    In the third picture of this for sale ad. Looks pretty big, were they that big from the factory and it's just the camera angle or does it look like a lift was added?

    Clicky

    ive never seen a C65 or C70(whatever it is cant see the badgeing clear enough)that high off the ground, appears to have some stout axles judging from the amount of wheel bolts.

    Then again could be some dually that is modded all to hell and they just put a Clip off of a Straight truck on it. Only thing ive noticed different about their cabs are taht the floors are flat rather then having a hump that the seat sits on

    Just your basic big heavy duty truck . The big trucks had that front end , our doors and interior . Some guys just add regular truck beds and use them for redneck rides . They called those kodiaks last I heard :thumb:

    From what I hear, Wendy is big enough to handle it.

    On the actual topic, I saw a lot of Xcel Energy trucks this summer that were in the medium duty range and sat about that high off the ground. They had axles with an oval shaped center chunk and massive knuckles with CV joints for steering joints.

    All of them had the lighting removed from the front clip and placed in a drop bumper. I think that one's lifted, but there are quite a few very tall utility trucks out there.

    Thanks guys.

    It looked way too big to be stock but as you all have mentioned some of the hd trucks were pretty big from the factory.
