I was running up to Dallas to check with KC on some of the final touches on the D110 (which btw is totally friggin badass - thanks KC), and I happened to look over as I was speeding up I45 outside of Huntsville, Tx. What did I see, but a jacked up Range Rover (or should I say insanely jacked up). Looks just like Red Rangie's avatar. So I stopped and shot some picts.

Here they are:

Well.....

IMO, the air springs are the LEAST of this guy's worrries.

:eek: :eek:

I hope the rotational force sideways isn't too strong for those little mounts they've got going on.

However, the rest of the truck actually makes it look like they knew what they were doing, so those spring mounts might be ok.

The FLIP SIDE of this is the suspension and steering. Yikes!

I'll just sit from the sidelines and watch.

I wonder how big the tires are that are planned for that thing, and if the builder knows how weak those 2-pin carriers, axle shafts and CV's are. I don't see very many miles on those axles in this trucks future.

Oh yeah, he's going to need those 'extended' brake lines.

And *I've* been accused of throwing away $$$$ at a LR.

I have to say that this thing is going to be the hottest monster truck on the circuit as soon as they save up enough money for driveshafts and the rest of their airbags!

lotsa flex out of that one, eh?

screw the 2x4/u-joint lifts . . . PIPE LIFTS RULE!!

i don't think anyone has to worry about driving next to him on the freeway . . . .

as a marketing tool, this thing will probably do wonders for his business. a good spectacle will reel them in everytime.

in oklahoma on I-35 there's a HUGE 4x4 big-rig, with trailer, sitting up vertically on it's nose, with the biz name painted on the top of the trailer for all the world to see. looks stupid, but it works.
