I have no need for a truck this size. But I sure wouldn't mind having one!! Of course I'd go broke on the first fill-up. It's hard enough with just a 34gal. tank! And if I owned one of these I'd have to get a much larger TT than I own now. LOL

The thing is huge!

This is the truck a lot of RV'ers have been looking to find. You can, I think, put a LARGE truck camper in the back and drive wherever you need or you can tow your trailer, the other trailer and your Jeep. Of course, rest room stops will require you (or your DW) to stop every two hours anyway. This is the right size for some of the newer truck campers being manufactured. Don't worry about the fuel; one fill-up and you will break the bank anyway.

That is one of the biggest trucks I have ever seen! It's like they got a big SUV, chopped off the rear and installed a long flatbed on it. I can't imagine how much that thing would cost and also how much refueling it would cost!

Well considering that the ne 2500/3500's are over 45-55K, I would say an easy 65-75K...(Just my assumption)

And with that many gallons available, it would definitely sit in the garage(If it fits) unitl it is time to hook up and road trip....No daily driving that thing!! LOL

If you have to ask how much, then you can't afford it unless you live in Texas (or a similar location) and own your own oil well.
Looks very nice, but my wife wouldn't let me buy it since I couldn't make the payments and pay the fuel bill.
