Looks really rough for the mileage. Is that a missing tow hook on the passenger side up front? Is that a reclining bench seat mod? I wonder if it was a theft recovery and put back together?
Per the build sheet...


Its supposed to have a center console delete RPO 9N5.. The paint is supposed to be YELLOW RPO 50U.. Missing running boards RPO BVE.. and its a Government Vehicle RPO GAM!

And 1 tow hook per the build sheet too!

That might explain why it looks like the interior has far more wear than there should be for a 49k mile vehicle. I'm willing to bet it has very high engine hours. If it was a govt vehicle it probably has a LOT of engine idle time.

RPO 50U is Summit White. Might have been Border Patrol.

I suspect the front bumper was replaced by the current seller since the paint color doesn't seem to match the rest of the vehicle. A lot of the BP SUVs of that generation had the lower portion trimmed off and a custom skid plate added to increase the approach angle. Another clue is that the front left wheel well liner doesn't go down far enough to meet the bottom edge of the bumper.

Inside, the rear HVAC controls were moved to the metal plate on the roof to allow for a cage to be installed. The third row passenger armrest looks like it has a metal closeout plate riveted to it and the clothes hook is missing, probably for the rear cage mounting bracket. I don't see notches in the B-pillar trim, but replacements could have been sourced from the same vehicle that the console came from. Since the passenger side B-pillar trim is missing the screw cover trim piece, it likely broke during removal from the donor vehicle.
