4 WHEEL STEERING

I keep my eyes open, but only have a few things, so please add whatever you have.
There is a U1650 with 4 wheel steering rumored to be in Montana, and I believe the rumor is true, but I have not made it up there just yet.

On your first post of pictures in the bottom right it appears they had the differentials locked to make that sharp turn. Anyone else get a tingly feeling thinking about turning sharp on dry concrete with full lock on? It makes perfect sense when looking at the rubber marks...

Surprisingly, I don't have any more than this one photo handy of David Lopez's 404. This one isn't very good, I'll see if I can dig up some others.

OK, so you said nothing about UNIMOG specific 4 wheel steering, how about 6 wheel steering?

Well it is a Unimog forum so that's sorta a given.

How long have you been a fire fighter?

Oh... and thanx for being out there for us when the flames are where they don't below (or we are were we don't belong LOL)

Coach your right, but I also see this as a close nit community of gear-heads who appreciate this kind of thing on occasion. I've been a FF/EMT since 2001, oh and no thanks necessary.

Here is one more of David's 404

Gosh, maybe I should have lengthened my wheelbase and gotten a bigger camper and gotten rear wheel steering for my U500. But I imagine rear steering reduces the GAWR in the rear from 8500-9000kg down to 7200kg. Important for my application.
