What was yours?

Mine was the 1997 Dodge T-Rex. 6x6 monster that was just all kinds of awesomeness. I remember seeing this truck in person at 12 years old thinking it was the coolest thing I had ever seen before. Yes I know we have the Merc 6x6 now, but that thing cost about $600,000 more than the T Rex would have.

They even took one to Moab
