Sorry to see it go Chris, you put a lot of effort, time, and care into that truck. I'm sure the new owner will be happy.

I saw it driving by Rocky Mountain Cruisers last week (my drive home from work takes me by there)... it's a gorgeous truck. The new owner should be very happy.

I did know you were selling her Chris. Sorry to hear you sold it but it seems to be a pattern lately. I keep wondering if I should rebuild mine as the 80 is just too comfortable to drive on the trail. But I'm sure Bridger would drive it if I ever do rebuild.

Sorry to hear it Chris but it looks like she got a very nice new home. Is the new owner going to join the club?
