That pic is a couple months old or so of that beast. It's owned by a guy up in Alberta, Canada. Crazy mofo. There's footy of its test drive outta the shop that's floatin' around the web somewhere (I can't find it) You could probably find out more about it if you went to Rocky Mountain LCs website and bulletin board. I liked it more before--but that's just me. To each his own. Here's what it used to look like--those are like 38s on it in this pic. :eek:

And in case anyone is wondering, the height it is sitting there in that photo he calls the "Driving Height"--for driving on the freeways!!! And the airbags raise the frame and body up off the axles like 18 or 20 inches or something. The video was linked on Pirate4x4 somewhere. I bet if you searched there you'd find the link.

I have a feeling if he tries to bring it to Moab again he might run into some trouble with lift height laws...the clearance to the bottom of the axle is almost at Utah's height limit (which is: "...to a frame height of more than 26 inches for a motor vehicle with a gross vehicle weight rating of at least 4,500 pounds and less than 7,500 pounds") Assuming the sucker doesn't weigh more than 7,500--if it does, then the max frame height is 28 inches.

Here's the TippyR on "double-whammy" on golden spike trail in Moab.
