I saw a similar fire truck in San Diego turned into a brick oven pizza food truck. :grin:

I think that would be perfect for you @Hotshot since you don’t drive all over creation and work in residential neighborhoods.

There’s a company not too far from me that has one. It’s a smaller truck though.

I’ve seen their other rigs in my neck of the woods.

They must drive a heck of a ways to work. Maybe fleet washing out that way? I’ve never seen them out and about but I think they mainly work Champaign, Decatur, Clinton, and Bloomington. They do all kinds of stuff. Fire restoration, plow snow, and even paint grass green…lol

They have big yellow box trucks that I’ve seen at Casey’s fueling up in macomb a bunch of times. Never saw them working macomb though.

Horrible idea

Used fire truck are like buying used police cars… don’t do it. They sit still until the tones drop then they are started and pedal to the floor before the lifters even prime up.

This GMC C6500 Topkick is a better idea for you. 26,000 GVWR Class 6 box truck, Non CDL, GAS 7.4l or 8.1l gas in the newer ones and a Allison automatic.
