    Default Rural Rescue/Tanker

    At first glance this truck looks like a pretty standard tanker right? Well, if you look closely you can see that it includes a generator and a Hurst high pressure tool set. The town that is was delivered to is very small and rural. Check it out:

    I'd hate to pull the ladder(s), and whoever mounted the cab streamlights, should be shot. Going to be a B****h to hit the release button.

    Otherwise, nice looking rig, and well equipped.

    I'm the one Fire and Rescue calls, when they need to be Rescued.

    I can't tell from the pictures. Does the Tender have a drop tank mounted on it?

    The Mic's look like they would be just as big of a PITA too.

    Yes, the compartment below the ladder has a slot for the drop tank.
