ARRIVED on June 20, 2012 at 11:11am. I not only have pictures of how it is strapped to the truck, but video coming off of the truck. I will also post pictures of how the vehicle and interior are protected on arrival. Absolutely NO DAMAGE on the vehicle, which is what I was praying for. Also, this vehicle is beyond what I imagined it would be.... can't wait to enjoy it when the paperwork is done! 26.4km on the odometer (now I will need to switch it to miles...lol)

:chug: :popcorn: :chug: :party: :chug:

Sad part is, probably even more posts about functions, photos, videos, etc....

Congratulations :chug:

Thanks, Rick!

Car Carrier photos and video

Serious Explorers,

Here are some photos of what your rig looks like on a car carrier, how it is secured and how it is protected when it arrives. I have also posted a video of a "walkaround" on the carrier and Storm Trooper coming off of the carrier. Hope you enjoy and learn a little at the same time! MANY more photos coming through the Pre-delivery process and beyond!
