That is exactly what I said when I saw your Video " OB rig Walk Around" on You tube for the first time. My guess is they were separated at birth  :-O

Nice truck, similar to my build over all.

Just out of curiosity, why did you paint the roof Matte Black? Im doing everything I can to minimize heat gain on my truck, as my kids still occupy the second and third rows, and they complain pretty seriously in the summer.

hi mellowdave. so sorry for my late reply. I like the rough look and in summer when we go out, roof rack is full of gear. sleeping platform inside, at night, open windows and put a home made screen on the sunroof. when family is camping, we sleep out on a tent.

Nice 80... Im guessing you're located on LI due to the great picture of the Montauk lighthouse.
