    Mods, is it possible to have Keyne's crossposts consolidated into Mitsubishi Heavy Truck so we don't have multiple response threads going, please?

    There is going to be one of these at the Toys for Tots gig that Dave puts on every year. It will be at the Hungry Valley OHV in CA. area this year in Dec.

    Any approximate guess of end weight with fluids, spares, etc? The Fuso chassis should be about 6000 lbs. GVWR 14000 lbs.

    Hi Gary,

    How are you mate?

    5200kg should be a ballpark dry weight for an Australian Isuzu NPS single cab with a Global Warrior conversion. Some obviously come in heavier with a second winch or boat loader or heavy roof racks, etc.......... Full of fuel and water more like 5600 or 5700kg....maximum allowable weight on an NPS or FG is 6500kg so well within limits. A Fuso FG would be around 180kg less.

    New ExPortal member here. I'm looking to "revive" this thread a bit. As a current SMB owner that's looking to the future in terms of what our next vehicle will be, the ATW option intrigues me.

    Are there any more pics and details available, beyond all those I've already seen on the websites and a couple of rag write-ups? Also, are there any current owners that can comment on performance experiences like towing capability, low gears, or anything else a prospective owner might want to know about?

    Also, I'd like to get a sense for the build quality coming out of SMB and is it comparable to their current builds or is it a "cut above" so-to-speak.

    Just looking for real world data and/or additional comments and pics.

    Thanks in advance and looking forward to learning more.

    Perhaps there is a better place to ask these questions and track experiences with existing owners?

    OK, maybe this is the most appropriate question. Does anyone own one of these rigs? Anywhere?

    I do. Just bought SMB's 2015 floor model. Don't tow anything with it though. Was a bit surprised they didn't change out the fenders after increasing the wheel size. I cracked the fenders my first offroad trip. They are replacing them with Isuzu off road fenders from Australia next month. A few minor issues with build quality like short screws coming out, awning sticking, solar panel failure and sloppy butt connection on a another one coming loose. Door limiter straps popping out when wind grabbed them. SMB has been very helpful and professional about taking care of everything and I can't really complain. Cost: $ 280,000.00. ouch!
