Russia's Unstoppable 4x4 Finally Meets Its Match In Texas

Truck YeahThe trucks are good!

More than two years ago we were introduced to the Sherp–a heroically unstoppable 4x4 tractor thing from Russia with 63-inch tires. I sort of figured it would be relegated for official use only. But don’t worry, some mud-bogging boys got ahold of one and plopped it into a pit of Texas clay.

I’ll save you the suspense from reading this video’s title and explain that, yes, the Sherp did get stuck. Sort of. As the camera guy points out a few minutes in: “If we had eight hours,” it’d probably paddle its way back to solid ground.

I just think it’s fun to watch those enormous wheels churn the Earth. You wouldn’t catch me driving into a mud pit like that in my Scout, though. It’d probably just disappear forever.
