Modified Wildcat rig in the wild

Was working in West Virginia this week and came across this "highly modified" Wildcat rig on top of ridge. Really poor road conditions getting up there and back down. Looks like has been there for a LONG time. Wonder if they have a rodent problem or not??

I can't believe they let it out of the factory like that.

Thats a new FR, prior to the PDI. Just a bit of warranty work and it will be ready to go.

Looks like they deleated the ac unit and roof vents, and added the highly sought after "Flo Thru Ventilation System". Great for those camp grounds where no power is available.
Also got rid of those silly frameless windows and used some that will actually let some air in.

That pic was probably taken AFTER the Goshen Rally, and after the repairs.

It's not a FR problem, it's a component manufacturer problem.
