You got to love those tracks. A snowmobile company in Creste Butte had a F450 Dually set up like that. They said they could go anywhere they wanted to This was a huge truck too, Crew cab, lift etc.

They make these for quads too and even motorcycles, oh to have unlimited $$$$$ to buy all the toys we want.

What were those one that were sale awhile back going for again? Like $25K used or somesuch? IIRC they are in the $30-$35K range new from Mattracks. Sure would take the fun out of the snow run though

I need to create a smilie with a black LX 1/2 buried in the snow. Anyone have smilie creation software?

Default Pics

Not many pictures but here ya go....note how much snow they had dug out from the truck and it was still buried! Also, someone tried to winch it out I guess....note the bumper!
The last pic is a Photoshop crop (zoom) that shows the passenger tire wear (down to steel cords) from spinning against a rock or log when stuck. Unfortunately, Malanie reported back that the trans went out near Idaho Springs on the way down to Denver. What an unfortunate (expensive!) ordeal for Malanie and Paul....glad the Forrest service and Rising Sun could help them!
