I really don’t know what you would call this truck it’s an all wheel drive.
When I first started it was based on Toys and joys Power Wagon but the more I got close to the finish it looks more like a kenworth to me.
It has suspension both front and back and the drive shaft follows the movement.

I’ve wanted to make this dump box for a long time just love the way it looks

The wheels were a test set I made when I first built my new wheel making jig and just had to find a place for them.

Here's the blog.

Tony I would guess if I was to ever really display this truck a mirror under it would be interesting.

I would really like to know how numbers work when we’re talking tire pull, as in a 4×4 jeep would be all four wheels.
Would this make my Toyota Prerunner a 2×4.

So does that make this truck a 10×10 or does it just work with the pickups?
