    They ought to send the executives of this company to the front lines of Falluja to help in the fight to keep oil prices low. :)

    I have finished filling out the equipment request form for one of these for our IT dept. and emailed it to our equipment manager. I will let you know what his reply will be.

    A commercial license? To drive one you should fill out an Environmental Impact Statement.

    Pretty, some of those larger trucks. They will still end up calling a unimog to get them out of the muck when it came down to it.

    Patrick,
    Duck Fat... Switch the first two letters...

    p.s... I had to create an "at the girlfriends house" account since I couldn't remember my password to my tighline account... my email is set up at the office, so I couldn't get to it... so in short ~B is me, B, aka tightline.

    FFb, u will be able to pass under that truck with no problem. If i ever saw that thing on the road without a full load and a huge trailer, i would flag down the person driving. Then i would pull out my ladder and climb to the door, and open it. I would slap the person driving it. The calmly ask, why did u buy this, and walk away calmly. On secound thought, i bet a fair amount of people driving those things are packing a 12 gauge....

    Hmmmmm, depends on the gross tonage on that thing, doubt you'll need a CDL. Our big trucks at work (pretty similar chassis to this one) don't require a CDL, since they are under 26,000 gross. Think it's the gross weight capacity with trailer that'll screw you. But if you only use like this w/o trailer rating, should be fine. Looks like it's modified with a bed, so probably well under the 26000 limit JUST for that reason above. This way anyone can drive them (not saying they should, but can).

    To tell you the truth, I drive big trucks for a living in "tight driving" conditions. Not open road ones like big rigs. I'm scared enough watching the soccer moms and the likes driving these huge rigs (can you say BACK FIRST into a parking spot, not nose.......SHEESH).

    But these have "sorta" been out already. They've had these as fancy 5th wheel haulers for awhile now. Just not with the bed in it. Just had 5th wheel hitch in back.
