Non-warranty modifications

The locking chain appears to be going through bullet holes. Easy way to drill I suppose.

Not equipped

The passenger side doors are equipped with the optional Master Lock accessory. Oddly enough, the driver's side, not so.

Unsecured cargo

Presumably the teacup and the mess of framing nails will be stowed somewhere other than the running board once they embark to the next camp. How are they gonna keep that battery from flying off at the first sharp left? Or shorting out, when they remove the padlock and open the front passenger door?
