I really wish they would concentrate on fixing the one they have… i.e. the Big Red. I would love to be on a team to redesign the BR to make it much much much better. The first major thing they need to do is to complete replace the running gear with the “rubicon” drive chain; but a much larger engine. This would give you the ability to have a high range and low range, very smooth shifting, and most of all, the ability to go down a steep grade without being totally dependent on your brakes to slow you down.
Next, redesign the cab so that you can enclose it during the winter and rain. There is absolutely no way to stop the water from coming in the front during a hard rain.
Never the less, there is a ton of things to do to make it better; it’s great… but it could be so much better.
I would be interested on what everyone else thinks?
