Looks like it’s made the big time

These, in the day when heaven was falling, The hour when earth's foundations fled, Followed their mercenary calling, And took their wages, and are dead.

Their shoulders held the sky suspended; They stood, and earth's foundations stay; What God abandoned, these defended, And saved the sum of things for pay.

The DOKA cab extension at Roberto's Shop, and before that, two of them on a flatbed at Todd's place.

Getting Press for that truck while it is on the Auction Block is a wise move. So far, it looks underpriced to me, but we all know how Auctions usually ramp up at the end.

85k is a good amount of savings on your typical U500NA which seem to not depreciate much at all. I’m sure it’ll spike at the end a bit since it’s so (so) rare and dude it’s a freaking unimog!

Correction : make that Three on the Trailer at Todd's Place, two of which made it to Roberto's shop.

Two above the pivot, and one coming off of the back, with a black tank in the middle.

I was pretty sure there were three out there initially, but I was told two, so I assumed that was correct....but ....it looks like three to me.

Each one is sitting on its pallet in a distinct way, and all facing forward.

Judging by the block arrangement, the knots in the wood (under front door seam, under door handle, two small ones next to each other on the forward block)) and the grey area on the rear block, one of Roberto's Cabs is the one on the forklift, and the other one is the one closest to the tank.

What a waste! Roberto could have picked up all 3 and made the first ever U500 Limousine with the 3 cab extensions and run a Hollywood service! Talk about missed opportunities.

Forgive me Unimog gods, for I have sinned, I don't photoshop, and I didn't know how to finish the back end (and the very rear set of steps are clearly, retractable )

I notice that the Cab Extensions fit the UGE cabs as well, so I'd assume either the back wall dimensions are the same, or they changed them as needed to fit up with the new cabs. I suspect the former.

It Is probably a Good Thing that Roberto didn't go down that path - Some Rapper would have busted caps at some other Rapper over who was first in line, or some other monumentally important thing.

Don't worry about the back steps - the people that get that spot are so cool, they just levitate into the garish purple crushed velvet lounge area.

I'm picturing a lot of monster energy drink logo jackets, flat brimmed hats, white sunglasses and "vapes"...
