Nice rig there xr. Love these conversions, always a big job to do something like this, let alone getting it looking so good.

Just hope your stirring with that last comment (little hard to tell from here) when the posting has only been up for a few hours.

I must admit I looked at it a couple of times before I posted, I dont really know big trucks so dont really know what I'm looking at. I have got one though so one day I'll be screaming for help lol.

Nice job on the conversion Ash, very neat build. Are they Auslowe tanks or kit jobs?
There's something about big rig tow trucks that just screams toughness, you can almost hear their big balls clanging. Not really a truck dude but wouldn't mind one of these on the shelf.

Spooky.
I was looking at this and a heavy recovery truck just towed an old australia post truck past the window.

Good work. Completely not my cup of milo but yeah

What does it weigh out of interest?
