What you say about the truck

I totally understand if the answer is no since I can only dream of owning a truck this nice but do you have any video of it at all? This is by far the coolest truck I have ever seen. Everyone is doing the coe but this blows them out of the water. Never will you see anything like this at a show. I have a old REO I am trying to piece together on a newer chassis to do the same thing but this thing is way above anything I ever thought of. Don't know ...
