    More than likely.

    I think I'll end up taking a more overland, minimalist approach with this one.

    Gotta figure out an old lady name to give her.

    Not yet.

    It's dark when I go to work, it's dark when I get back to work. Plus I left it at the dealership overnight.

    Has one tiny little chip on the leading edge of the hood, and one little smudge in the driver's head light lens.
    Has an old-mannish diamond deck toolbox in the back that will be removed immediately.

    Stock other than that. 31k on the clock.

    I think it was driven by the dealers mostly.

    It's been in Vegas 3 times, Missouri, Illinois, and Colorado too... all in two years. :eek:

    I did bust out the 6 D-cell Maglite, crawled under it in the dark, and gave the frame a nice looking at.
    No rust, minimal scraping, carrier bearing looks good, t-case appears trouble free.
    Salesman thought that was odd, told him it wasn't my first rodeo.

    4H and 4L engaged smoothly with just the typical little thud when reverting back to 2H.
