Nobody here is stupid enough, or rich enough, to spend that much money on a toy! If I had that much to spend on a toy I would buy a Razor!!!

And how much did he pay for them? Each. When they first went up for sale they were going at or above the asking price for new Razors. And a Razor will do a LOT more than a Growler and it will do it with a LOT more comfort. Again, if I am spending upwards of 25,000.00 for a toy that you cannot even drive on the road then I am not buying a surplus military vehicle! I am buying something new and with factory support. And a ton of aftermarket support for that matter, the Razor is the AR-15 of the off road world.

checked the Idaho Motor Pool website, the longer wheelbase version looks pretty cool to me. Overall however, this little truck seems to be absolutely over-engineered. Way too complicated for what it need and can do.
