    If this is for just one season use can I put my name in for when they sell it off? Your list reads like my wish list, even with an 80 to begin the dream. so the least I can do is subscribe and keep the dream alive...

    Thanks for the winter reading.

    Cool build for sure. What's the trucks intended use? Seems like a ton of drive train beef up and big tires for an expedition sort truck.
