Damn that would be a very cool way to transport defenders around. I'd want a dual rear for additional stability with that high center of gravity.

There appears to be a massive winch in that front bumper.
The roll back bed and crew cab is really calling to me. A quick check on google shows the turbo version of this engine/truck getting over 20mpg.

The front bumper would be the first thing to go.

Bed looks like the stackable Pallet style beds used on a bunch of NATO trucks. They secure to containers using the same style locking mechanisms they use container to container and wretch to container. Im wondering if the bed disconnects entirely for loading.

Dam! I used the prior generation version of that when IN the Brit TA! Believe it or not if your tired enough you can sleep in the back if one if those surrounded by diesel fumes. Try driving one of the on one in four single lane mountain roads.
There is a reason British army camp was green and black!

I just clicked the link and it looks like it disconnects entirely like the Army PLS. That means you can have a bunch of pallets built up for different occasions. Shelter/ camping pallet, flatbed, Refrigerated Storage...unlimited options.

The rollback does completely detach like the tank transport version (I called the seller). The bed is 9'-9" long by 7'-10" wide. I was thinking of using this for hauling the D and a racecar. But the max normal operating speed is only 45 mph. WOT is 60.
Selling after 1 month b/c wife hates it. I feel for the guy.

It is when you have a few hundred miles to head home after a 4-day weekend and have an hour or two worth of crap to unload.
