    Default Some 4x4's just look right.

    Watching the History Channel and they just featured the Big Foot Monster Trucks.

    The first one wasn't that outrageous, pretty good looking, streetable. I've certainly seen more outrageous trucks on the road. The pic below was the first 'car crush' ever and there's a home video of it. When folks saw it they went crazy, and it wasn't long before Big Foot was booked to do an exhibition car crush at a tractor pull in St. Louis.

    Simpler is better, except when complicated looks really cool.

    the original bigfoot almost looks tame compared to some of the beasts on the street these days

    This one looks right to me. I really hope they make it to production.




    They have a pile of videos on YouTube covering testing, assembly, and a bunch of other topics.

    I really like the 'ute's in Australia I saw. Common sense vehicles with the right stuff.

    We have them in the State's, but there's too many show trucks in the way to see'em.

    I know that most Russian vehicles are rather miserable places to be.. but I always liked the Niva

    And on that note LRDG did very well with Dodge and other US products. But I prefer my home grown.

    Who needs a 4 x 4 when you can bury your hire car near up to the lights, out in the Empty Quarter of Arabia - and still get out without assistance
