    Tonight I had it out in the new snow-- 18 plus about 8 more so I would say after compression due to heating from the sun it is about 24-25inches deep. I don't have chains on it yet, but I do have about 4,000lbs of ballast-- it was 16-20mph in this snow no problem. Well that is on the flats it didn't like the hills too much.

    Do you have a winch on that?

    The video clearly shows this truck to be winchless.

    Well that is what I'm forced to do when I've yet to install my 3 ARB airlockers in the beast. However, I purchased some chains for it. That should help. But still the ARB's will go in it eventually-- once I get the stamina to remove all three axles and rebuild them. Perhaps, I'll have some one else do it.

    I just cannot find the Mog I want... Well there is always time to search. Tatra's are nice too. Big-- maybe too big. But nice. Well built vehicles as well. In the off-roading expedition community they are KINGS for sure perhaps only challenged by MAN. Right now I have no time for a Tatra. Another good truck are the Russian Urals-- they work horses of Siberia. They put new meaning to keep it simple stupid. But they do an amazing job in Siberian oil fields and such. I don't think the design of the truck has really changed since the 1950's. Kraz from the Ukraine are really tough trucks too-- I think they have some nicer features then the Urals-- like cross axle differential locks.
