sure it'd be fun to bust nuts... but i can immagine trying to synchronise both engines to put out the same rpm, without loading one side under compression, nor acceleration. it'd wander no matter what.

oh SNAP! does the steering... suspension... axles...

jeep.. the other white meat

stupid or not, at least give Jeep points for letting the design team goof around and try different ideas instead of just building more mini vans.

Good point Chris! Not sure if I've seen another Concept truck with taking it into the bush as a goal. It does look goofy but you have to give them some point for taking it in that direction

Just looking over the specs.
The engines are not right/left, they are joined at the t-case so they are forced to act like one big V16.
The tires can turn opposite like the photo or "crab" to travel sideways
37" tires
Appears to have a "split" solid axle design (two non-connected difs per axle) with portal hubs
14" of ground clearance and 20" of articulation.
Suspension is a hybrid of solid axle and independant. It has the abiltiy for each tire to move seperatly, but since their is a dif for each tire that moves with the suspension there is no CV type joint to bind. Lift and Flex are only limited by the shocks and drive shaft angles.

looking at that suspension setup, all jeep did was take the buggy out of a computer game called Halo and game and build it, it even looks the same

holycrap tooo many parts to brake the only good thing I see here is the fact it has two HEMIS

what other sport gives you goosebumps a 3mph
