    Thanks, MogWildRW1! Here's a rudimentary web site by the Bronto truck dealer in Fort McMurray, Alberta. The web site says the 4x4 has a payload of 10,000 lb, and the 6x6 is rated to carry 15,000 lb off-road.

    FINALLY!

    A usa available heavy duty off-road capable platform for sale to the general public!

    So what is everyone's opinion on the lack of any 'low-range' style gearing? All the International based BLM fire engines I used to drive way back when had a hi-lo transfer case...and where useless without low range.

    My thoughts precisely Chip.

    I did not see anything in the PDF that I did find that said they could work in the USA. Sure would like the truck if it did, but I doubt it.

    Heck that would be, IMO a far better platform for the Unicat Americas trucks than what they have now.

    Maybe they just did not pay their bills because they are too busy selling trucks... yeah right, or out of business already.

    Edit: I should say that I am specifically speaking about the bronto truck/co, not the GXV truck.

    Also on the unicat bit. Well GXV has some really nice trucks already, but the unicat ones just suck IMHO. K, cleared that up. Cheers

    The place I spotted them sitting at was Worldwide Machinery.

    On this page of their website they have a press release for Titan trucks.

    They're in Channelview, TX, along I-10 East of Houston.

    Also, here's an article on the trucks by Engineering News - Record.

    Titan, Brazos, Bronto?

    What does each dealer get to pick the name they want to call them? Geez they are all the same truck in the photos, why all the different names?

    Hey Chip -
    Someone should contact Worldwide Machinery and try to get one on display at the Overland Expo.

    Will be happy to build you a complete cabover 6x6 chassis cab with 400hp Cummins, Allison auto, CTIS and lockers in all three axles for about half that price.

    Wonder what the dealer cost is from BAE?
