    Just off the top of my head it is prolly a 9 inch center section. That is what most of the guys ran when I was a kid on there swamp buggies. All though the front appears to be a tractor so it could be the tractor axles.

    Was about to say that he must've had a hell of a time stretching those tires out to fit on the rims, but then OffRoad put up that link. To me, it looks like something NASA would use in the swamplands around Kennedy Space Center.

    That's pretty much the idea :D

    I have some pics of a Ford that I think was in the same thread that does float.. In fact it's in about 20 ft of water pulling a boat :D

    Not only can they float, but they can float with almost a 1 ton of cargo on the smaller models and the bigger ones can float with 15K:eek1: :eek1:
