Wow, these are some amazing trucks! I don't know if you guys consider it a "Big Rig" but here's my Ford C600 I built years ago.

 

The term "Big Rig" is very subjective, I been having problems with it since many of my builds are in the heavy straight truck class. If a  heavy wrecker does not belong here, were does it belong? Light commercial trucks ( beefied up pickups) and many medium trucks do not require special license, but heavy trucks  (over 26K) do. AMT screwed up the series designation on most of the Ford tilt  kits, C 600 was a falsehood, it was a C 900, top of the line for 2 axle tilt cabs. GVW for the AMT C 900 is around 36K, a whopping 10K over a non CDL vehicle. Here is something I was experimenting with.

Very nice job. Definitely big rig material. when I was a tyke back in the 1960's I had a similar unit made by a toy company called Marx. Mine had a white cab.
