181 bids and sold for $28,500, puts that on the wish list for me, definitely not the buy list :popcorn:
I was hoping a person having experience with this rig would chime in an volunteer some FYI. I watched a DoD video about it but felt, this is nothing other than a high cost taxpayer funded failure offering any real use.

Oh well?

Years ago, when GM sold the full size versions in Hollywood California I went and drove a fully loaded version. The luxury models.

Just setting in it going down the city street was horrid. 8 feet wide did it for me. I got out, let the sells guy take the drivers seat. Narrow city streets filled with parked vehicles on both sides then, an oncoming car.

NOPE.

The right passengers side firewall offered nothing to comfortable feet placement.

It took us a long time trying to negotiate our way back to the dealership.

Yeah, I've watched the Growlers a few times for a decent buy... They all seem to go for mid $20's and that is too much for one of those in my opinion.
