I think I will probably leave the dish out on this one. We have flipped hubs before---- this is actually the first time I have ran dish out on singles. It came out better than expected!

Those things are badass!
I have seen two of them near Glamis and Gordons Well. They had some kind of shipping container that was made into a camper?
I think Iam going to try to convince the wife that we should have one!
What is the average price for one?

The "container" is probably one of the many different sizes of communications shelters out there, some of which are ISO compliant:



An "average price" is hard to say without knowing exactly what truck model you are looking for as they can vary wildly in price depending on the model, options and region.

The Duce is 13K, is that 6 or 4 wheels? Dumb question I guess, but what kind of MPG can you get with it bobbed and what kind of range?

I am guessing there are upgrade mods for the motor, and maybe creature comforts inside?

Please forgive the ignorance, the last military vehicle I drove was a 58,000 ton ship, so I don't know much about these other than they are pretty sweet looking.

I could just throw my Jeep in the back, screw the trailer.

What are the dimensions of the bobbed beds? Inside dimensions that is...

Wondering if a Jeep would fit in the back.
