    The 6x6 looks like a duce replacement.
    I know what Rob was trying to show us. it's a 4x4 version of the 6x6 but I couldn't find the page. There is a picture with it in it in the lower left here.

    See those don't make any sense. I though Stewart Sevenson out of TX had the contract for the Duce replacment. It's a cab over deal that looks a little like a Unimog and even has Portal axles. Comes in a 4x4, 6x6 wrecker and a van body in bot 4x4 and 6x6.

    Here is another shot you can get a better idea of the size.

    Just to let you all know, Stewart Stephenson does have the contract, but I think that the GM ones are prototypes that they are trying to push for the less tactical areas! Not sure why, the Army has already switched almost completely over to Humvees and we really don't need anything with such little ground clearence! Not to mention, do you know how hard it would be to get parts for those new vehicles! We can barely get parts for the LMTVs and the MTVs!!!! If they start using those GM trucks, we're F**ked!!! /forums/images/icons/cool.gif
    Just my $.02 from the Motorpool!

    My understanding with the GM's is they are leased to the army and GM will be doing the maintance. Once the lease is up they go back to GM and GM will resell them.
    Hummers are a pain in the butt for a lot of stuff. Ride like crap and too wide. The trucks fill the gap when the hummer is too much. The hummer is at home in the desert when it has plenty of room to roll. I would say the GM trucks are probably as off road capable as the hummer if they just added some sliders. They will have better articulation than the hummer. The Durmax deisel is probably more dependable than the 6.5 in the hummer too boot.
