    Hi All:

    Yeah, that is a cool rig, but too bad about the lack of wheel flex! guess that is what a rear 'locker is for! ;)

    Regards,

    Alan

    Love the "serious" tone of the aux lamp covers being taped in place. What's with the skinny jack-like things holding up the rear in the top shot? Onboard jacks? Seems like having feet on them would be smart for field use.

    Isn't it because of that unusually large anti-sway bar on the rear?

    I guess they will be looking for high speed stabilty. The sections where some flex is needed are relatively short and not severe .
    The cruisers flex/clearance will still be better than most of the other entrants.

    We get this free to air every day so Ill really be looking forward to cheering for the 75 series:D:D:D:D

    Or is that a 73/74/75 series hybrid??. It has the fold down windscreen and 75 series cab chassis roof but the sides look too high for a 75 series ute.

    Why do you suppose 3 out of the 4 spares are scallopped less aggressively than the rest, including the tires on the rig? Only the second from the left spare has the shoulder aggression.

    From the location of the fuel tank, it has to be a 75. Maybe they used MWB panels for the bed. Lucky you seeing these on TV.

    Funky snorkel huh? To keep it ahead of dust thrown by its own front wheels?


    Tyler, the tires without the sidewall threads look to be the old (non-KM) BFG M/T's:

    All I see is the panhard rod, and a bar on the bottom of the rear bumper.
