Video: In Russia, Mud & Water is Deeper.

I just landed on this video somehow and found it fairly awesome.  Around the 1 minute mark it begins getting damp good.

Ok, now it’s your turn. Post up links in the comment box to your favorite off road youtube videos. If they are good, I’ll add them into this post for the ultimate 4×4 video bonanza!

DO WANT: Rock Crawler + Rocks.

I often find myself day dreaming about building a rock crawler and bashing it through the woods without fear of breakage. I think about TIG welding the tube chassis together with its fully custom suspension, and using Unimog front and rear axles. Modern turbo diesel power would be suitable, and I might even be convinced to use an automatic transmission (it’s against everything I stand for). It would probably have 2 seats, 4 cup holders, and a nice spot for a large cooler. That way I could bring along a friend, and thoroughly enjoy a horsepower-filled day in the wilderness. Once the picnic is over, I would strap myself back in, turn on the roof camera, fire up the turbo diesel, and blast through the mud, rocks, and trees until I run out of fuel. Then I would switch to the reserve tank and head back home for a nap. Yeah, that would be a good day….
