Your normal off-roading enthusiast would probably pick a Jeep of Toyota FJ Cruiser as the basis for their go-anywhere machine, but Fred Williams of Motor Trend web show Dirt Everyday isn’t your normal off-roader. He’s built all sorts of whacky creations since his truck and SUV-focused show has been online, but his latest brainchild is perhaps the most outrageous.
Inspired by Mad Max , Williams partnered up with tire supplier Maxxis to build the 1973 ‘Mad Maxxis’ Plymouth Road Runner. Thanks to Fox suspension, the Road Runner sits much higher than it did when stock and is no longer phased by jagged rocks and desert terrain. Williams also yanked out the V8 engine and replaced it with Cummins’ new 5.0-liter V8 set to find its way into the Nissan Titan for 2016 to ensure it has the torque necessary for off-roading.
Skeptical about the capabilities of a muscle car modified to go off-road? We were too, until we saw just how competent it was in the video above.
