Across the country

Doesnt really have anything to do with jeeps but I thought it was pretty cool and would share it with everybody.

About a year ago my best friend joined the army and is now stationed out in California. Needless to say he misses his truck dearly and it was going to cost a fortune to ship it all the way out there (as mush as driving it ) so he asked me if I could drive it all the way there. Whos going to say no to driving across the country for free?

Anyways here are some pics of the truck and it explains exactly why I dont mind driving it that far lol

When its not yours a diesel is a diesel! Plus ive never driven something this nice (Interior and exterior wise) before lol. Plus its balls out fast. Spartan 310 with a DPF delete and some other things. I cant remember the exact numbers but I believe its around 650-700 HP and 900-950 ft lbs of torque. All I know is it will sling your *** back in the seat

Any where but the USA they do. Ford leased the blue prints to dodge in the US.
