Great 'fishing' and welcome to the 'Yellow Iron Funny Farm'.
Just out of 'kew-ree-ossity' and if it's not a rude question, what make is the 'backscratcher' on that D8H? The shanks look as if they may be Cat but I've never seen a Cat ripper that looked like that one.
Re the 2U's being small compared with the D8H, there was only(?) about a 9-ton jump in size between the two models, in various steps through several other models.
That 6T D7 even has the spare cable reel peg on the left side of the hard nose. About all you need for that is a Cat #25 DDCCU and the power take-off shaft. (He, he, he.)
Keep those photos coming. You've landed amongst photo piranha's here.
