Feb 2004  Here are some updated pictures of the T-Rex. It is now running 42 inch
Swampers, on beadlock rims, and has some added roll bars, skid plates and
new rear springs. One picture shows my wife with the T-Rex running 40 inch
Michelins and two others are of the T-Rex playing in a recent snow storm in
the Jemez mountains.( Swampers).  The photo on the right was taken just before the TTC.

Yes this V10 in this truck can chirp the four rear drive wheels on pavement!!! Way cool!!!
Articulation is out of this world. It will be a great Top Truck Challenge Truck
(Stan competed in the 2004 TTC, see some of the photos on the Four Wheeler TTC pages).
Look for the USA at off-road rallys throughout the US. The official usa6x6.com site
will have appearance details. So what's next? Look here: USA 10X10 Tow-Rex!
 

A while ago I received emails from Stan and Daniel who, after seeing the T-Rex concept Ram, were considering a construction project to build a 6X6 Ram. They promised to keep me updated with their progress. In May 2001, I began receiving project photos. Here they are!

The cost of this project is expected to be only $12,000. It will be sporting three axles, exterior roll cage, custom bumpers front and back, hyd. winch, and a whole lot more. The axles are 2.5 ton Rockwell military versions, which make the OEM Dana 60 and Dana 70 axles look down right puny.

Stan writes: "I plan to do alot of safaris with this truck. I want to go up to the artic and Alaska, and also do a lot of off roading around here locally at Farmingtom, Moab, Teluride, and maybe a trip out to Glamis. This truck has been a dream of mine ever since I saw the first T-Rex unveiled in 1997. As soon as DC scrapped the project I began designing my own. It is great to see a 2 year project finally come to fruition."

See the December 2002 issue of FourWheeler for an article about the T-Rex.
