This is a beautiful build. I've seen it. Seller is a real stand-up guy too. Looks pretty well priced to me.

As Steve says Jay Sevigny's truck. Bed was built by Waylon Long (2L Custom Trucks) and modified by JW Morgan. Sad to see Bluenoser (Jay) is selling. Wish him the best.

While I would stop short of saying that's a smokin' deal, the price is very attractive. You can't buy a good truck and convert it for what he's asking.

 

Someone who's on the fence should grab this one.

This is the 2nd truck I herd JW worked on after being built by 2 L.

Was it a up grade or a fabrication problem?

Combination of both. JW first got it because Jay dropped his trailer out of his hitch and it rode for a while suspended from the back plate of the bed. JW repaired that and as a tribute to the fab, the back plate held the trailer from separating from the truck for couple hundred miles. He also modified the side panels for access and beefed it up a bit if I recall.

Darn, I could put my series Land Rover on the back....... however, that would put me at 80 (EIGHTY) feet LOA...... there's a few places we go I would NOT get in to.... (Barely get in to them with my one ton dually.) Whatever I get will have to be a short nosed, short singled beast.

I wondered what happened to Bluenoser. He used to be regular here, but I hadn't seen anything from him in a long time. Anybody know what's up or why he is selling?

Didnt he have a bunch of maintenance issues with his truck? I maybe incorrect but I thought he ran into a bunch of expensive problems a few years ago?

He did while in or going to Canada. Was his Freedomline transmission. To my knowledge they were all corrected.

I believe his problems were a mis-diagnosed oil leak, from the tranny. Many shops and $$$$ later, someone knew what it took to fix correctly.
