It will take a lot of guts to see your truck flying like that especially in the terrain of the first pic (not much side space). Macho!! I AM INTERESTED.

Kamaz is a russian company and guess what. They make EVERYTHING and I mean EVERYTHING that the need for their trucks UNDER ONE ROOF. Their plant has a wall thats 1.5 miles long. I worked for a diesel engine maker earlier and some of their technology was licensed out to Kamaz and when one of our company guys came back from there he actually gave a presentation on this company. The dakar trucks are rated at 1000hp ~ approx and the torque god alone knows how much that is!!

I truly love big trucks and especially these 4X4 trucks. They appeal to both the kid inside me and my mid-life crisis.
