SBFR Dive Rescue 6 is a (entirely custom) 2017 Freightliner MT-55. It is a walk in pulls Rib 1 and 2. This truck is so busy it has its own 3 dedicated personnel that staff it out of Station 6.

Because of how far away the other (currently unnamed) SBFR Marine station is, this truck is entirely independent, with suits for 3 divers (2 normal and 1 RIT) as well as an outdoor shower, and lots of other equipment.

I'm actually quite happy with how it looks....

Erm... the front end is a little wonky... Needs some smoothing out at least, how come the extra half plate deal? Seems to cause way more problems then help from what I can see. The front axle should be a stud forward, and definitely raise it at least a plate.

The front is probably one of the weirdest and wonkyest builds I've ever done, but it was hard to grab the look of the IRL rig. The half-plate wasn't intentional and was a byproduct of the wonky building, so isn't removable. With the axle I'll take a closer look but once again the byproduct of the weird front design means its hard to make integral changes without screwing everything up...

 

I'll definitely give raising it  plate a try, but like with some of the other SBFR rigs, I might prefer it low-riding.

What caused the half plate? I can't see anything.

That whole front section is on a jumper plate (located just above the front wheel well) to accommodate for the SNOT building techniques used in the front.

I still don’t see any snot that can’t be worked out... I might be missing something internal but I think it can be done without the half plate

RN my digital building has been paused (PC is currently getting fixed) but when its back up and running I'll take a look.
