My daily driver.

Well, I'll be spending 15+ hours a day in it for a while.





How I wish it was 4wd.

Not quite as good, but I was driving a f350 turbo diesel dump truck for work for the last 5 months or so.

For some reason, I don't think you'll be needing 4wd

Been burning around 120 gallons of diesel a day. I can spray about 4 acres per gallon. Can't remember how many gallons an hour I'm burnin. Probably around 8.

Those two behemoths are made by Oskosh... Trust me when I say the dragon waggon up top will go through ANYTHING and ask for seconds.

Some obstacles can not be moved, those you have to either- 1)go around, 2)go over 3)go under, or 4) my personal favorite, blow the heck up and go through the rubble!

and that is where the top one went, back to WI to get refurbished.
the fire truck went to dallas to get refurb'd also. although the fire truck had hardly any use on it, the army truck had bullet holes all over it though...

X2! HEMTT's are frickin beastly. They like to chew through sand dunes lol. You end up with a 20 foot pillar of sand being thrown up in the air, it's a great sight.
