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
