    I wonder how hot the engine gets towing the trailer with the spare mounted in front of the grill, guess he can't keep it underneath the box with the extra axle.

    the guy must have $$$ to blow...for $12k he could have bought a 2000 model semi and still have a decent looking pickup to get groceries with....

    You would have thought they would at least use a long bed. What a complete waste of money.

    I'm telling Obama........

    +1 on the longbed part. For a $12k job that could have been done a little, nicer? cleaner? The middle triangle thingy between the wheels shouldnt be there. And if he had $12k just, sitting there...why didnt he trade in that truck, and buy an F-350 or F-450 dually??

    A couple of years ago I saw a Dodge with tandem rears. But they used a reg cab, and made a 10 foot bed. It was more of an offroad truck than for towing. That tire on the front says all you need to know about this yahoo.

    And it looked like a zebra. I think its down to just one rear axle now but with the bed cutout for 2 still.

    I just saw a tandem axle ford 90's ish dump dually in elgin the other day. it had a 12 or so foot dump bed on it and a toolbox between the cab and box. it looked funky

    Have you talked to him much about how well the conversion was done and if he is happy with the work?

    I've read more bad things about usa 6x6 then I've seen people who are happy with their work.

    Doesn't matter what brand you drive, that T-Rex is cool. Typical Dodge. How much horsepower/functionality can we put around this seat.

    Why is it that I envision JD DAVE posting a video of him in that truck at the Caledon Truck Pull?
