  1. This is a bullshit money grab
    these trucks were put out of production because the contract was given to another vendor for an entirely different vehicle

    I smell an under the table deal

      1. Definitely not worth that much
        To be honest they are and were a huge POS the day they started making them

        Under powered over weight under engineered piles of crap
        With an aluminum body

        I know a few Army mechanics that still laugh at these

  2. 11.8 mil.

    And the muthfkers don’t even have a toilet built in them.

    I would think at least the drivers seat would have one.

    That way when he/she yells oh sht…from an IED you can identify them.

    Because his/her azz chunks will/ won’t have a ring around the collar.

    And now a word from our sponsors.

  3. Well let’s see, that would be $11,800,000. divided by 60 =196666.6666666667 Lot’s of 6’s in this equation,coincidence?

    For an additional million they could put shitter’s in them. I say let them spend away- that is corporate debt not mine.I consider it odious debt when they point their finger at me and say your household is responsible for X amount of that debt.Corruption abounds and knows no end. Oh well just another day on Earth.
