I wonder how much weight made it up to that 20k front axle with the tank sitting way back yonder. Anyone know why it was spec'd with such a long wheelbase and the space between the cab and tank?

I see the roof vent was deleted at the factory and the tach doesn't have an hours indicator. You can tell it was Gov't owned because the radio was removed to provide a hole for a toggle switch.

Before it became a fire dept tanker, it was a military refueler. Tanks and pumps took up all the space behind the cab.

It doesn't cost anything to pay attention.
