Free yourself from the worry of an inadvertent truck-dunking on your way to the ice fishing hole. Rather than risk sending 8,000 pounds of daily-driver iron to the bottom of Lake Chargoggagoggmanchauggagoggchaubunagungamaugg, inventor Tom Roering has developed an ideal vehicle for ice-crusted outdoor excursions.

The Wilcraft, an assembly of Water, Ice, and Land, is a 500-pound powdercoated aluminum specialty vehicle that treads lightly enough that your pickup will live to die another day. A 305cc powerplant allows for a 600 pound payload, and a two-speed gearbox delivers a top speed of 20 MPH. Traction comes courtesy of a locking differential. Hunting and ice fishing are what Roering's vehicle excels at, and it turns into a fishing shack once your holes have been augered. A price of $10,495 for this specialized machine might seem steep, until your F-350 reinterprets The Wreck Of The Hesperus.
