    This is a little odd. I wonder how much suspension travel these trucks have? It doesn't look like much.

    This one is a 44" conversion Landcruiser. They do all different conversion. Seems they build artic rescue vehicles.

    They are based in Iceland. One of my Nesletter subscribers sent me the link.

    Yeah back when I had a CJ7 and was reading all of the off road mags there were quite a few articles about these trucks,the guys drive those things to places that are just amazing.They used to have pictures of their engines compartments just jammed full of blown snow, to the point that the engine would no longer turn over.Alot of guys in iceland seem to have those.As for the suspension travel,seems it would only go as far as the fenders,but i think they are looking more for snow flotation so they can traverse glacers.
