Not to sure but I think the military made some thing like that on one of there trucks a long time ago. Had a swivel in the frame. Can anyone back me on this?

Construction equip has their own version, and it's a 6x6. This one is a Volvo, but most of the manufaturers have one. I just do not have any pics of a Cat articulated truck that shows any flex.

Gamma Goat

The military Gamma Goats are made with a similar design - I have seen those (OEM stock with a pumper bed) do some pretty crazy terrain out in the black hills during fire season...

They are lots of fun and pretty cheapo to get surplus ~3-7K dependant on condition...

More on the frame pivot on the pictured toy - I like the idea just was worried about torque flex :eek:

Read: vroom, vroom, crunch - cool! the cab is on its side!? :flipoff2:

hope he's got a hinge, but i have seen fullsize longbeds do that without one, 'specially if they're old and tired and are running a lot of lift and big tires- springs too stiff = frame gives.

I think it is especially :rainbow: how he is drinking the whole time. I fawkin hate wheeling with people that think it is a great time to drink some beer. I espcially love it when they give me great tips like "Hammer it" or the like. Sorry, about the side line there, continue on with the frmae talk...
