The Other 6x6 - Reader's Letter

A Better 6X6

Truck Trend Editors
Feb 27, 2014
Dear Truck Trend,
After reading "Humongous," (March/April 2014), I remembered seeing something similar locally some years back. True, it wasn't as humongous or grand as the Mercedes 6x6 G-Wagen, but it showed excellent Vermont Yankee ingenuity. The owner had taken a small Toyota 4x4 (I don't remember what year it was, but it still had vent windows), lengthened the frame, and added tandem Rockwell axles and a dump body. They wound up with a 6x6 that was more practical than the G63 AMG 6x6. Would you carry cow poop with the Mercedes? I don't think anyone well-heeled enough to buy one would use it for anything more than a "look how rich I am" status symbol.

Dear Reader,
This Toyota-based 6x6 is much more useful than the Mercedes 6x6, and it's great that it isn't created to be a status symbol. I have to tell you that lots of people here would love to drive this truck. By the way, we believe it's a 1980-1981 Toyota.
