Up there they probably don't even know what an RTI scale is. They build those bad boys for sheer floatation and the ability to track through some nasty stuff.

I've seen some nuts russian/iceland videos though, they really beat the piss out of those rigs.

I don't know, I like that.

I think it's a well done build with a specific intention in mind. It's not your everyday Cragar Steelie'd 2.5" BB Heep.

With the money he spent on that build if he wanted to make a Jeep with great articulation or precision handling, he could have.

I second that comment (mainly because I couldn't have said it better). I also like the look of it.

Just so everyone understands why it's built that way, the terrain is mostly ice and snow, they need massive wide tires for traction and in the event they break through the ice, those big tires actually help it float, they really don't need that much articulation. I'm sure he built it for purpose and not looks. My buddy was stationed up there for a couple years and I've seen all his wheelin pics and heard all the stories. That's how they build them up there. The flares are not supose to be for looks, it's the law up there, if your tires are wider than the body, you have to cover them with fender flares or you don't drive.

Kind of like how people buid their rigs out west for crawling rocks, people build them different for muddin down south. Then you have those that build them for going to the mall Just wanted to get out the reasoning for why it looks like it does.
