"Talk about a strange configuration, this is it. The "Rolligon" is based on a FC-170 cab and drivetrain components. That's were the similarities end. This vehicle sits on four 40" wide rolling airbags. A rubber drive roller drive contacts each airbag on the top and transfers power to make the vehicle move. The airbags pivot up & down slightly via a control arm but do not turn. The steering duties are handled through a frame mounted, hydraulic powered articulating hinge-pivot joint. It has a curb weight of 4500 lbs. and a maximum payload of 4000 lbs. It has a top speed of 30 mph."

I think the more appropriate response would be, "I'd roll it!"

Anybody know of any FC clubs with valid websites? The FC connection seems to be closed.

Any idea what year that one is? Im looking for one and that one is gorgeous, but I want to do it up myself...
And this is a 150, not a 170. 150s are so much sweeter though.

A JK in any configuration could not tow that trailer with 12000# on it. It does look similar though.

And one day I'm going to own an FC-170.

This is a good thread to revive. The FC's are pretty slick and I hope that I have the chance to own one some day. I'd mainly keep it to bounce around town and maybe haul a few things.

Id buy it. $1/lb of clean metal soooo how does $75 sound

Good potential for cutting some metal and fitting beffy tires and axles though.

I'm the only gay eskimo.
