TAK-4 Independent Suspension System

Improved off-road capability. Increased payload. Unmatched combat performance.

Oshkosh Truck' patented TAK-4 suspension allows for faster stopping, better cornering, and is far more off-road capable than most straight-axle vehicles. It is combat-tested and combat-proven, having demonstrated proven performance in both Iraq and Afghanistan theaters.

TAK-4 Delivers:

  • Improved ride quality

  • Better maneuverability

  • Reduced braking

  • Less maintenance.

Oshkosh Truck's patented TAK-4 Independent Suspension System has experienced tremendous success on more than 8,000 tactical trucks since its introduction on the Marine Corps MTVR (Medium Tactical Vehicle Replacement ) in 1998. That success has also been proven on thousands of custom fire trucks built by our fire truck subsidiary, Pierce.
