What cool trucks (rigs or pick ups) have you seen lately?


Recommended Posts

Agreed, but even more interested to know what that olive drab 'thing' is on that low boy.

Looks like it could be a Snow Cat or a HMTT-type truck.

It was military. This truck and the one next to it had the same thing on.

Those forklifts are kinda ugly I think but I'd probably do something similar if I had one so I'm not one to talk. HAH.

That old Chevy though, beautiful.

think of them more like tractors that have forks on the back

In a hotel parking lot, a serious lowboy. I wonder what the capacity of that is. 200t?

This truck is pretty well the only one which can negotiaite the local streets without damage.

A nice old Jeep.

And finally, my own rig. 2005 Raleigh, 28 in. wheels, 21 speeds, one geezer power. And the rating varies with what the geezer had for breakfast.

You off 51st if I'm not mistaken. If you get some extra time and way to go. The Dannys Truck Resort is on 67th across from the Flying J. It's a truck wash, chrome shop, polisher, cb shop, vinyl shop, and restaurant, all in one place. I've spent hours at that place, and a lot money.

Saw a Freightliner FLD, only a two axle, with six open-sided ballest containers partially loaded. Ballast as best as I could tell was 1000-something(didn't see lb. or kg.) cast metal units.

No draw bar, signage or supporting/ associated trucks around.

I was driving to work so no photo though. Hugely disappointed considering it's such an odd set up.
