    Default Expeditions West Old Taco For Sale

    Ive decided to sell my Tacoma in hopes of moving into a Sportsmobile. For those not aware this was Scott Brady's truck which I purchased from him last year. The truck has performed flawlessly and I have ridiculously upgraded every system to the best possible standard. Thats my usual way of loosing money, I prefer it over the Stock Market/Real Estate method its much more satisfying. Someone will get a great truck extremely well equipped and maintained ready for a trip, and will benefit from a grossly over the top enhancement budget. The truck is very very custom and very well built.. I will begin to post pictures in this thread later tonight.

    Purchased last year by James Roy, at which time entire electrical & water system was significantly upgraded. In addition a custom roof rack was added, New Bed Cover and bed tool center/ electric center was added. A new rear swing gate was fabricated as well as many other misc details upgraded. Over $40k was spent on the custom overhaul of this vehicle after its purchase from Scott.. The fabrication is absolutely superb in every way.

    Just did $4000 in upgrades and services. Timing belt and full motor and fluids services, including diffs etc..

    Have many records and receipts, including original window sticker

    James,

    I'm looking forward to the photos. I hope you will take the time
    to fully describe the changes you made.

    How many miles on the truck today? With the bigger tires and
    regearing, is the odometer still accurate?

    Oh great, another ridiculously capable, immaculately prepared, grossly underpriced truck for me to drool over. I swear, if my car isn't waiting for me in the parking lot tonight, I'm going to sign the insurance check directly over to someone on this website.

    x2! Twice now this truck comes up for sale when I'm in no position to buy it. Sad.

    Nothing like taking a well prepped vehicle on a nice expedition to Central AMerica to teach you what features you 'really' want in your next ExPo rig. The Sportmobiles are certainly nice ☺

    Good luck with your sale and purchase.
