Man I have been searching over on Pirate and haven't had any luck. Someone had posted a cool video of some guy driving one under water, they guy had scuba gear on because the snorkel went 5 feet over the top of the truck!

But those things are BAD ASS! It would be very cool to tool around town in! Some of them are even multi fuel,they run on Diesel or Kerosene and I have heard someone tell me a few times they had to fill the tanks with Vodka to get back!

I imagine it is slow. But those Rockwell's are cool, and it must have a massive T-case to match. Gas mileage must kinda suck. I saw one on TV and the rear axles articulated independently rather well.

Ever play GTA Vice City? Steel one of these you won't be disappointed.

Ours had a governer (sp?) which is why they were limited to 55. IIRC it was due to tire ratings - i am sure it could have gone much faster. Even the hummers were limited to 55. Speaking of hummers, I'd have pitted my duece against a hummer anyday.

LOL. This was 15+ years ago, and I didn't own it - it owned me (ok uncle sam owned me). But now that I think about it, i don't think I have any pictures even!

I saw one of these late last year. I watched it get broken too followed by some jury rigging to get it down the road. Fun.
