    The Ausies were first with the idea. They do them in all kinds of configuration. If you are interested in it, I wrote an article in Toyota Trails. Join TLCA (see banner ads on this site) and ask them for the back issue. I believe it was two issues ago.

    Pretty much wanted a hard core 80 wheeler with minimal body. No body, no body damage :)
