If you like my trucks, any support is highly appreciated.


This mod started out as nothing more than a challenge to myself. I wanted to take the plain C70 and throw everything at it. Make it into a cool, useful, neat piece of kit. And after tons of trial-and-error, I believe I have landed at something unique. Now it's not without its fault*, but back to that in a second.

Changed over the stock C70 include:

- Navistar engines
- Larger fuel tank
- Tweaked vehicle weight and dynamics
- Added CrawlerBox HD gearbox
- Custom suspensions in Soft & HD
- Added wheel options*
- Winches swapped to Heavy suite with Autonomous Winch HD
- New snorkel options
- Standard 4WD
- Many new frame add-ons
- Lots of new customization options for rescue & recovery
- Mud Tires from Quasimiyao!

Now the known issue as marked by *. The C70 has a really narrow rear axle so some of the rear tires aren't attached to the hubs. I could have adjusted that, but I think it looks silly with a much narrower rear track.

This truck is weird, wild, and just a touch broken. But like a Leatherman it likely will have have you need to get the job done.


I recommend getting FOXCRF450RIDER's Off Road Trailers mod to compliment the increased ride height. Stock has been increased a little bit, and lifted a lot. (An M181 trademark at this point. The rear "emergency" recovery saddle has been optimized for use with the Off Road M747.


I’m still pretty new to XML tweak modding, so drop a thumb and a review, and let me know what you think. Thanks to LoB1325 for helping me along the way.

Hello Mike! I really love this type of trucks, you made something unique that has a purpose. The things on it actually fits, visually as well, which is awesome, I think. I wouldn't use a mod that looks totally unrealistic. So thank you! :)
After using it for a while now, I feel like it could be a bit more balanced. If you don't mind, here is the things I found but I'm not sure if you are still working on this, but still. :)

- 450L fuel feels very unrealistic for me.
- The service cab addon looks awesome, I'd love to use it but it's inferior to the custom pickup bed. I think it should have a bit more repair and the pickup bad should have a littlebit less.

Also I think the metal detector is not working, just FYI.

For some incredibly-annoying reason, I don't see your Kodiak in my Store when I subscribe to your mod (I have several of your other trucks in my garage which I am happily enjoying).

Is it possibly because I'm also using shottyking's SK C70?

Be cool to see the adjustable 3rd axle like the 49x . Awesome mods hope console gets better soon.

Hello Master.
Please, is it possible that one day you will make a version of this Chevrolet Kodiak C70 with two rear axles?
I have loved this truck for quite some time that I have been looking to improve its handling with the addition of another rear wheel axle.
Thank you for your work!
Greetings.

I am actually planning to make a custom truck to take over the mantle of the Kodiak, with a much more tradition frame layout as an option.

Can't wait for a custom truck from you, with all these upgrade options this kodiak has, or even more! :)

Thanks for answering. This is one of the few trucks that only has one axle.
I think that with two axes it will have another performance.
I tried to put another axle on it, I put the wheels in the xml, that's easy, but I didn't have an axle to connect them, I didn't like how it looked. It is necessary to work on 3D images but I don't know how to do it.
Over here there are other addons that have one more axle, but the axle that connects the wheels is also missing, so they are in the air!
If you can put one more axle it will be welcomed by those of us who like this truck. Thanks. Greetings.

I would love to see this come to console

All my mods are console compatible, however Focus & Saber are selecting vehicles manually, so it is up to them whether they approve them. There is no submission process on the modder's end. If you want to see my trucks on console, let them know on the official Discord or Forum.

Hey I've had a thought! What about having the single slot sideboard moved forward a bit. So that it can fit a low saddle on it as well?
That way, it can carry cargo while also lowing low saddle trailers. For instance the mule trailer from Poghrims trailer pack.

Hmm. I’ll look into it. The problem with the Kodiak now is one little change can cascade into a mess of code. But that’s a good idea so I’ll see what I can do.

Dude, that is some serious s**t. I liked the look of the car but the standard was so... meh. Not anymore. AWESOME, what a great Mad-Max-Apocalypse-Zombie-thrown-together-survival Truck. Someone should do this in real life! :D
This really deserves the name pickup-"truck". I don´t really mind the issue with the rear axle because for driving I use a little side-camera angle, so pffft.....

Glad you like it! I have an update planned for release on Monday that will add a few more goodies.

Christ... There is still stuff to add ? :D

The Kodiak will never be finished. That's a promise.

Cool. Is it maybe possible to make some kind of axle extension as frame addon for rear axle or so?
So the single wheels are attached to the rear axle? It looks kinda weird. Moving the wheels more to the inside does not make sense, it would look absolutely dumb.

maxmike181
maxmike181 @maxmike181

Unfortunately spacers aren't possible as an add-on. It's been looked into and the only real way to make it convincing would be a custom set of rims for every wheel. Which is possible, but very impractical. And like you mentioned, this was the lesser of two evils as the offset is much more usable as it is.

jens.meyburg @jensmeyburg

Ok, understood. Just thought about it. I know how difficult modding could be since I make liveries and textures for LSPDFR. The Kodiak will still be my favorite now ;)
