Sorry I can't help you, although I did check it out on the RC4wd site. Then I knew I had seen one of those before! In 2012 I drove across the Simpson Desert here in Australia. At the end of the crossing is a tiny town called Birdsville. This truck is owned by the Road House and is used to rescue stranded 4x4's (for a couple thousand $$!!) that didn't make it across the desert.

This is one of my pics, but if you google 'Birdsville recovery vehicle' or 'Simpson Desert Recovery' you will find heaps more pics. It is a bit of an Aussie icon.
