So this would be sick, but I'm fucked in the head?

But really, I like the idea. I started with one of those, but just didn't fill the bill. 4 years later, mighta shoulda stayed there.

Hate to burst your bubble, but the weight of that truck decked out with 53's will crucify the front axle. I have a set of those. I've taken em apart and am thinking of 54's but in a 4000lb buggy, not a 15,000 deck truck. I applaud the effort though.

As far as my shit goes, I'm making progress on most of em. Hopefully will have buss mobile and road able in jan.

Looks like a awsome platform to build a cool truck I was going to buy one awhile ago and make it into a rollback Towtruck but it just wasn't worth it

Should put my Mitsubishi turbo diesel and 5 speed in that thing all set up for 4x as well [cheers]

I was wondering the same thing.

was wondering the same, i might have seen it for sale at some point on CL vancouver mines stock 370 underpowered on propane 52,00km on it sat in a yard with a fuel tank on it, i thought roll back as well but they are just too tall, and when you need a 4x4 you want short bush rig tight turning, the 1200 holmes I bought and put on a 93 F350 4x4 diesel but tare was 10g and leaglly can weigh 11,000 and I went through scales at steel pacific and dropped 6500kg not including truck, so at least this one looks legal, I cut 4ft from the rear and moved all the hangers forward shortened my own shaft and moved the holmes on it it and converted it to propane all myself in my spare time (see my intro to see what else I do)
