    Crew Cab 6x6 Options?

    That is great! Then you should have answered differently to my post before we derailed the thread. Like it or not the prepper community is what is supporting this forum. Back to my original question can the M1085/m1088 be converted to a quad cab? BTW electronics are OK what is not OK is...

    Crew Cab 6x6 Options?

    Ok, Thank you, I will look at those options. What I find funny is that Trump signs an executive order in March for the Government to identify and protect key assets against Electro*#@netic Pul$e and you think that it's some sort of conspiracy wack job request? I built a 12v Cummins Suburban...

    Crew Cab 6x6 Options?

    Guys, I've been doing a TON of research. I have narrowed down to the M1085. In case anyone else is in the same position (I am sure you are out there) here is what I have come up with... 1. The M900 series (freight liner body style) trucks will only fit 3 in the back. This is because these...

    I completely agree. Very nice rig!

    One other question for you guys. Is it possible to swap the body of these trucks with a freightliner body? I am guessing no but I figured I would ask for those that know about the Freightliner chassis.

    Crew Cab 6x6 Options?

    I hear you. The 37-38' would equate to about 35-36'' total length from bumper to back of frame because the rear would have a subframe and box would be angled up like the MAN TGS expedition rigs. We are not looking to traverse the world with it but would like to be able to travel places that...

    Making it a 8x8? Would be cool. Wonder how that would do on road?

    Crew Cab 6x6 Options?

    How long do you think we can add on to a m927 and still have a nice offroad rig? I am trying to get to a 26-28' bed with a quad cab. We were looking at a Dynamax DX3 at almost 40' so I figured if I could stay under 40 with 6x6 it should still be pretty functional offroad but this is all new...

    That is awesome! How long is your box without the alcove?

    We are building a 3 point torsion free subframe that bolts to the frame. This is how Expedition rigs in other countries handle frame tweaking.

    Ah dual tanks is nice to start with. Wonder if the same is the frame? Do you think a fabricator would need to find another truck to extend it or would they just build a new frame? I'll start looking at those also.

    Oops sorry about that. I will remove the EMP part.

    Crew Cab 6x6 Options?

    BTW I am curious why would you go with a m931a2 vs a m927a2 if you were stretching it?

    Crew Cab 6x6 Options?

    I am right with you. The m927 would give us the 8.3 and longer wheel base. I can't seem to find a good place that will take on the project. Have a call in with a local guy that does kickass fab work but he might be too busy. Definitely going to keep the weight down on the rear that's why we...

    Crew Cab 6x6 Options?

    Hi, I am new here so hopefully I am posting in the correct location. We are a family of 6 looking for a 6x6 (preferred), 8x8 or 4x4 vehicle that has seating for 6. We are looking at stretching the frame and putting a 26' expedition box and torsion free sub frame on the back. The only solution...
