I purchased this rig from another member here in 2018. Purchased in Key West Florida, and drove home to New York. It’s been dead reliable ever since.

Mostly stock outside, with the addition of a Prinsu roof rack and Viper4x4 running boards, the truck sits on 315/75R16 Cooper Discoverer SST tires with a 4” lift.

The body is clean, with no rust*, the paint looks great but is not perfect after almost 25 years of use.

*A small amount of rust has been found on the driver side rocker panel. See below.

The vehicle runs and drives excellent. No check engine light.

The engine runs great, and besides regular oil changes, I've had to do very little to the engine.

The transmission shifts smooth with no slipping. Mobil 1 in all the cases and gears.

There is a fair amount of custom work done to the inside of the rig.

The build out is modeled somewhat after the Goose Gear Ultimate Chef and Sleeping Package. I removed the rear carpet and driver side rear seat and built a plywood floor with modular storage box behind the remaining passenger side rear seat, which makes a great sleeping platform. Reflectix insulation was also added under the plywood floor and in the wall cavities. The build uses all 1/2" Baltic Birch with clearcoat. The tailgate also has the same birch plywood installed to replace the original carpeted panel. The storage box is removable with 8 bolts for a full width floor. The entire plywood floor and seat delete can quickly be returned to carpet and seats reinstalled with a handful of bolts. Second and third row seats are are available and included in the sale.


Since owning I’ve replaced the following parts:

Upgraded and extended battery cables from HuddExpo

Blue clutch fan modified by Wits End

New (uninstalled) door limit straps for both driver side doors

OEM front brakes- pads and rotors

Viper4x4 running boards

Prinsu roof rack

Pioneer stereo with Bluetooth, remote, Android Auto, reverse camera

Front seats replaced with Audi power seats which is a huge improvement (still have stock seats)

Exhaust was replaced from manifold back with a stock exhaust from California which is in great shape with no leaks, rattles or holes.

New Door seals, window seals -all 4 doors

Woolwax applied to frame and drivetrain every fall since owning

LED bulbs throughout the inside

Hexomat floor mats in front
It's been a great vehicle. I hate to let it go, but it's time for someone else to enjoy it, rather than it sitting in my driveway.

Asking $15,500, ready to drive anywhere. Message me here through PM.

I see you note "Front seats replaced with Audi power seats which is a huge improvement (still have stock seats)", just curious if that also includes the second and third row of seats as well.
Yes, I have all the seats still. They're stored high and dry in by basement. Thanks for the question, I'll edit the post to include that.

Can you clean this area up and repost it? Looks like possible rust corrosion cracks. How does the backside of this area look? Sorry if that seems petty. Being from West Texas, I get easily spooked by rust. It’s still a beautiful rig though. Thanks

Can you confirm what I’m assuming. The paint is lifting due to rust underneath? Looks like some has already been eaten and fell away. Salt life is rough. That’s sucks. This rig looks awesome otherwise! Thanks

Sorry for the delay. I spent my weekend putting a new furnace in the house and didn't have daylight to check this out. What you're describing is not at all what is happening. No idea why it looks like this in the pictures, and I'm having a hard time getting a picture that doesn't look this way. Here's a different angle. Nothing eaten away and the other side to compare.
