I have just seen about 100 pictures of these vehicles in Iraq taken by a friend who just got back from the sandbox. He is a NAVY E.O.D. Master Chief who has been to Iraq and the Stan 6 times in the past 4 years. The past 2 tours his teams were attached to a the Marines and these vehicles were what they used. Unfortunately their only fatality was in one of these vehicles when it detonated a very large IED. The MRAP was flipped upside down and one of the NAVY E.O.D. specialist was thrown from the rear of the vehicle and hit the front windshield, killing him instantly. The rest of the team who were wearing their seat restraints, were not injured. The MRAP was righted and some minor repairs were made. The vehicle was back in service the next day.
My friend Bill will be retiring in a couple months after putting in 30. I would like to build one of these for him. Would you let me know when and how I could purchase one of these?
