    Default Does this sweet M813A1 RV belong to a member?

    A friend sent me this random photo and I want to find out more about the truck. It looks like the real deal and not photoshop.

    I was thinking the same thing. I'm guessing it's turbo'd given the large hood scoop and passenger side air cleaner and with the US flag on it I'm wondering if it has ever been on US roads - that would be a wide load for sure.

    The truck is in Las Cruces, NM. I pass by it almost everyday and I can tell you for sure it’s not photoshop. It’s one mean looking truck for sure!

    Have either of you quizzed the owner on what all they've done to the truck?
    This is fun that people personally know of this truck...

    I never met the owner, the truck is always just there and never seems to move. It has been a few years since I lived there though.

    Check out how far the rear budd wheels are. Do you think it has the hubs flipped and is still dualled?
