You think your suv's are big?

We live in a mining state. When they discard those old mining rigs, where do you think they go? Our roads, of course!

What soccer mom could hold her head up without one of these?

You wanna talk fuel mileage? If you have to ask, you can't afford it. This baby'll carry more pounds per gallon than anything out there...

Hummer schmummer, if you can't run with the big dogs, stay the hell off the road...

If it ain't got a staircase running across the grill, it just ain't a truck.

That would be great for the 508 or RAAM as a crew vehicle. Could carry a whole bunch of bikes and parts, plus with that following you you'll never get run over. Can it keep up down 60 mph mountain descents, though?

Is there a camper conversion available?

In big pit mines, you must drive on the "wrong side of the road". It is a scary sight to come around a corner and see a Haulpak coming your way. Your first reaction is to try and get on the "right side of the road".

I used to do a lot of consulting work for mines in Nevada. Returning from a family trip at Lake Tahoe, I needed to stop in and visit a client. He offered lunch and I told him about the family waiting in the car. He had a better idea: he took my 4-year old son and 8-year old daughter into the cab of an idled Haulpak.

What great fun.

One tire for one of these babies is over $20,000.
