Yes, and I think I got the last one he had. Originally I was looking for a scope for my son's 308 but I went with a less expensive Leupold for that. This VX6 will go on my wife's 25-06.

GOOD Guy to deal with...kae006

kae006 is gold in my book. Bought a scope from Keith and had it in my hands almost immediately. USPS was pretty slow with getting my check to Keith, but he was super cool about it. Thanks, Keith!

I'd nix the top rack. What would you want to carry way up there? If you change the bumpers, hang on to the originals. Put a cargo mat in the back area, and get a good hitch carrier.
