    "4x4-Force" is on and everytime this show comes on even though I've seen it a dozen times I watch just to see these guys. They're awesome and man what a rush it must be to pilot those rig up those hills. Has any one else seen this show?

    Been there done that! I was in Keflavik Iceland for a year remote. All of there 4x4 are built to the hilt with everything from the daily driver to there competition 4x4. Only bad thing is all imported american vehicles have a $15,000 to $20,000 tariff if it is used by a Icelandic nation. So a $2500.00 beater is worth about 20 Gs up there.
