Truck YeahThe trucks are good!

This is way cooler than that Nissan Amazon found a giant box for, it's a damn five-passenger hovering tank with a kickass stereo and nice patina to boot!


Though it sure doesn't look like it could carry five people in the pictures on the unusual Amazon listing, I can't imagine any part of this could possibly be fake so I'll take the seller at their word.

3 and 1/2 stars from 292 reviews? Man, if that's not enough to throw your twenty g's down for a rockin' rolling war machine you're one stingy som'bitch.

Tecumseh engine! My old shop teacher loved Tecumseh, swore up and down it was superior to Briggs & Stratton just about every day. Or, maybe it was the other way around. Regardless, if 6 HP is enough to send this thing to 40 MPH it's gotta be one well-designed little thumper.


People have been reviewing this thing since 2005... I haven't seen many of these Dalek-looking bad boys crushing insurgencies on CNN, but it looks like there are a lot of satisfied customers out there.

Thomas Dunham called it "a tank he could trust," in a review any of us would have been proud to write:

"I'll admit it. Shopping for a personal tank can be a bit daunting. Many times in the past I've purchased overpriced, so-called "battle tanks", then driven them into battle only to be wrecked in ten minutes by the first blow off of some insurgents home-made morter.

But not this baby, no way.

This tank R-O-C-K-S! Literally- the 400-watt sound-system keeps me rockin like a crazy man as I'm dishing out justice commando style. Wow. I just can't say enough. And the kids love it, too- imagine the look of terror in the eyes of the enemy as I'm dropping off my kid's team to their soccer game. Shock and awe, my friends, SHOCK AND AWE!

I had NAO install the optional GPS-guided white phosphorus missile system, and talk about *SWEET*! Burn baby burn!!!

Oh, it also has plenty of room for groceries, and if you need to like move a loveseat or something it'll fit if you use a little bungee cord.

The only real negative with this tank is that it shows up on radar a little more than I like (although there is a polyresin graphite stealth model available). Also, the included spare isn't full size.

Overall, a great tank."


If you've bought a JL421 Badonkadonk tank and used it in the field, I want to hear from you and we'd love to get our hands on it for a road test.
