Great looking trucks Ken. What's the story on the first one? Does that extended front bumper have more than one purpose, like weight distribution? CAW

That bumper looks like it's made for pushing other vehicles.

Thanks Q, there is a winch mounted in the bumper, and for pushing. That is something you don't see too much anymore on wreckers. Whistle
