The underside was so stunning they couldn't take a picture and comes with authentic gearstick rust.

If I had the cash, I would do it.

So presumably they run the rear diff from the top PTO output. I would have done that chop job a bit more elegantly and the hi-lo shifter is on the other side of the tunnel by look of it.

Now, if they got hold of a Thomas lower PTO output and hooked up a PTO winch... :wink:

Of course, I haven't got the cash :roll:

Don't know whether this has anything to do with it but, according to the CLR article, it was originally built LHD and converted to RHD in 1995.

Yes it may. I did wonder if that was the case because the CDL switch is also on the wrong side.
