This car used to be old police car here in Iceland from 1987, after it service was over the car went inside for storage for about 17 years.

In 2011 it came out looking like this, but I did not make the modification to this truck. It was done by some guys and then another one came to finish it and on and on as it normally goes for this modifications here in Iceland. But today the car is mine and I have few things I like to change and add to it as well.

Cummins 5.9L 12V with lucas Cav DPS and Holsten H1 turbo
NP 205 transmission for 4x4 and mixed from NP 203 extra low gear
No spin front and back (I think I will replace that)
