    Awesome Truck, love the TurboDiesel noise.
    Im looking at getting a 416 Doka, then lifting the cab a bit and fitting a Turbo, and running it as a Daily Driver.

    Nice Work Jason

  10. Timisso1337 says:

    I wonder what kind of MPG it gets.

  11. ThePopeAndy says:

  12. Outdoorsmen44 says:

  13. Jesses001 says:

  14. kphifer1 says:

    Like anything that says magpul on it I’ll never be able afford one and the authorities would make it a pain in the ass

  17. aebrownleeiv says:

    Toyota also wont have the range, hauling capacity, or ability to tow other items like this will.

    I mean really people, not even my cross-country 3/4 ton diesel ‘burban is in the same class, let alone a toy.

    Great work on the mog! Kelvin Kurkowski was my introduction to the beasts.

  18. LeonRFpoa says:

    God what a monster. I bet friggin fault lines get scared when that thing comes pulling up.

  19. jasoncouch01 says:

    well u r kind of right,but this thing used to tow around C5a Galaxies for the millitary and will shunt trains around with hi railer gear, besides i can easilly park it on top or most Toyotas.

  20. pjwhitehouse1 says:

    a toyota pick up can do all the same things only faster and less likely to tip over. looks cool but not practical.

  21. Armand1694 says:

    Is it legal to drive this on a highway?

  22. fordfreak510 says:

    Thanks monster… so what year is it? Like a mid 70′s?

  23. monstermog1964 says:

    Jason…What exactly did you do for Magpul Industries? Did you do the bodywork? Or was it already done? Did your shop do all the design for the bumpers/tanks? I believe that is what the people want to know? Do you fabricate bodies such as this in-house? What turbo are you using? I work with both kinds of turbos and changing a non-waste gated turbos to a waste-gated turbo allthough seemingly different is not that difficult and even easier for diesel. It does sound great thogh.

  24. monstermog1964 says:

    Its a good video. My response to the other persons build question was in regard the actual body build. I was already aware of the electric winch for the spare tire rack. 406/416 its a

  25. jasoncouch01 says:

    @monstermog1964
    The spare is lowered w/ an electric winch. This allows it to be dropped/raised without the engine running.

    I’m pretty sure not just any shop would be able to execute a build like this. There really is a lot of thought into not only aesthetics ,but a truly functional design that is very bullet proof.
    No one has actually built a functioning high horse power waste gated turbocharged 406/416 to date other than this that Im aware of.
    By the way it is a 406, 21″ shorter wheelbase!
