Now this is a truck! Of course it's MB.

This a great picture. Talk about over-loaded! A true testament to MB engineering.

Howdy All,
The pic has been around for a while. The men riding on top work at a remote town in one of the middle eastern countries. Then after a certain amount of time ( 6months/a year?) they pack up all their belongings and head back home. Interesting way they fix flats. They wedge something under the axle and then dig out the sand from under the flat tire, put the new one on and drive off the "jack".

These men are actually salt miners using Mercedes 4 x 4 trucks in place of the traditional camel caravan. You can see the cone-shaped salt blocks in some of the bags if you look closely. This link explains further...
