    go big or go home

    Hi
    Since we only live once, I guessed it was time to start one more project.
    This 1990 mercedes 6X6 has been a rally raid assistance truck since new.
    I'm trying to make it more multifunctional.

    Truck specs
    1990 2635 ak 6x6 factory rally raid version
    OM442A 14.6L V8 twin turbo
    16sp mercedes manual + 2sp zf transfer
    5 diff lock
    14.00r20 XZLs
    CTIS
    850L fuel tank (225gal)
    in-cab FIA roll cage, bucket seats and harness
    8x Ohlins shocks

    As it sits right now...

                      Not just yet.
                      I've been busy with other stuff and the plasma table is down at the moment.
                      Next job is putting together the dual 4in straight pipes

                        What exactly are we looking at? Maybe you could let us in on the build plans at some point?

                        Looks neat whatever it is!

                          I'm guessing pneumatic/hydraulic jacks/lifts.

                              The hooklift system will be made removable so that the truck can be used with other "tool" bodies
