It's very common in Texas: Buy a $55-$60k tool, and render it completely useless.




In keeping with the spirit of this thread, this pic was captured by an inmate, at the Harvest Classic Rally, last year...Napco conversion...

If you look at the leaf springs, you would need a kidney replacement if you drove it anywhere for any length of time too, them things will ride rough!

You drive it up and down the main street in town showing everybody how cool you are for having a jacked up rig with street tires. Better yet - you put monster mudders on it and wear them out on pavement.

We call them I-5 4-wheelers around here.

Make sure they're Bias Ply Interco Super Swampers so they wear out really fast then howl like a banshee down the highway.

They DO come in handy here during the spring flood season. One of my neighbors had one jacked up that high (but a "mudder" not a Show Pimp like this one) and he would ferry people to their property & back and police/EMS as needed when the roads were well covered.

If that is "too much lift", then these are examples of "not enough lift".

We recently did a long Interstate Highway trip to Wisconsin in the Stalker Van... mostly on I-80. Saw thousands of trucks, but only one cabover; a really cool, well kept KW that looked a lot like this one:



I miss seeing all the cabover rigs on the road. I still have a soft spot for them.

Problem is that a lot of vehicles float once submerged - even the army truck above.

True. And side-currents, or any currents, are a bitch.

BTW, Dale's "flood prep" was as follows;
- Change to his Tall & Skinny tires.
- Check all snorkles and vent tubes,
- Check all electrical waterproofing, with a good spray/soak from the hose.
- Throw about 1,000 lbs of old engine blocks in the bed, up near the cab.
- Put small john boat w/ 5-hp outboard engine in bed ("Gotta' have a Backup Plan.")



Funny part was that he was the first person around here with a freewheeling propeller mounted to the back of his rear differential, as a joke. As he would pull out of the water it would be spinning. The Old River Rats down on the Meramec thought it was functional.
