    Isn't the M1010 ambulance based on a pickup? The Blazer would have a 106.5" wheelbase, and the Suburban is 129.5".

    Looks like an M1010 is based on a regular cab pickup having 131.5" wheelbase. Pretty cool rig if ask me /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif

    That thing looks like some kind of freakish ice cream truck with the all white paint job. /forums/images/graemlins/wink.gif I'd like to have one of those heaters though! Looks like that would keep the inside of the ol' Sub warm all night on those winter camping trips. /forums/images/graemlins/cool.gif

    That is cool....Chop the frame from the sub and mount the ambulance rear section to it for a camping trailer. I truly love the unique....

    By the way... how did the body mounts line up? Does the body sit higher on the frame now? What about fuel tanks?

    Just curious as I have a C30 frame I may want to use under my Burb /forums/images/graemlins/wink.gif
