Insane!!!!

Guess it will work on an old school diesel, don't see it happening on the new diesel or gas engines with all the computer controls.

I wonder why they don't make an inflatable dingy that you can tie to the truck to keep it afloat. So one guy swing across, sets up an anchor and pulley system, then just winch or manually pull truck across and it floats once the water gets too deep.

Wow. There's something you don't see every day, for sure.

Thumbs up

Dude has some brass balls. I was just waiting for the thing to die too.

Bulldog, I think you should market your idea and sell through OW.
