    Figured i'd post it on here, i just got her the other day and it's getting a 9' 2" Boss Power V XT in a week or so! It may not be a racecar, but its torquey and nimble. plus I have a 10 foot bed and an I-pak on a 136" wheelbase!

    yeah it's 4x4 and a standard 5 speed. 10 inches of ground clearance. Exhaust brake and a nice cab...standard power mirrors and doorlocks and heated mirrors. I think the gears are something like 5.30s? i know the last generation had 5.70s! This thing in 4L crawls so slowly at idle in first that you could get out and walk around it.

    Nice truck the awesome thing about flatnose trucks is watching the plows every move.

    These engines are great the only problem is that these trucks rust out bad on the front and front floor area. This is a common problem with Fuso so with snow I wouldn't keep this truck too long.

    The GVW is 14050 lbs I believe.

    Nice truck. I love cabovers. They are so maneuverable and visibility is awesome.

    For those who have never drove one...

    A 112.6" wheelbase Fuso has a 37.7' turning diameter.
    A new F350, 56.5'. A F450 51.5'. A Chevy 3500 53.2'.

    If I ever had to get a new dump, The Fuso FG140 would be at the top of my list.
