cage was integrated and attached to the frame (kudos to the crew at IPOR… really nice work).

The hard top is in fair shape and there is a sun roof.

You can see the IPOR custom rear bumper, along with spare swing out and jerry can holder.

IPOR custom sliders

The frame was treated at IPOR while undergoing build and is in good condition. The truck was washed just prior to these pics, so there are some drips... but they are only water!

John's 40

I can tell you that I have wheeled with John many times at both Paragon and Rausch Creek and ridden in his truck both before and after he had all the work done to it. It always started and ran well and since the mods were done it is quite the capable beast. Ironpig did all the mods and their workmanship is excellent. My two cents and a plug for a good guy, although I must say I'm sorry to see John parting with his 40. Shmukster
Thanks, Gary! This is such a nice rig, I am sure it would make John happy to see this go to someone here in the Northeast,
