    Mind you that new truck does look 50 years old. And half a line mention of Citroen......

    Wasn't able to upload a better resolution due to size restrictions. But you can search online for that new truck , it's American and called the Bollinger B1 with hydropneumatic suspension......

    As are inboard disc brakes. The original Hummer ( the military kind ) also had inboard discs.
    I have just watched the promo video. The thing looks to ride violently over lush green grass. Maybe the spheres are charged too high for supple movement ( so why bother ??? ). There is a switch on the dash for the air suspension, and from what I can see no reference to height correctors.

    I read somewhere in there about constant ride height.

    They made a statement about disconnectable roll bars ( typically available as an extra on Jeeps ) so if the ride height is constant ( and they make it sound as if there is no "normal" set ride height ) the height correction devices can't be connected to roll bars for to do so would leave the height corrector disconnected too.

    Maybe some other device. Maybe one for each wheel ?

    Damn ugly device .. another Citroen connection perhaps.... remember the FAF .. also plywood IIRC.... if not the FAF there was a plywood bodied 2CV derivative somewhere.

    The Rivian ute looks to be a far better resolved design with twice the range of the Bolinger .. and available sooner in the USA.

    Yes, possibly better trucks around, however the main interest for me was of course the hydropneumatic suspension on the Bollinger.

    They are both very interesting designs, but are far completely different roles. The Bolly is a hardcore off roader workhorse.
    The Rivian is more likely to be a big success especially with the recent Amazon investment.

    FAF wasn't plywood was it? I have been up close to one or two in Bali and they were shonky metal from memory.
