Default suprise in my parking lot

Customer pulled up to my shop in this rig this morning. At first glance I thought it was a Unimog, but it is a brand new Kenworth with a 4x4 conversion and full global expedition buildout. Guy was getting ready to hook it to his 35' boat and head for Baja California. Though I'd share. He was in a hurry so I didn't get to look inside, but he said it had a garage for a side by side in the back.

This is the first KW I have seen done by GXV. I always enjoy seeing their builds, thanks for sharing!

love these things....but always wonder how practical they are from an RPM (and MPG) perspective on the interstate.

love all the LED lights!

That is way cool. No cares for practicality Don! It's like all the people driving H1's around Beverly Hills. But I bet this guy actually does take that thing on some rough roads.

How do you think he gets a sidexside in that garage?

I didn't see it open, but the rear door hinge was at the top, so I'm guessing pull out ramps, throttle, and balls.
