Thought you might want to see my latest hunting wheels.

Its a Kenworth semi chassis known as the Dominator model, which includes the eight rear wheels for handling those trips to the rifle range.

FEATURES:

Fits under MOST bridge underpasses.

The first SUV to be rated in Gallons per Mile by the EPA.

Meet interesting people while waiting in line at Interstate Weight Stations.

When I signal a lane change and I can't get in all I do is honk that really cool air horn!

It has lots of road-hugging weight for occupant protection, the ULTIMATE in safety.

Can seat 20. Go ahead, take all of your hunting buddies.

Can tow one HELL of a bass boat!

And its fun to drive! :p

Dont forget the quad Dillon 650s bolted to the back wall, and the flatscreen Dolby 5.1 movie setup for watching Way of the Gun while waiting for a lane to clear up.

So I'm not the only one thats been thinkin it would be awesome to lift a peterbuilt onto some 5ft field tires, and make it 4 wheel drive?

Overpasses? No...those would be speed bumps;)

I am glad to see you are supporting Al Queda with that thing. Terrorist :)

Why do you guys want something that doesn't even exist?
Take a look at UNICAT (http://www.unicat.net) instead.
Here is one example of a vehicle to bring you and your guns to the range:

Even has something to go out to those 500 yard targets:

Squirrelnuts -

I was going to tell you I wasn't too worried about gas mileage, I own my own oil fields and refineries and have one of my tanker trucks follow me around where ever I go just so I don't have to buy terrorist oil!

But I thought doing that would be pulling you chain a bit to hard.

I see most the others who posted knew this was a joke. Sorry you bit so hard you swallowed the hook. :D

Check out this web site its full of nice SUVs. This is what it says on it's home page...

Welcome to the original SUV satire page on the web!

Schuey, these things are toys for the rich (and bored?) in middle Europe.
They'll get you anywhere, and that in the amount of luxery that you are willing to pay for. Insulated for temps between -40F and 150F
Costs more than a house, but what the heck. :cool:
Been toying with the idea of buying a used one, and living in it instead of buying an apartment. You sure have everything you need, exept for space for the reloading press. :eek:
Have to check if I won the lottery first... ;)

Kobun: When it includes a CRANE to handle the spare tire and 158 gallons of fuel storage, you know its hardcore off-road. Its also good that a car-alarm is factory installed, I wouldnt want my expedition cut short because somebody drove off with my wheels.

For anyone that's having a problem finding it on the unicat website, its model UM 12-HD, under expedition mobiles. The only feature missing is the pintle mount for a Ma Deuce.

Kobun, this is the one that I want..

Oh, yeah! This ( Mercedes Unimog U-2450 6x6) is just what I need, it's perfect.:D
But, what's up with that price.* $ 398,000 Euros *:what:
and it's not even new.. It's PRE-OWNED !!:eek: ;)

Schuey, personaly I'd go for one of the bigger MAN trucks. I would prefer space over off-road capabilities. This because if I were to get one some day, I sure couldn't afford to have a house/apt also.

But I need my "off-roading capabilities"!!:p :D
I'm not going to throw down that kind of money if it can't SLING some serious mud.. LOL!
I couldn't afford to have a house/apt also.
I couldn't afford one anyways. I'd need to win the Lottery as well.:D

I want this:D .
Danish Army WM300 Open Cabs Power Wagon
http://www.vintagepowerwagons.com/products/vehicles/europe/images/124-med-softedg.jpg

SPECIAL CLOSEOUT PRICE !
All these open cab Power Wagons now sold in "as-is" condition without power takeoff and without winch assembly -- NOW ONLY $1,500 TO $2,000! (PTO and winch are available extra.) Yes, these trucks need some work, but when was the last time you saw a WM300 Power Wagon in this price range? Low mileage. These have been outside for a number of years, so paint is peeling, some rust on fenders and cab; most engines have stuck valves from sitting. The trucks are fairly complete: most of the parts that would be hard-to-find are on the trucks. We stock a complete line of repair parts for these vehicles. The tires are not new, but still have good rubber on them. Nearly 20 of these WM300's to choose from. (Get yours now!) This price is below our cost -- remember we brought these trucks in from Denmark! TAKE A LOOK-WHILE THEY LAST!

Schuey, you ever drive a 4x4 8 to 15 tonn truck off-road?
It is incredible how they get around. Believe me! :cool:
Those that I have driven have of course had gun-racks, for the G3's. :)
And if you got stuck, you have that wonderfull 45000 lbs winch mounted on the frame underneath...

Right now though, it seems like I'm blowing all my money on guns. Oh well. Guess everyone has to make his choices... ;)

Not yet, maybe one of these days.;)
It is incredible how they get around. Believe me!
Trust me, I believe ya'..:D It sounds like a blast!!
Those that I have driven have of course had gun-racks, for the G3's.
I need to visit Norway one of these days.:D Your making me jealous.
Right now though, it seems like I'm blowing all my money on guns. ..
I'm in the same boat as you, Kobun. Even if I did have the money to afford one of these rigs, I still wouldn't buy one.. I'd be spending all my wealth filling that "full auto" void in my collection. Hehehe.:D

These guys have some cool toys too. A colleague was looking over my shoulder as I looked at the T55. His comment was: "Cool, but I wouldn't want to pay for the diesel." :)

Nice tractor for a poor mans Peterbuilt:D Is it twin screw? It would almost be a believable tractor if it had a fifthwheel. Would be one hell of a condo cab for the over the road guys:D

I was a little worried about figuring how to pay for one until I saw they take MasterCard and Visa! :D

Thanks for the offer,Kobun, that was a very thoughtful gesture on your part.;)

But, I don't envision myself heading over the pond in the foreseeable future..:)
