War Machine

My new toy, a 1991 BMY Harsco M931A2 6x6 Truck. Its powered by an 8.3 litre Cummins 6CTA Turbodiesel engine (we turned it up a few notches already) The government was nice enough to spend $86,000 completely rebuilding it before selling it to me with only 554 miles on it. Thanks Guys!
It will be getting a mobile command center body, MRAP seats, Mrap wheels, 53" Michelins will replace the little 49 inchers, and full RV treatment on the interior. Exterior will stay all business. This monster runs on Diesel, ATF, used oil, Kerosene, Jet fuel, Biodiesel, Fryer oil and more. Almost like free fuel. Wheeeee! 

Old Smokey

Old Smokey will be the new Chuckles Garage shop truck. I'm taking a different approach with this one as I have past personal builds. This truck will be a sort of "no rules/boundaries build. It will be powered by a built P-pumped 5.9l Cummins 12 valve turbodiesel with approximately 800hp and 1600ft lbs of torque. The motor and transmission are being built by our neighbors Total Performance Diesel. Suspension is full tubular a-arms up front, and an adjustable 4-link with watts link out back with Aldan adjustable coilovers at all corners. Will be set up with full road race geometry. Weight distribution will be an even 50/50 split with the engine sunk back halfway past the firewall. Old Smokey will have a full DOM cage and Kirkey full containment roadrace seats. Wheels are 17x9.5 with 255/40/17 and 275/40/17's. More details to follow.....
