    Something about 6x6 just makes any truck look so much cooler. Thanks for the pictures!

    I remember seeing one of the original 408's at the Dallas Militaria/Military Vehicle show regularly. Of course that was until it died (the show) after 9/11.

    The extended 4 wheeled type are fairly common here in Texas. The company's big money maker for it's West Texas Facility, were the Safari Parks that were all the rage in the 80's and 90's. The ones they made for the military consideration were made in North Texas, trucked to Red River Army Depot, receipted there, and sent by train to Aberdeen Proving Ground. We see a civilian 6 wheeled version about every 6 months on Craigslist, etc, when someone pulls one out of an old barn.

    Here's some more picts. The 1st two are ours. Showing the bed behind the seats. I put a board up to show you what the bed of a civilian type would look like, just pretend it's metal. Also, 1 ea picts of the ones in Arkansas and WA State.

    I know of three of the original XM408s, one recenetly sold on ebay and was in very rough shape, one is in TN at a friend of mine's place and it is in pretty good shape and the other is in New England area if my memory serves, though it's been 15 years since I last heard of it.
