Big Ford Excursion in Iceland

Ford Excursion, originally uploaded by Jarod Carruthers.

When you get bored with having one of the largest SUVs in the world, what should you do?

Make it bigger!

This Ford Excursion is in Iceland, a place with 4x4s are used for what they're made for. The wheel wells have been trimmed at the fenders so larger balloon tires can be used. The entire rig is raised at least eight inches. It's pretty clear from this picture that Icelanders have a different take on four wheel drive. In this frozen land where gasoline hovers around $5-6 per gallon, their 4x4s are bigger, often diesel, and set up to drive on glacial ice.

Innovative and cool!
