    Just curious if anyone has a full up 2 1/2 ton 6x6 and if so what you use it for? I'm thinking about getting one

    We use ours as a brush truck/off highway recovery vehicle on the fire department. Can't go wrong with it as cheap as they are.

    Do you guys run NDT tires on it still or something else? I have heard that the old NDT's don't do so well

    used mine in iraq for everything... since it was all i had. i want to buy one just to have. drive it to the store once in a while, paint it up all funky, wheel it now and then, use it on a farm... have to buy a farm also... they rock. cant break them... well.. we did put #6 through the side of the block.... but it still drove on 5 cyl once we made the fuel system work the same way.

    Yes, we still run NDT's as they are what came on it from the state. Haven't had a reason to use anything else. These work just fine.

    that's cool, I like the super single 52's and the winch but I think I would keep the dual rear axle setup

    Usually less. That one is frickin' immaculate, so the price is higher than most. Usually in the $4,500 range. The gubmint auctions usually get between $2,000 and $4,000 for them, depending on what's on the back and how well (or if) they run.
