Nicest one I have seen there. Probably 65,000 to win? I seen a bunch of black ones thru the fence and complete armored ones. Probably some really nice stuff coming up end of the year.

I personally wouldnt buy it. I dont like huge tires and body lifts that lose the airlift hooks. Or the running boards. Or the brush guard that blocks the headlights. Or the wipers on the wrong side. Or....
I think that is from a private party selling on gp. Or from one of these companies that flips these.

I saw that. What I want to know is how they are fitting 42" tires on the Rhino carrier. The website says it will only fit 38" tires, and people have said you can't access the ratchet mechanism from the tire side if the tires are too big, so you can't get it up past the lip on the bumper that holds it in place. I have 40" tires and want to make one of those work.

I do kinda like the tires but not the other stuff you mentioned. I would rather have the one I’m waiting for and make it like I want it. 1” body lift is my max and I have never liked them on anything. Tires are probably 2” bigger than my liking. But clean truck

Looks like 3” body lift and probably 2” spring spacers

You just bought it. Why are you selling it so soon? I like it
Honest truth is I bought it without asking wife. She wasn’t happy about it but said I can keep it for up to a year, fix it up, and then part ways with it. I agreed to that option rather than getting a vasectomy for a second time. It’s been a bucket list to work on a car. I guess I can cross it off my list.

Good for you. I found out that wives are temporary and Humvees last forever. Probably could have 10 if I had back what it cost to get rid of her. Lol

I saw that too, my first thought was why will an EUC be needed for something that has already OBVIOUSLY been in civilian hands???
Does look like an outstanding ride...
I could not believe some bozo from GP put a sticker right on the damn hood, after a few months waiting on the EUC and that will not come off gracefully!!

All those little things are easily fixable. Pop the wipers off and move em, chop the legs of the brush guard and extend them, same with the lift points.

I know how they fit 42" tires on the truck. I want to know how they are making a Rhino tire carrier work with that size tire.
You can remove the tire before you raise or lower the lift....😄

Or, you may be able to take the lift apart and turn out the top part and turn in the bottom part , to move the ratchet further down the arm. But there may not be enough thread to do this.
