More trickery is on display where the rubber meets the road: Olsen fabbed the aluminum wheels' center sections and attached them to spun aluminum rims; the unique rollers were then fit with OMF bead locks. Tire choice changes depending on the terrain, but the Truggy normally rides on Maxxis Mudzilla tires when blitzing desert trails.
Designing an off-road enthusiast's version of the ultimate on-dirt machine is a tall order; actually getting down to the nitty gritty of building the vehicle is quite another, requiring extreme fabrication talent, a keen touch with tools, and the stamina to see the project's buildup through to completion. Looking at this finely crafted Truggy, we'd have to say that Jeff Olsen has scored a perfect 10 on all fronts.
