That's an awesome video. That rig looked like it picked up those rocks with no effort. How much weight do you have on the back to counter balance?

About 1000lbs between the I match, ballast box and wheel weights. It handles materiel like that mixed aggregate pretty effortlessly. I was in 2wd low range. Its a lot larger than a GT.

I gave Fred that old muffler years ago. That poor thing has served as a temporary muffler many many times. LOL That new diesel has the power!
