Help me ID this truck!
 
My brother and I were returning from Vegas and saw this thing in the economy lot at DIA. Alaska plates. Looked like a mashup of old and new. Icon suspension, looked like a Tacoma chassis with a body I've never seen. Anyone have an idea what this is? We were nerding it up pretty hard drooling over it.

Basically a new Tacoma shortened at both ends for shipping container fitment.

What an unbelievable thread. I would love to meet that guy. How wild that the truck is at DIA right now?

RainKurt. He knows all.

I PM'd him on Expo to see what he's doing in town.

Wow, what and awesome find! The vintage tail gate graft, the 80 lights, the custom work, wow, just wow. Not a lot of trucks like that on the road, that expo thread is incredible.

Looks like the "finished" pics were taken in Boulder.

Thanks, Kurt! We were pretty stumped last night. Figured someone would know. I want one.

Talking to him on Expo. Invited him to the 2/5 meeting and if not that lets see if we can arrange some other get together.

He - Karl - hopes to make the 2/5 RS meeting. Good spot Zach!

Way to go team! It's really cool that we reached out to him and he replied. I'm stoked to see it in person!
