aBout The Build

Because of their ability to reach places that standard vehicles can’t, rescue side-by-sides can change the game when it comes to response time.

As our first responders toil in increasing fire dangers, operating with reduced resources, the Ultimate Rapid Response Vehicle will be a huge asset to those protecting our homes, our businesses, our state, and our lives.

Just like all our Project X Builds, this vehicle will undergo a huge transformation to become the Ultimate Rapid Response Vehicle.
