This truck came about from seeing these two wrecked vehicles for sale at a used truck lot in Wyoming. The back of the American LaFrance pumper was demolished by another truck from the rear. The Ford race car hauler cab was destroyed when a race car at a local event came sailing through the air directly landing on the cab. No one was hurt in both instances. Only $6000 was spent on both wrecked vehicles. JTSS had just acquired a new Komodo K4 front end loader and needed a transport for it. JTSS got the idea to combine both vehicles and thus this rig was born. A little over $53,000 was put into the upgrading and modernizing of this rig – along with a new Caterpillar diesel and automatic transmission. Slight modifications of the race car ramp allows the 6 ton Komodo K4 to get on and off easily.
