M984A1 this is my personal favorite to drive and operate. Easily the most capable recovery vehicle in the us arsenal. she shares the same 736 CID detroit as the HET above but is able to pull twice what the HET can without the planetary hubs. The biggest thing i have pulled with her was a HETS with an Abrams loaded on the trailer. i did it without using low range, i did it without locking the axles, and i did it without putting her in 8x8. This has been my DD for the last 8 months. :icon_cheers:
I'm about 90% sure I had one of those parked in my driveway for close to half an hour while we talked to a buddy of ours and some other guys who had it off base for the day. This one was green though.

Bully dog chipped, banks stinger exhaust, airaid air filter, front and rear lockers in stock 3.73 limited slip rear end, it is a lariat ordered with cloth seats. We are the second owners I know the first owner. Also has spray in bed liner, custom two tone white over black paint job, slide and lock tie downs, Biggest weather gaurd truck box available. Probably missing a few things. This is me and my dad's pride and joy hauling our parts B2:

My dad's truck, which we pull everything with. Tuned 6.4, probably putting down a bit over 500 rwhp/1000 rwtq. It is a beast, quite a bit quicker than my brothers bolt on 2v mustang gt (2001).

Shitty picture unfortunately, and it makes the flares look like another color when they're not lol.

I don't have a picture of the tractor on the trailer or even of the trailer, it is just a standard car trailer with two 3500lb axles.
