Quoting Thomas Johnson Nice, but just because it's a Paramedic equipped unit doesn't mean you have to call it Paramedic Truck 1. I highly doubt any real departments have rigs numbered like that.
Where have you been? A lot of California dept.'s, as stated by Jon, as well as some cities in Florida have Paramedic in the name of Engines and Trucks.

Oh, i missed this wonderful truck. Such a shame.. It's a great new truck from you Jonah. I really like it.

Late. But @ Thomas- Actually there are a lot of departments that number that way. Clark county nevada has all their ALS engines numbered as PE# (Paramedic Engine). Departments in California run Paramedic Squads which are number PS#. Ventura county runs Paramedic Engine companies, which are actually referred to as Paramedic Engine #. Huntington Beach has all their engines and trucks labled as Medic engine/truck. The departments that number this way usually do it to insure the proper medically equipped units respond to medical calls.

@Thomas, actually there are a lot of rigs out there known as Paramedic engines or trucks. Cities with department EMS that are kept in EMS stations usually have 1 to 2 rigs kept there with the ambos. Those rigs are usually known as Paramedic (insert rig name).

Thanks for the comments, ya'll, and sorry for the late reply. I'm going to work on the additional pair of outriggers this afternoon or evening.

Bob, Seagrave does it with a lower tip load according to their aerial spec sheet (Force 100' rear mount, 250#, steel or aluminum). Of course the first example I know of is FDNY. The Seagraves and even the new Ferraras have a single H-style set at the rear. It may not be popular these days but it is possible.

Bob- It's strange at first but it's a bit more common than you think. I believe Seagrave does this with all their ladders. 100 ft Seagrave ladder http://www.shapirophotography.net/fire%20trucks/2008%20Seag%20calendar%20depts/PalmCoast_9096A.jpg Also KME can do 6x6 aerials, there's a department in Nevada with one.

I thought that would be because they were 75' aerials, or aluminum. I searched a bunch of pictures just to be sure. But I see that the pictures posted were 100' and steel. Got to wonder though if the trucks were not spec'd properly or is there are outriggers which would go straight down, but it does't look like it. The creation though still looks rough for the other reasons, plus it looks like it is jacked up. But that is just my opinion.

Quoting Bob K Needs more work.....you can not have a 100' tandem axle aerial with only one set of out riggers.
Actually you can. Don't most tillers have one set of outriggers? Detroit has several 100' RM's. I even found a Seagrave. I don't see why it wouldn't be possible for KME. http://bit.ly/1dYJ1Xh http://bit.ly/1fVAgtH Jonah, I would caution the use of "Paramedic". I'm starting to see a rise in using the term Paramedic.. on rigs nowadays. i.e. you can still have an ALS rig but it doesn't HAVE to be in the title!

Needs more work.....you can not have a 100' tandem axle aerial with only one set of out riggers. Also, the tandem axle looks spaced too far apart. If you move the rear axles closer together by 1 stud, you'll have room for the second set of outriggers. I understand the look you are trying to achieve with the grill, but with the flat window, it looks like a combination of a Mack and a Seagrave. I do not believe the flat windows work well for the KME look. I also believe you need to be consistent with the roll-ups. Either use white 1x2 grill bricks or grey roll-ups. The combo just does not bode well. Also, you should change the yellow bricks behind the front tandem axle to black. The same holds true for the bricks behind the front axle. Change it from red to black.

Quoting BrickCity101 11 Awesome rig Jonah!! I like the look of it as a straight stick.
I do too, when I was building it I thought the bucket might be too heavy to match up with the rear.. But may try it out to see.
