    I saw this strange homebuilt looking K30 . I know it has a D60 , with Warn flanges , some weird cage that goes from the cab to a homemade headache rack , a wodden flatbed , sits low to the ground ,and has a weird box welded to the front bumper you stand in .

    All I have on me at work is my cell phone , so pic is crappy .
    Yes its attached pic , sorry free guys .

    Whatcha think , parade truck , or service rig of some kind ?

    Why would it need flanges. Its too low to be offroad.

    I bet they tow the vehicle with that and have the cameras and monitors on the bed of the truck. Like was stated it let them get the "inside the car action shots"

    Hmm, maybe they used it to film the pic with Jenifer Garner at WAFB last year? I heard there were some car chases and lots of action.

    I've seen similiar trucks around here that is used for road crew work, specifically someone laying down in front gluing reflectors to the ground once a new road has been paved. The flatbed is commonly used to stack road cones and is low so someone can walk along and pull them off easily.
