Building a 6x6 vehicle
When driving in hard off-road conditions the modified 4x4 vehicle is amazing. But driving a 6x6 in rough conditions is a blast compared to the 4x4! When driving a 6x6 Arctic Truck you get more flotation and traction, resulting in an easier drive on soft terrains such as snow and sand. With the extra axle you also drive more easily over rough terrain, resulting in less pitching and more comfort for the passangers. The 6x6 can also carry a lot more weight than a 4x4 vehicle.
