Hey Dal,Post a picture of one of the "land barges" (brushbreaker)if you got one.Old powerwagons were great,nothing produced before or since had the "goability" of those units.Brakes left something to be desired though.T.C.

Nothing ever ate up brush like an old WM300 Powerwagon.
They oughta re-introduce the original body with 21st century improvements!
I bet the wildland people would jump on that opportunity!
