I have yet to see one in real life, but looking forward to it. Does anyone know if they have it at the San Jose Auto Show this weekend? Might be a reason to go.
thanks,
Daniel

No, looked for it yesterday but they did not have it there. Only thing of any interest there was the Jeep Lower Forty. Good thing tickets were only $4 because the show was not good this year. Much smaller than last year and they got rid of their little offroad driving course this year.

I was going to go to the Orlando show the weekend of Thanksgiving but looked at the exhibitor list before hand and decided it wasn't even worth the drive let alone the ticket price. Was very disappointed that Hummer wasn't even there :roll:

I saw several of them this weekend at the parker 425 pre-run. Two (I think) did the pre-run -- really nice. Gnarly course.

I have seen a couple. The local Ford dealer has one for sale. It's pretty cool looking for a truck.

My local ford dealer has one in stock. seems like every dealer gets the Orange one to display. Not crazy about the graphics. I guess its me but they look better in pictures and media then seeing one up front. To me it looks like a version of the Chevy
Zr-2 S-10 pkg. on steroids. If i had the cash for one i would buy a used H1 instead.

Totaled with less than 2K miles. I am sure his insurance company appreciates him.

I wonder if Ford wants to look at it to see what happened. I am guessing he took a massive jump or hit something that didn't feel like being moved.

I came close to getting a 6.2L in blue. They drive really nice, lots of elbow room, great visibility. It is really built tough.
I really need to save for my house, and not for another truck.

Maybe I will visit the idea again in the future.
