What in the name of Mad Max do we have here? I guess I shouldn’t ask a question that I already know the answer to. This post-apocalyptic project truck is called by its creator a concept tactical assault vehicle. It was built in Hawaii and is now for sale.
What is this truck from the Tactical Assault Concept project?
According to our friends from silodrome, this unusual concept was built in Hawaii on the rolling frame of a 2007 Chevy Silverado 3500 Duramax Dually. This modern Dr. Frankenstein then built a steel frame that bolted to the original body mounting points. The actual body was made of ⅛” steel.
The massive weight of the truck is controlled by a rebuilt four-link front and rear suspension with Baja trophy truck trailing arms on the bottom at each corner with 2″ DOM arms on top, monster truck sway bars, 2.5″ Radflo remote reservoir shocks and an AirRock adjustable air suspension system.
Given the enormous weight, the brake also received a major upgrade to a 6-piston Brembo system from a Porsche Cayenne GTS. The original 6.6-liter Duramax LBZ remains the engine of choice, paired with an Allison 1000 6-speed transmission.
Inside the monstrosity there is room for five seated people. There are two bucket seats in the front and a three-person bench in the rear. It also has four gull-wing doors. The headlights come from a 2018 Camaro, and the taillights are described as “Lamborghini-style.”
Last but not least, the TACV rolls on four Michelin XZL tires that measure 54″ tall x 26″ wide on 21″ x 21″ wheels on three-piece wheels, attached to series front and rear axles. Axletech 4000.
Can you buy a tactical assault concept vehicle as a civilian?
Sure you can, for the small sum of $65,000. One potential drawback worth noting is that the truck is in Hawaii, where it was built. The owner says shipping the truck to the mainland will cost around $3,000.
The shipping fee is not the only money you will have to spend on this wandering battleship. This post apocalyptic project truck still needs some work. Silodrome says that the vendor is selling this meatloaf with some work still to be done.
Items left to finish the truck include:
“Install suspension travel sensors and air suspension timing system. Synchronize door actuators. Connect and charge the AC system. Complete stabilizer bar links. Install the hood hinges. Extend the front driveshaft to fit. Minor wiring termination.”
