Yes it was a get together they had way back. Just curious if they still get together or if the pinzies have since changed hands.

I am sure Andre will provide a list of features on Jim's W.

I know this truck pretty well. First off, Jim was EXTREMELY
meticulous at maintaining his trucks and a perfectionist at
doing add-ons/upgrades the right way.

This is a 2.7L, TD Tranie (decent HWY but still good on the trail.
Winch bumper ala Fat Fab and done the right way with winching force
low near the throat of the front pin. Jim added a 24V HUMVEE
compressor in the Battery bay, he was always one of the first to be
aired up even with 6 tires. Solar panels for the 12V aux power, a
lot more features as well.

This is an exceptionally good truck.

That’s a premium rig that was maintained and upgraded to exacting standards
RIP Jim
I will miss all his help and valuable advice/experience

Ramona Motors hasn't had Pinzgauers for at least 12+ years. Most of those pictures are at least 10 years old.
