thats quite the approach angle
A real life cartoon!
no, just no.
so, what do you do with it?
That thing would be a monster in deep snow.
So, you wanna take it to Antarctica?
That thing should float.
It's like a homebuilt sherp
Turning radius of an extra cab longbed aircraft carrier
That a lot of body cutting to make those tires "fit", if that the right word.
Trade for a Toyota.
A guy at work one time said he saw a Jeep with 44's flip on the road and it bounced like a "Super Ball." This reminds me of his comment.
In a controlled setting, I would pay money to see that
When I first had my '66 CJ5 (V6, 31's) and was living at home yet the neighbor had a CJ5 on 44's and a built out V8. I came home in mine, he was working on his, looked over, and asked if I wanted to trade.
"I built it so big I never drive it anywhere. The only place to go is the dunes, and I don't even need 4WD up there. I miss just jumping in to go get ice cream."
get a wide, wide axle, and the turning radius will improve slightly
What tire poke officer...
I had a buddy back in Nevada, that bought an Early 5, that was on 40"s, sight unseen off of E-bay. He thought it was the greatest thing in the world. Until the NHP saw him going down the road one day, pulled him over, and had it towed. It might have been street legal wherever the hell it was built, but NHP was having none of it.
I don't know if he ever got it road legal to Nevada's satisfaction or not, as I moved and lost contact, but the suspension, and *especially* the steering setup was sketchy as hell. The link from the Pitman to the steering knuckle, it was literally like some 1" tubing, with a gigantic "Z" in the middle of it. It was a rolling death trap, not just for him, but for anybody he was sharing the road with.
man, the Fhead has to work extra hard for them to spin. I LOVE IT!
