Default Why not a HEMTT ??

I mean - When people talking 8x8, it's seems to be MAN or Tatra they're thinking.....so here's the story so far:

well we can see youve got some details nailed for sure...looking forward to the body build!
i love the spring spacers, should alow soft flex, yet firm up as it compresses/ loaded with weight

If you make that the wrecker version you will be my hero. Great work so far, and I also wondered why no one ever built one.

Great job on the suspension man very impressive!
you should do a military jet boat in the cargo area.Thats the main thing I see being carried on them in my area..
What machine are you using to machine (lath)down the aluminum ?

This thing is awesome so far! By far the cleanest 8x8 suspension I've seen yet! I can't wait to see the body!

Darn - I'm not gonna be your hero then
This one will be a M983 Tractor

That way I can look forward to build the 40 inches long trailer when the tractor is done

One idea I have is to build different interchangeable attachments....like bed - a wreckerbody - tank and so on....we'll see.
