Wanted to try making something with wheels for once :)

Pictured is the default vehicle and a soldier loadout.

Those are fantastic, nice work!

The seats blew me away! Padlocks are indeed magical parts, need to get some more of those.

Modified the Jeep to make a transport truck:

These are both really great. I'd love to have them on the table!

The only thing taking away from it for me is the legs sticking out so far on the open truck. That's a tough one to solve.

A headlight on its "back" with two 1x1 plates, a 1x1 round plate, then round tile on top, and a 1x1 tile on the front would give the appearance of a seated person with knees bent. If the floor of the truck bed was tiled, the cubbies should still keep them in place. This was basically the recipe I used for my scientist w/wheelchair for a civilian station, but built around a Travis. Edit: image in spoiler.

Spoiler: show

I'm really happy to see some more conventional vehicles, and in holding out hope to get a nice tank or fighting vehicle from you, skrob!

That works well, but it also has to fit in the back of the truck.

I think they would, being half a plate shorter and 1.5 studs narrower than the current arrangement, if brick math serves.

The main problem would most likely be the backs of the headlight bricks sticking out the sides

I've solved it.
