    So this things lives in my neighbourhood. I've seen it a few times lately but never with the camera handy. Grizzly was a company that made logging truck equipment and cabs here and tried in the early 90's to sell these as the ultimate offroad machine. Fairly crazy vehicle up close. Looks like Dana axles but I'l try to grab some photos next time I see it.

    Made by Grizzly Trucks Ltd in
    North Vancouver. The company made
    12 pickups, and 1 9 pax passenger truck.

    Made 12 gauge Structural steel.
    Weight : 5580kg (6 tons)
    Engine : 5.6 L Cummins Turbo Diesel engine
    160 hp. 6 cyl.

    Why do you hate the bears?


    That looks like a totally bad ass logger shuttle, but probobly worthless off-road because of the weight.

    this is the only one I've seen, but I'm guessing like a 45 that has been given a saline drip fortified with human growth hormone.

    I'd say it looks very Disney, in a manly turbodiesel kind of way.

    "In early 1990, employees from the Pacific Truck Company broke away and began the design of a heavy-duty forest truck. The first production run was completed in ‘92 with twelve of the most durable, gritty and commanding trucks ever manufactured. The Grizzly is a remarkable bit of gear. Taller and roomier than a classic hummer, stronger than a tow truck, with a style that is, like the Lamborghini LM002, a little chunky. This is a genuine off-road transport, built for the Canadian backwoods.
