They have like 7.xx gears in the axles and the only the first 3 gears in the tranmissions are used (if i remember correctly) so yeah, top speed at redline is like 30mph.

At my last job we had the kind with the wrap around bumper too but this is all i have a picture of.

Yup 5:11 am on sunday :D and bright and sunny 24/7

And i dont know what the wheel base was, like i said it was at my last job, i worked on a military base in the middle east. The Air Force uses them to tow around AGE equipment.

Never seen a dodge but all those other tugs have cummins in them. Yea if that 08 were used for aircraft it would have a pintle on the front.

We actually had 30 or so 96-98 Dodge 3500s that were equiped the same and did have the Cummins. We also had about 6 2000 F350s with the 7.3 and the new 2005s were starting to replace them all just because the fleet was getting so old. I dont have any pictures of the dodge trucks.

The cummins is a GREAT engine but the truck fell apart around the drivetrain.

And, like already mentioned, the Bobtails only pulled around generators, light carts, etc.
