    Saw one on the road for the first time the other day. Kind of cool looking, I thought. The wheels look enormous on it though.

    I sat in one at one of my customer's warehouses. It was getting ready to be shipped overseas, so no driving for me. :hs:

    Nice car, but I HATE the front grill on that thing. :mad:


    Oh, and the rear reflectors and reverse lights are straight off the GMC Envoy. :mamoru:
