Just informed my Norwegian customer of this. It would fit nicely at his cabin in Sweden.

If I lived where we got real snow I'd rock the fuck outta that!
First truck I'll give a pass on having stacks. I want to know how the steering system is setup and where the hell the fuel tank is.

It just slows or locks a track to turn.

tank is in the cab, filler on the drivers side c pillar.

steering depends on how the tracks are driven.

I'm thinking two master cylinders and a lever off the steering column that presses on either one and maybe another master cylinder for the brake pedal. Or some fancy linkage.
...and an open diff sterling.

There is a reason why tracked vehicles don't use simple differentials. When you slow/stop one track, the other speeds up to twice the speed. The problem is that drag goes up enormously in a tracked vehicle when you turn, so when you need the most torque, you lose gearing.

But I suppose if you have an enormous power to weight ratio, that doesn't matter.

Someone needs to email for the video and post it up here.

And I wonder if that's a homemade track system or the cab set on something else's chassis

This is what I figured. Cheap and easy. The work looks decent enough, and I don't feel his price is out of line. That thing would be all sorts of fun in the snow.

Too bad we don't get snow. I'm sure it would rock in a coastal swap though.

It's neat, but it's lack of ability to carry a thing but driver and passenger bugs me.

@Grendel


it will of course need a fully polished awesome aluminum sled/camper built to tow behind it.

It has a filler neck going into it so I assumed that would be mostly taken up by fuel tank. Once again on me

Someone should e-mail and get that video.

A build thread, or a bunch of pics would be entertaining and interesting.


I'm not doing it though.

There is one of these for sale locally, but not listed online unfortunately. It is based on a newer GM truck and has a powered trailer to tow behind it. Neat, but $$.
