International 6x6 extra cab. Interesting part was the rear axles were the same width as the front and ran 395/85R20 tires on bead lock rims.

I didn’t get a chance to crawl around underneath but I would like to get some numbers off the axles.

There were a few other cool toys as well but no photos allowed.
 
That looks sweet
I wonder if those will be available surplus at some point in the future.
I like the extra cab vs crew cab to keep the overall length reasonable.

They are Canadian and I think they keep their gear longer than the US. But there are a bunch of older Iveco’s (I think) that would make a lighter base.

Looking at breaking free for a week and needed the ability to have a shower. So I threw the Eccotemp on the door with a 39 gallon tank and now it’s all go. 2 hours to fit the tank 8 hours chasing fittings, 20 minutes for the Eccotemp and about 2 hours chasing leaks. What a PITA.



Couldn’t find a anyway to put in another fitting for filling he tank so I reused a comeback bladder plug that was sitting around.



Given that both the tank and the heater are temporary I am well an truly sticking to my “do it twice then do it right” mantra.
