    Here it is guys....

    Waaayy back in 2008 this majestic creature was rescued by a fellow mud member in central bc
    fj 45 lv, do i save it?
    It went to another member who parted another (can't find thread) and eventually sold it to me in 2010. Fast forward to spring 2016 I'm getting married, wife is knocked up and we need some cash. Truck is sold to another bc local received_10158143947645478.jpeg received_10158143947645478.jpeg

    Now last Friday happened....

    I'm stumbling through my early morning Facebook feed with a screaming newborn and what do I see. My lv is up for sale again.. but it's much different. I make a phone call directly and bypass all the internet crap and the truck is mine.

    Body work done and painted, running under its own power and soa. There is still a lot of finishing work to do but it's a million miles ahead when I last saw it 20170317_134916.jpg 20170317_134902.jpg 20170317_134934.jpg

    Congrats. That is one badass looking LV! Looks like your decision to sell it really paid off in the long run.
