Josh, it looks like a newer version of what we use to call "draggin wagons". Because they could drag around whatever you hooked to the back of them. Very cool. The biggest I ever drove in the Army was a Hemmit. 8 wheels, awd and a twin turbo feeding into a supercharged detriot diesel V8. FUN FUN FUN! Took one to the beach when we were cleaning up after hurricane andrew down in Florida 1991. You can park anywhere you want!

Working on these old trucks is easy, all you have to do is................................................ ....
That's almost what I said. That is one heavy duty truck. It will handle some serious parts truck hauling. It's even got a bed in it. With the 250 gallon tank you should be able to get 200 miles out before having to refill.
My baby sister and her husband own and operiate a big truck garage here in Ky. with heavy wreckers and crane service and Bobby wants one like the first pic. to put a heavy wrecker bed on, It would be KOOL.
The HEMTT used to be the holy grail of MVs. (Military Vehicles) They were harder to get than armor. One in good condition was around $75,000.
Recently they have been re-classed and have been available on the Government Liquidators auctions. A recovery vehicle (wrecker) in "unknown" operating condition typically goes for around $30,000.
If you want to run out and buy one, keep in mind that some states, such as Wisconsin, will only license it as an "HMV" (Historic Military Vehicle) and you cannot use it as a daily driver or commercial vehicle. Sorry Bob, you'll have to keep driving the F-2.
