    does anyone know if the govt ran out of surplus trucks to sell

    yes - I know about Govt Planet - didn't know if they were taking over from Govt Liq or just another outlet......seems pricing starts a lot higher now and selection is a LOT less. So- Am I to understand Govt Planet is completely taking over the trucks now?

    Wreckerman's M927A3 cargo/tractor truck

    a steering tag axle mounted behind the tandems would be pretty trick - especially if it could be raised and lowered as required like a m920 I suspect if you mounted the new rear steering axle and set the caster angle somewhere around the same as the front steering axle and put a decent size...
