My God! THAT'S a truck alright. It says it has a 17 liter engine. Surely that can't be right. Maybe it should read 7.1 ltr? It also says there's a 2000 gallon ter tank mounted on the chassis. That probably would be better used to carry fuel.

It even comes with a hydraulic wench. That's nice, although I prefer my wenches to be pneumatic.
