It's all rumor.

Not a rumor. I was the one who originally posted that there will be a Recon edition... and there WILL be one.

The details (unless found in post 1) are rumor. I know the axle stuff came from Archer but until confirmed it is best regarded as rumor. If I remember correctly Archer also heard of Purple painted stuff (XP) being seen but I think it was 6 mos to a year early?

Post one is the guide. Milous says recon is coming, he will get us details as soon as he has them or is permitted to share what he knows.

I am with you though wish we knew already.

Sorry, I was just having a bit of fun there. Didn't mean, originally, to imply the Recon itself was a rumor.

Lol nice. 3 more years for another percent I guess I am back on board.

So back to begging for info. Any gut on the Recon? Radical departure from the Hard Rock in terms of options & price or in a similar neighborhood?
