^^^ Yep That One is a Bad Ass^^^, It will beat your back bone through your butt hole, but, you will damn sure get there and back.
Agree with Johali and SDJ. you can't beat a 5 ton. Just don't go near soft land...those things WEIGH. A. TON.
(duece and a half are 6 lug axles, 5'ers are 10 lug)
I hardly count a 5 or 6 series truck with a F-350 series bed on it. I don't know what they were thinking, but it's rather hideous.
Not that the GM 6500/7500 pickups are any better... at least their 3500 pickup bed actually fits.
There’s some crazy trucks out there.
A list of 15 top trucks without an International seems invalid to me. In 1976 4WD magazine tested a dozen trucks. The IH Scout matched or bested every test they did. (I remember this because my dad showed me the magazine - he was an IH dealer so I'm biased).
a good example of that it's possible to spend a ton of money and make something that looks stupid.
They don't need the wheel wells in that pickup box.
@kyle18fan might have something to say on this....
That's why I drive one, not a Scout but a 1200 pickup
This is the one I have
DAMN nice after market bumper....and wheels....longer mud flaps too in the back.
side note. weather LOOKS VERY HOT
I made the back bumper from scratch
more and more.
Bumpers are pretty easy, I probably overbuilt that one, it weighs about 200 lbs
LOL at the Blazer that long ass IHC walks on those poor things something terrible. The Blazer won't twist, the IHC keeps the wheels on the ground and twists like a wet noodle. Combine that with ultra low gearing, Spicer powerlock axles and you have a winner
Got a big winch on the front?
No, I have never needed a winch except for one high center episode that stuck me for a few hours ...... all 4 wheels off the ground. I pull trucks out that have winches quite often, there aren't many trees in some parts of our desert . My IHC only goes about 4 mph in low lock, if a wheel is on the ground it digs
how did you get the truck out with all 4 wheels off the ground?
I carry two short handle shovels, we dug for about 2 hours.
JEEPERs.......2 hours in the desert digging sand
Not a lot of sand here except for in the wash bottoms, we were digging hard assed dirt. I got about 200 feet of barbed wire wrapped in my rear drive shaft one time, had nothing but a pair of pliers to remove it, took me about 5 hours.
That is bad ass
Russia is the land of bad assed trucks, they endure some extreme terrain and temperatures
