Yeah, I've kinda wondered why this hasn't catched on in the US. I mean, ford 9" with unimog-type joints are practically boomproof and the steering angles are ridiculous.

Only Mud? Catch up? That's funny considering the rock guys are just now catching up to the mud guys in a lot of ways. Tube frames? 2 decades ago. 9"/Portal combos? Buddy of mine practically gave away a complete chassis with that setup - built sometime in the early 80's. Low COG? As long as I can remember. Mid & rear engine? Please. Beadlocks? They were everywhere when I got serious in '93.

And yeah, the stuff the guys do in Iceland is as sick as it gets. Never say "only_________" when there's knowledge & technology that you may eventually want to steal for what YOU do ;)

Sorry guys if I offended you! The rigs in this post are Badazz. I just don't get the need for a tight steering radius to blast through the mud. Enlighten me please...
Also, thanks for pointing out that the midwest taught the westcoast about tube chassis.... MMMM, Mint 400, Baja 1000...?
