    Help identifying special tools

    Clothing repair shop, trailer mounted

    what 5 ton do i want

    5-ton rims and Goodyear MVT

    Just wondered if you had tried searching the site yet. I think this is a fairly common topic. If you can't get results from the steel soldiers search, then try google.

    I read this on another post, but never got around to trying it. Let's see if this works. If you move your cursor around on the screen, at some point it will change from a pointing finger to an arrow. On the first picture, it did this on the driver side bumper.

    Super Cool Ambulance

    I had the same ambulance body on my J20 Air Force jeep ambulance -- it is handy -- watch out for leaks where the curved cab roof meets the flat body roof.
