None. But I clearly know a lot more about trucks than you do.

I know trucks. None of this is hard. For Oshkosh, it's a breeze.

It's nothing like as hard as you think it is. A truck is a truck is a truck. Go check on the differences between your Eagle 4x4 and 6x6. Not as much as you might imagine.
