Is It Worth It?

It depends on the individual but if you ask us it’s definitely worth the price to have an absolute unit of a vehicle. Other cool features that might help push your decisions include a roof escape hatch, encase you need to get out quickly or end up on the side. You also have reverse sensors and reverse cameras so that’s your blind spot covered, but even if you reverse into something, I’d be more worried about what you hit. It has internal air compressors, a winch and fox shocks. If this seems like your kind of ride, it’s up for auction on Collecting Cars. A fully online auction.
