The Sandking XL is one of my favorite vehicles. It has decent handling, is great off road, and best of all... You can plow through players vehicles with it. I find myself driving my Sandking more than any other vehicle. I don't kill people, I just drive around and plow through them with it. The feeling when you send an adder flying through the air at 20mph is great. I would post a picture of mine but I don't know how :|

 

P.S. People, please stop putting high end/sports rims on your Sandkings, it looks hideous.

The best part is that you can make the rear bulletproof if you buy the double rollbar customization option in los santos customs

That you can drive a Sandking XL into a subway station and go right over the barriers that'll stop any other vehicle in also good.

I didn't know that made them bulletproof. Good to know

I've got a swb & a xl between my 2 characters. Love them. Fun to drive even if you're not off-roading

I wouldn't say they are the best for ramming and such, it's quite easy to flip a sandking xl or not when you use a turismo or cheetah, works best when you aim for the tires head on, especially funny when you get someone coming straight at you thinking he will own and ends up on his roof as it has quite high ground clearance.

IMO a mammoth patriot is better in terms of ramming, especially customised ones as they are basically just rocks with wheels.

the Sandking is King of the road? Please... It's not even the heaviest vehicle that can be stored legit anyway, the Patriot and Bodhi weigh more. 

Here is a vehicle worthy of the title:

No, they most certainly do not weigh more, the Sandking's rims & tires are at least a half ton themselves

It's weird, I managed to shoot the rear glass, although you don't hear the broken glass fx.Though you can clearly look through the glass.
With the bed cap, the black glass remains intact but then you hear the broken glass effect.

Im pretty sure the rear is bullet proof with the cab as well. I have a cab and never get shot from behind or even the rear sides. No pic available, Ill post one later.

Cosmetically wise, it would make more sense if the bed cap was bullet proof.Gonna switch to that, for a change:)

I'm going by the in game files R* made, not reality.

 

You can find the data for vehicles quite easily through google, modders have found them, and some people can change them with iso mods (e.g so a car weighs as much as a tank).

 

Sandking = 2400KG

Patriot= 3500KG

Packer & Phantom (Semi Truck Tractors) = 12,000KG

Ever tried turning a partiot? Its a land barge. Not sure if this is true, but from my experience they are also incredibly weak in terms of strength. I've tried ramming with alot of other vehicles, but none of them seem to have the same effect as the sandking does. I'll try out the patriot tomorrow and see if its any good.

 

Its not just about ramming, though. The clearance can be useful, I use it all the time to drive over guard rails and walls in general. Its ramming ability probably comes mostly from its height. The point of impact is higher than that of normal vehicles, so its much easier to flip over vehicles instead of just ramming them and pushing them 10 feet.

I do like the Sandking, but sadly it is not 50/50 4WD. I much prefer my Rancher XL. I honestly think the Sandking is overrated and that is why I don't have one. It is good for climbing over high rocks but it really is not that GREAT offroad.

I really wish they would make the 4wd stronger.

It would be nice. I think, if I am not mistaken, the Dubsta and the XL have better 4WD ratios. I just dislike the fact the XL is less rare now, WAY less rare since they sell it.

Earler today I found and fully upgraded a patriot to test it out... Its obviously heavier, but really all it does it push vehicles about 20 feet. The Sandking is more dramatic in its ramming. I also noticed the patriot has horrible braking and understeers like no other.

Patriot and Bohdi may weigh more but the SK excels at ramming because of the higher point of impact. The King hits most vehicles in their upper half and throws the wheels up. The Patriot and Bohdi hit lower on the doors much closer the the center of gravity and results in more slides rather than flipping the target. Also, those two are still subject to being hemmed in by guardrails and low walls.
