    Hi, my name is Kris! I'm new to the community but I've been into overland vehicles for a long time. I'm now finalizing my first real purpose build truck - a 1987 AM General Humvee with a create GM LS3 6.2L, Raptor Tan Bedliner paint, rood tent and much, much more. Looking forward to dive deep into this forum! Cheers!

    Hi, yes it's the M998 and the car war originally green camo CARC but the owner before me did a frame off restoration (except the engine) and painted the car in an ugly after market gloss tan color. I added the slantback and re-painted the entire car, inside and out in a tan flat Raptor Bedliner (see pic). IMG_3468.JPG

    Welcome to the forum from West Texas. What a fun looking vehicle build! I'm guessing you should be able to get just about anywhere in it.

    Hahahaha. I expect it would make that trip very fast! ... Very "James Bond-ish" though. :-)

    Your closest Director right now is @Polaris Overland. So if you need anything just message him on the forum.

    And yes as people are saying that is quite the beast. Good luck with the build.
