Yeah that thing looked crazy with those tractor tires. Unfortunately this is the only type of wheeling these trucks are good for in their factory configuration and without power or air-o-matic steering. He just bought a set of 46-inch michelens for it that we will hopefully have mounted up soon. He was thinking about getting a winch for it but damn those things are expensive.

Saw a bobbed 5 ton out here on 53" Michelins. Looks pretty mean.

Looks good! Doesn't look very rusty either, did you all repaint it or anything?

It was rebuilt by the military some time in the 90's so its in real good shape. We did touch up some of the paint on it though. and upgraded some of the filters to spin-on's. Its tough to drive with no power steering but i think it runs much better with the bigger tires.
