The webpage (http://www.fourfold.org/qrover80/yellowltwt/) with 40 + pictures of the truck is at


The first three pictures were taken at the Mid Atlantic rally in Virginia at the beginning of October , That is where the residual mud seen in the chassis pictures came from :-)
The rest of the pictures were taken yesterday

That looks like a solid truck at a good price.

How did you get the pickup top to line up? I ended up giving up on my lightweight because the doors wouldn't close with it. :( I didn't try too hard though.

And what make are those seats? They look comfy. :D

I ended up riding in a line with this truck at MAR and it was a good runner. Good luck with the sale.

How did I miss those red MAR stickers?

Glad you like them, I enjoy design these :thumb-up:. Unfortunately, they are limited editions. All registrants should have received one. [at least bump for a sale, kewl rig.]
