We've found an amazing base vehicle, a 2004 Isuzu NPR-HD crew cab. A rare find to begin with, getting one in this shape is super-lucky! 

What a beauty! It was only driven on Sundays by a little old Garblat to go to Space Church...

These diesel Isuzu trucks are the backbone of the commercial delivery business, so parts and repair know-how are common and easy. A critical need for a base vehicle! A crew cab is a rare find, an HD (able to carry and pull extra weight) is even rarer, and it not being totally driven into the ground even more refined yet. A box-free, chassis-only model is a sign from the Space-Gods that we are on the right track here. A huge shout-out to All American Truck for this great find!
