    They look more like Baja Claws to me.

    I don't think those are CTIS so much as just inflating (deflating?) the tires prior to shipment. The rear lines are draped over the tires.

    As for use ... pulling a REALLY long trailer, like a missile trailer, or trees, maybe?

    prolly used up north in the canadian arctic. pipelines and stuff like that. moving drill rigs and building around. it's just a big flat snow sheet up there so there's lots of room to turn a truck around. so the size isn't too much of an issue.

    it's funny cause those look just like baja claws. they're bigger than he is!

    i could fit like 20 suzuki samurai's on that truck. :laugh:

    Off road heavy haul. Such as oil field or logging. i've seen such things. I'd bet it's destined to be a winch truck.

    Dunno could be I guess. This is some junk that I've worked on. A level smaller than that Kenny though.

    This is a Pete we built into a Frac pumper that went Arctic for Schlumberger those are 55" XZLs. And thats a 3512 Cat on it's back :eek1:
