The 421 manages alright as the container only weighs ~1870 lbs. A 406 with heavy duty springs should do respectively well. I'd imagine it would be much like having a back hoe on their though, as the center of gravity is definitely much higher.
Hey George. Those pictures are actually from a parade in Kamloops... not sure which one though. I do plan on doing the 406 up to be parade worthy here in Alberta, but I doubt she'll be done until sometime next summer.
I drove my 416 in a July 4th parade a few years ago, and felt a little out of place with all the classic/muscle cars, so I pulled into a slot with all the farm tractors. It seemed to get a lot of attention.
Yup, if I end up doing the 406 up for BigSteelBox, I'll have it painted white and I'll have a bit larger box tossed on the back for shows. I think both boxes should be painted white though, to match the truck ;-] .
Too bad they're so heavy, otherwise they'd make great campers...
