There was a major article done on this truck, but I do not remember where. I have it saved on my computer at home and will post it when I get home if someone hasn't beaten me to it.

That rig is one of Jeremiah's employee's rigs, IIRC.

I believe the articel was by Chris Marzonie of Overland Journal. It is a great article. I will post it when I can.

John Brasier who works/worked at Proffitt's drives one just like it, but his was covered in stickers the last time I saw it, and (like this one I assume) is actually reconstructed on an FJ62 frame and registered as such. (Note the 6 lug axles rather than 5 lug.)

I believe this is the one Jeremiah built.....it was then sold to Greg Miller of the Miller Group (ie: Miller Motorsports Park, the Utah Jazz, American Toyota, and other failed ventures....haha)

Greg liked the rig so much, he then purchased Proffitts :)

Greg and I spoke before he purchased it...I believe my purchase advice was along the lines of "it's worth whatever Jeremiah is asking for it"...

My HZJ75 is at Proffitts now...I can only hope it turns out half that nice...

All 75's have 6 lug nuts as standard, they changed to 5 in 1998 when the 79 came out. I think its a real 75 with a made up tub.

This is mine when i bought it last year, its a 1998. The picture in this write up was what convinced me to get one. I have been buying parts ready to fit so mine is similar. Changed my mind since but will be adding stuff when it warms up over here in England, so about July.... :)

This is not the answer I was hoping for as to the owner I'd be making an offer to - so basically a guy worth a few hundred mil, great ;)

Thanks for the intel - I'll keep dreaming but if you do know Greg and he wants to sell, tell him you know of a random ih8mud member interested :p

Trust me. I know of at least 2 people within the Miller Organization who would be first on the list.

One of them can afford it, the other can't.

Yes, That truck is in Greg's day garage at the track. Along with a bunch of other assorted Cruisers and a Ford GT.

Yep you are right. I was thinking about the HZJ79 that john at Proffitts has and got confused.

Ain't going to happen. As other fellow LHM employees have mentioned, that factory 1998 HZJ75 belongs to the boss man himself. It is one of his favorites and I don't think he ever plans on getting rid of it.

However, we would be happy to build you a 79 series if you like. Call for details. 1-877-PROFFITT
