ALF Cab and Loader

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.

    John this build really turned out well. took a while to get to the finish line – But definitely worth the wait.
    Specifically your loader [bucket] weathering stands out.
    The chains and the rest of the dirt-weathering looks the part.
    What definitely gets my attention is all the finier details , especially reading all the decals, not to mention the detailing on the rims………………there is just no end to all of it.
    How I would luv to see these beauties in person. [ONE DAY]
    For those onlookers who never saw the ”process” I feel sorry for what they missed.
