    You don't want your tow vehicle to be a project with custom parts, and I certainly wouldn't want to depend on water injection. A 10 or 15 year old 1-ton diesel is going to be a much better tow vehicle. A new diesel 1-ton will blow it out of the water.

      You're not wrong, but damn this truck is sick. It should be in the next mad max film.

          Yeah it's a cool toy. I just wouldn't want to rely on it 10 hours from home with 10,000 lbs of trailer. The chassis, suspension, brakes, ergonomics, etc are all going to suck compared to a new truck, plus it takes all sorts of custom parts.

            That's just east of a relative I have. That looks like a salt flat bump/push rig to get the tall-geared speed record cars rolling.

              Yup, that looks like a push plate with generator for a full loss LSR car. That or the roof mount a/c runs on 120VAC.
