I was perusing 500px.com (a photo site) tonight and came across this beast and thought it was interesting. 500px won't allow easy linking to photos, so you have to go to the page:

Basically, it's a Toyota HiLux (Tacoma) with a custom camper in place of the bed. He says about it:
Being a photographer means being on the road the biggest part of the life. After years of saving money I designed a rolling home for a photographer which brings me to places where common campers can't. Say hello to my new rolling basecamp - the Hilux Expedition. This summer I'll bring him to Iceland for 2 month and in 2017 to Australia and Tasmania for 6 month.
240l Diesel tank
45cm ground clearance
3 locking differentials
Shower with hot water
Diesel Glycol heating
4000W 230V on board power
39'000 lumes light power in the front
He then posts a link to his site for more info, but it's all in German. Anybody around here know German better than Google Translate does?

Plenty of pictures, though.
My "holy crap" thoughts:
- Using my flawed head math, his 240 liter diesel tank holds about 54 gallons or so.
- 225hp out of a 3.0 diesel. My 6.0 is rated at 235hp. Can I do an engine swap and quit worrying about oil cooler issues?
- 3 locking diffs? I don't even have ONE!
...I could go on...
