    Default Oshkosh P and MPT series chassis

    I have seen a couple of engines (mainly wildland) built on the Oshkosh MPT series chassis. The P series is its big brother. Granted, these would seem to be specialty chassis as not everyone needs one, but my question is how hard would it be to get a four door conversion put on one. If someone needed to do some serious off-road or winter responses, these would seem to be nice. The standard cab is pretty narrow, but so is the Kenworth and Peterbilt. I would imagine that, for a price, one could get just about anything added.

    Contact Fontaine Truck Modification Co. I don't have their address but you can surely find it on line. They are hooked up with most of the large truck manufacturers as their business is doing specialty modifications that aren't practical to do on an assembly line. There are other companies that do the same thing, also.
