    With the growing popularity of Chase Trucks I wanted to start a thread discussing The Good, the Bad and the Ugly.

    I have been collecting chase truck photo's for a while. I am very interested in hearing what everyone thinks is critical in a chase truck. What style, what fuel, lift/no lift, crew cab, single cab, 4x4/2wd, GPS, radio, sat phone, 120v inverter, generator, welder, air source, winch, fuel tower, tire rack, lighting.

    Great thread and great eye candy! My chase truck is a stock half ton 4 door pick up. It works but...
    I love the thought that goes into some of the teams' chase trucks. Two radios are great for Baja so you can listen to Weatherman and your own frequency, but not necessary for BITD. I love the bass boat chairs and umbrella holder. Typically we sit on the tailgate and fry in the sun. XM radio keeps me sane.
    Keep the pics coming so I can dream!

    Nice thread Rusty...........jeeze looks like some of these guys have more money into their chase truck than their race rigs.

    Definitely some sick looking work trucks.

    I like the Jagged X setup, why carry a bunch of spares when you can just carry a complete car, lol.

    Great thread...Many MANY years ago when Herbst came out with I think were the first race chase trucks we were pitting next to them at Ojos Negros and The Herbst mom was out there and I told her I lked thier trucks..Her eyes lit up and she took me in and out of the truck discribing every little custom function it had. Those trucks were trick. I thnk she said back then they were $250.000 each? I think.

    Here is a unimog from team gordon when I worked there. Those were pretty sweet but the new ones they have are off the hook. At night those lights were like daylight.

    Any more pics?
    Dirt Sports did a great article on chase truck about a year ago, but I can't find it.
    What about mounting an i-pad 2 with 3G in the dash. Works as a GPS, email, etc plus you could load up the IRC page from the interweb and track your car live. The other thing I would add to mine is a secondary fuel tank. Range, particularly in Baja, is important and sometimes when you are chasing you can't affort the 15 minutes to fill up.
