What a great truck, who wouldn't be impressed by 2 side by side huge diesel engines sitting in the rear, on a good day we could get 70mph out of these tanks, then pull on up on the steering wheel with both hands and mash the hydraulic brakes with both feet and pray you stop and didn't bust off the 3rd axle and run it over lol. Mechanics had hell keeping the collector gear boxes from exploding from all the engine torque in these beasts. Oshkosh has come a long way since the P2 and P4's.
