    Ha!
    I am going to pull the cylinder & chop the towers off of the bumper & keep it as it has toolboxes built into it.
    Not sure on the master & slave steering? It does have dual boxes though.

    That's way cool. There was a twin steer long-logger running around the area (Talmo?) way back. I guess it didn't work too well in that application.

    I remember a black Freightliner with twin steers about 15 years ago hauling logs around here, always wondered about how he liked it.

    Mark Chloupek had that truck then sold it to a guy on the harbor/peninsula area.
    Mark said it was hard on rails
