Somewhat surprisingly for successful custom-made trucks, the KRS 58 is born less out of necessity for a vehicle too niche in its specifications to be a mass-produced model, but from a simple question - 'can we make it 8x8?'. Based on a custom chassis, "Bandit" is a conglomeration of separate parts or entire systems taken from different trucks, combined in a single, robust package, featuring impressive mobility off the road as well as an in-built crane.
A very sturdy gearbox optimized for harsh off-road conditions, sacrificing fuel efficiency, top speed and gear count in exchange for three Low Gear stages.
A high-range gearbox variant with increased gear count and top speed, and an additional High Gear at the cost of lower durability.
A somewhat more modern engine model offering impressive power output (considering its age), acceleration and durability with higher fuel consumption.
A revised engine variant with improved overall performance and reliability but lower fuel efficiency.
A heavily re-designed engine variant with a few cut corners to sacrifice fuel efficiency and reliability for sheer unadulterated power.
A specialized gearbox allowing free Low Gear / R Gear transfer ratio tuning. Notoriously fragile and not very fuel-efficient in AWD mode owing to its mechanical complexity.
