Pretty damn clean truck, 160K miles, nice ramp truck setup.  Would be good if you had a show car/truck to haul around I guess; not much use as a race car hauler due to somewhat limited storage.  Power windows/locks and interior is in great shape.

Wish I had an excuse to own something like this.  Sharp hauler.

Yep!  I thought the lights in the deck under the car were a good idea, and the rear strap winches being pocketed is nice - I'd wonder how they perform in practice, though.  If they work without the straps sawing against the edge of the pocket, that's good.  The gooseneck ball near the end is interesting.  Filler necks near the edge of the deck seem good, though I'd prefer them to be on the bed sides where there's no chance of them being obstructed.  Probably not an issue, but you never know.  Also no chance of spilling fuel on the deck if they're side mounted.  A few more D-rings added would help with doing the 4-point tie-down like you see on rollbacks these days, for more flexibility.  Not really criticizing it as I think it's a neat truck and mostly I'm just spitballing ideas on a vehicle I haven't personally put to use, soooooo.... anyway I wish I could justify owning it; I'd be on my way to Dallas YESTERDAY!
