    Uhhh doubt this truck has been over 45mph since it was built /forums/images/icons/smile.gif Might want to bring a trailer cause My bet is it is geared so low that at redline in OD it might do 50mph. It's in UT.

    You WA guys might want to take a look too. 92 2500 5speed with 70k on it. Last bid was $1450. Let me read between the lines on this truck for you. FUEL INJECTED V8, NV4500 with the super low granny, 14 BOLT (might be a SF), 241 case (driverside drop).
    https://www.gsaauctions.gov/jsp/trader/common/Mainframeset.jsp?CID=4968 https://www.gsaauctions.gov/jsp/trader/common/Mainframeset.jsp?CID=4968 Lots of other stuff in the area including a APACHE camper last bid was $200 I think.
    Ohh just noticed that web site played a little link trick on me. here is a Picture of the truck.

    I saw that and was wondering if those were Rockwells. Are you sure? I don't know them well enough to be absolutely sure when all I can see is the hub. If they are, that would be too sweet for a few hundred. I've got a trailer. /forums/images/icons/laugh.gif

    I thought the 3/4 tons got the Getrag 5 speed like the 1/2 tons did and the one tons got the NV4500?

    Those big hubs protruding out look like those planetary gear hubs like the monster trucks use.

    But they look like smaller planetary hubs than the larger ones on the monsters.

    I don't know what those axles are but with those hubs I feel pretty safe saying it's beyond D60 strong. It looks like that thing was being used as a Tug at an airport. It's set up to move masive amount of weight. Probably looking at Gear ratio between 7-10:1 If it still has a 208 your probably up to something like 150-200: finnal drive before torq converter multiplication. With that much axle it wouldn't surprise me to see a Heavy truck monster transfer case in that.

    Keeps the Bumper hight laws in check /forums/images/icons/smile.gif
    Actully I think that's balast that doubles as a bumper. Keeps the truck from flipping backwards. I bet that bumper weights about 1,000 lb.

    Grim is correct. It looks like a airplane tug. Top speed is about 15mph. I looked at one a few months ago that a church was using as a plow truck. It should have Rockwells. They actually used a 2wd frame to build them.

    Yeah, I noticed that the VIN indicated 2WD, but figured, "so what" since it is obviously modified. Wish it were in AZ...
