Andy. That would make a cool model. Steve
LOTS of scratch building and kit bashing! I've thought about it though. And, I have no measurements either, but it weighed 14,700 pounds!

I found this on the internet. It is a right hand drive version. Dimensions are there and readable. Just put it in a photo editor and flip it left to right.

@Gary- Thanks for posting the file for the Capacity. Funny thing about my pictures...I was tooling around looking at houses for sale and switched to a satellite view, found where I used to work, zoomed in, and there I was taking the pictures I posted above.

That is scary! Big brother is watching.
Never quite understood why these things were so heavy or expensive but I guess they were designed to take alot more abuse and banging up than a regular truck.
Thanks for getting the the thread started on these things.

@Jesse- That particular TJ4000 scaled out at about 14,500 lbs. Which is only about 1500-2000 lbs less than a regular day-cab tractor with tandem axles(around 16,000+ lbs.). But yeah, they are built for abuse...very solid frames.
