    Our surplus HMMWV works great. If it wasn't for the maintenance on those I'd totally be all for it. The tanker is a bit big for the rural setting imo, weigh limits and all. Strange light setup on the LMTV.....

    Sparky might have a point on the HEMMT at about 33 tons GVWR but it's pretty nimble off-road with ground pressure rated at 58 psi loaded. But, with 24-inch ground clearance, it'll go just about anywhere off-road if regular road and bridge load limits are high enough for it to get there.

    I gotta say, they look pretty sharp in their red paint.

    Finally, a vehicle that has a worse turning radius than my pickup. Was beginning to think they didn't exist.

    Nice trucks. Lots of water. But can they pump? Hahaha.

    (I mean, I see the pumps, but can they match a purpose-built apparatus?)
