I know the Baha is no longer being built, but I have been seeing them "resurface" lately. My buddy has a business next to a used Truck Dealer and there is a Silver Baha on his lot.

It also had a few other cool features. Like ; you can drive with the tailgate lowered. To keep the cops happy, the license-plate bracket is hinged so you can flip the plate down and stay legal.

It has a ground clearance of 7.3 inches, a towing capacity of 2400 pounds, and a pickup bed that is only 41.5 inches long.

Front-wheel-drive Mavericks have 8.3 inches of ground clearance, and all-wheel-drive versions have 8.6. Bed length: 54″

The Baja had a Turbo and N/A option for the engine, but only came in AWD.

I always liked the Baja.

I wanted a Baja for a while. Ugly as sin, but pretty much covers all my needs. And I like unusual vehicles that don't just blend in.

At one time, I was really thinking about getting a Baja despite all the plastic trim it had. Then I saw the price and bought a utility trailer instead.

The silver one I saw, didn't stay there long. When I went back to ask his price, it was gone. I wanted to see what they were going for locally and compare it carvana or carmax.
