The Southbend US6 (G630) was a series of 2+1⁄2-ton 6×6 and 5-ton 6×4 trucks manufactured by the Southbend Corporation during World War II.

The basic cargo version was designed to transport a 2+1⁄2-short-ton (5,000 lb; 2,300 kg) cargo load over any type of terrain in any weather.

Most of these were exported to the Soviet Union under Lend-Lease by the USA during World War II, since the competing TRK 6×6 CCKW design proved to be more suitable for Western Front conditions.


This mod includes 2 trucks: US6 and US6 SWB (Short Wheelbase) plus a lot of addons, many exclusive for each vehicle, some are shared.


  • Custom tires (with custom tiremarks)
  • Custom rims
  • Different frame addons (there are no cargo capable addons since this truck is too narrow for the actual cargo slots)
  • Fully working cockpit on all models
  • Custom skins
  • Custom 7-ton semi trailer

hope you like this, and please leave a comment if you did..or even if you didn't!

enjoy,

Do you have any plans on making the M26 Dragon wagon as it transported Sherman tanks and such during the latter part of the war and i think it would make a great addition to the game.

The 2.2L inline 4 L134 engine you have in the US6 is in fact an engine used by the Willys and not the US6 as the US6 used the Hercules JXD engine, with a 320 cu in (5.2 L) L-head inline 6 cylinder gasoline engine developing 86 hp (64 kW) at 2800 rpm and 200 lb⋅ft (271 N⋅m) of torque at 1150 rpm. So you might wanna correct your tiny mistake so that some history nuts don't go ape **** on you for a little inaccuracy.

hey thanks for pointing that out!
i changed the name (altering it for copyright reasons) but the old name was actually copy pasted from the Unimog :D
i guess you had the same engine as the Willys because they had a matching name in the xml code, probably making so the us6 was using the wrong engine.
anyway everything should be fixed now..and you should notice a big boost in performance since the us6 engine is 5 times more powerful than the Willys!

What is the little pop up vent for? I have no clue as to what it does or why it's there.

i guess it's just to let some fresh air into the cabin

Oh ok i thought it might help the truck get through slightly deeper water or something like that, oh before i forget i was trying to use the gooseneck 4 slot ramped trailer with the US6 SWB and the trailer wouldn't turn is there a way to fix that?

Great truck. Wondering if maybe log loads would work?

Ya know... This game is teetering right on the edge of excellence, but there are too many small things that keep it from reaching it. The whole cargo size thing has blown my mind from day one. Every truck uses the same add-on's regardless if it fits the truck or not. lol not to mention trailers, I love towing a 2 slot scout trailer with the Scout..... Looks absurd.

I wish instead of a new season with trucks and maps, I wish the Devs would rework the old stuff. Scale all the add-on's to the trucks and adjust something's like frame lengths (Fleetstar/AnK civilian).

The mods keep bringing me back to the game, but then after an hour I remember why I stopped playing. This game needs a scaling system both for size and weight, and the physics of truck to ground and truck to trailer need a rework.

I know this isn't the place to discuss this but, I keep mentioning things on the pages of modders that focus on realism. Maybe eventually the Devs will catch wind of these discussions.

Can't wait to try this mod!!
Looks great, thanks.

I feel the same. I play because of the mods. The vanila trucks are crap. I tried to use a vanila truck for the first time in a while and it took for ever to complete a simple task. I have only been playing for about 30-40 mins a day then get bored.

Would be really cool to have an old fuel trailer to go with the truck.
Amazingly done btw

yess a M-30 would be an amazing addition to it

OMG it's so smol! Imgur.com

I guess it's cool and all but I can't think of any use for it. Maybe some will like it as a scout instead of something more carlike.

It might be a good idea to remove the low saddle and replace it with a custom socket saddle that only accepts the custom semi-trailer. The low saddle trailers serve only as humorous options for this truck and the list in the trailer store is looooong.

i use the swb as a maintence truck with the 7ton maitence trailer its literally unstoppable so far. of course this is my first play through and ive only gotten as far smithville dam.

Brimstone667 @dirty1-2dozen

im gonna have to disagree with ya, i still use the crude outa it even with using the vanilla trailers and its a nice option to have so many to chose from, no matter how long the list is, I did the same with my rigs so that folks had the option should they chose
