its probably possible, monster trucks can float in the water

yeah dude bigfoot raced a river boat in the 80s, so a Sami on big ass tires should be a shoo-in. ask 4RnrRick. :gap:

the story you are talking about is in the trucks gone wild vidoes.  they tried it with the sammi on single wheels and it ended up flipping.  they then made dually adapters for "papa smurf"  an old 78 ford 4 dr longbed and they ran 8 tires on it in a lake

I built a sami on 35's for a buddy once that was super stripped...  No dash, just the cluster zip tied to the steering column. No door panels anywhere, not even any shift boots.  It floated just fine.  It was funny to watch him drive it out in the pond bobbing around with water shooting out the floor around the shifters. :hahaha:
Full hydro, 186:1 with an auto and 44's what could go wrong??
