This 2011 Global UXV has a storied past. Jesse James (the motorcycle builder) utilized this vehicle as his base vehicle for the Baja 1000. It is nine years old but only has approximately 27,000 miles. In my 2018 U.S. Senate race in New Mexico, it drove in parades across the state. We just completed a number of re-fresh and upgrades, which include:

  • Suspension upgrade by McBride Suspension / King Kong Customs
  • Electrical System upgrade by Merrigan’s RV Repair & Solar Advantage of Tucson, AZ
  • Architectural & cabin refresh by Tom’s RV and Mick Rich Contractors

Global X thinks a lot about this rig. It is still on their website as an example on everything going right. This Global UVX set the standard.
