That reminds me....where are our dunes?  Dunes would be the easiest thing to put on the map - almost nothing but rolling terrain and a sand texture.  We should have had a huge dune area.  :(

 

 

East side of the map, dude there's a place with plenty of dunes.  I take my off road vehicles there all the time.

I like the 6x6 more the the sanding but just to clear things up
It's not military based actually the real life military ones only have 4 wheels like the original dubsta
The 6x6 is based on the g63 amg 6x6
Which is actually designed to be on sand
Not really for dirt
It's also 650 thousand so most people who bought it dont even do that with it
So for people saying its a better off roader your actaully wrong
It's not designed for that its a dune truck
It's low for a truck of its size because there are no rocks to worry about scraping in sand dunes
It has 6 wheels because of the low traction on sand if one or 2 wheels lose grip it can keep going
Irl also doesn't come with a bull guard because dune trucks don't need them
I love the dubsta for what it is but it is not a offroader in the sense of what people are making it out to be its not ment for mountain trails its a dune truck not a all terrain
The sand king is a better off roader
Because its designed for that
Higher clearance
Lighter
much better turnin radius
The dubsta 6x6 better competes with the rebal as they are both dune trucks

actually, no

it is military based

it is also designed to be an all terrain vehicle, not a dune truck

Off road and on road it's alright but it's 4x4
Cause only the 4 back wheels work so it's not a 6x6

i think you meant to say its 4x6 lol

 

but all 6 wheels work, flip it over or get the front wheels stuck somewhere and can it, the front wheels have power but not much at that

The Bugatti veyron has a volkswagon motor w12

I bought the 6*6 but I don't think its better than the sandking. The excessive smoothnes it has over rough terrain kind of annoys me.

 

Ya, superb suspensions systems can be a real drag. Give me a horse and buckboard  :panic:

I ran over a motorcycle and it blew up under my Dubsta. Needles to say the truck was still intact.

When pushed against a wall, you can see the 4 back wheels spinning yet the front ones don't move but I think they have around 20% power in them. They do help pulling you over a ledge when climbing a steep hill. A good comparision to a "real" 4x4 would be the Sandking. Not sure if it's still as it was (haven't used it in a while) but when R* said it was now 4x4, I took it out, put against a wall and all 4 wheels spun (front just enough to make smoke). It was a beast, I should try it out when I can. I was disappointed when the 6x6's front wheels didn't spin but it's there...just a bit. A lot of people say it's 6x6 and we're not noticing but I guess we all hoped for it to be full of power and just climb walls.

leveld up to 100 yesterday j ust to buy a 6x6..  big disapointment. i even let my girlfriend choose colors on it just to accentuate how crappy it is. i think the regular dubsta might be a better offroader.

I love my Dubsta.  Besides the fact that its equal to or better than the Sandking offroad, its pretty damn fast and the handling is great.  I was speeding through the countryside to get to the east end of the map to drive around those mountains and I was going in and out of traffic at top speed without a single issue.  The Dubsta never spun out and I never lost control at all.  Its absolutely amazing.

I would love the option of a center diff lock on all off road vehicles. When you want to go hard in the scrub engage it to bring all axles into an equal power distribution as opposed to this 10/90, 20/80 crap. Add it to the interaction menu or assign it to another button, anything.

Edit: Even an old fashion transmission lock ( hold gear) would make the world of difference in control of vehicles in an off road setting.

Yes I still doubt the power because it can't stop the car carrying the package in rooftop rumble even with the tires flattened....your stats for everything go out the window during missions...maybe its a beast in free roam but on missions its just like any other jeep.

I guess there is driven power to the front axle but it's miniscule haha. Needs to be like the 2 rear axles but from looking closer at the Dubsta 6x6 after posting my comment I noticed there's a differential on the front axle so it is powered lol.

the middle tires on the 6x6 pulls it over terrain that the sandking clears. more power more traction less clearance... I vote Dubsta.

It's 6WD. It has a power bias to the 4 rear wheels which, I presume, is to decrease under steer.

If I ever get the chance to build my own house, it'll be out of the trees from GTA V, then surrounded by the hedges and volleyball nets, as nothing would ever damage it!
