Man I like that truck, it has character.
I don't see how you could even get it turned around as it is, I chop a foot off of little one tons so to get turned easier.
What's it weigh?
Let's see some more pictures.

I don't have any more pictures, my son gave that one to me. I know he took some more and I'll have to see if he has them.


Normal weight is 36,000# That's with all the bolts I carry, two 90 gallon fuel tanks in the bed full of fuel, brass, fluids... I have to strip down pretty good to get under 32,000# if I know I HAVE to go thru the scales therefore I mostly travel at night.

That truck has an almost eerie "after the Big Bomb" character to it.
Kinda like a rolling survivalist, Mad Max Meets Mack Truck. I like it but I bet it skeers a lot of people.

We need more truck pictures. I love trucks with welding machines on them. More pictures of Jeff's truck, and 7018 said he would clean up his truck and post pictures but I never saw them, just a couple of some bed details. And more of that red Mack. And anything else out there.

I'll get some better pictures, but it needs a bath.
