    Check this out... a friend of mine just got back from France and took this picture of the towtruck next to him...

    LOOKS SWEET if you ask me... I'd pay 30k for one!

    But then you'd have to live in France.

    i am pretty sure that wanting to buy something located in France triggers their sales tax so you now owe the french government $3700.

    Hi All:

    Yes, I saw several of those 70 Series tow trucks in Paris last year. I also saw a couple Nissan Patrol tow trucks as well.

    The TLC tow trucks I believe are a medium wheelbase, so a 73 Series I guess.

    Regards,

    Hi All:

    Actually have a pic or 2 of some French Army 4x4s - maybe PinzGahrs?"

    I'm an awful tourist - I try to fake being a Canadian, and forget I have a camera with me 75% of the time! ;)

    Regards,

    i would have to guess either a shortened HZJ75 or a regular wheelbased HZJ75 by looking at the back of the cab...

    about 1/2 way down:

    Hummm...
    Swap in some taller springs and some swampers, and that'd make a nice truck to tow all the broken ass jeeps out of the woods with!!!
