The Stradman blown away by “ridiculous” $100,000 Jeep Wrangler 6×6

Auto YouTuber ‘TheStradman’ got a firsthand look at a massive, $100,000 6×6 Jeep Wrangler that seems like something taken directly out of HALO.

Custom cars are nothing new, but the six-wheeled monsters Stradman tested from South Florida Jeep are on an entirely different level.

As soon as the American pulled into the lot he seemed amazed by the beastly vehicle, which even commanded the parking lot from where it was sitting.

TheStradman
There’s a good chance you haven’t seen Jeeps like these before.

Stradman, who’s building his own 6×6 Jeep Gladiator in the next few months, admitted to viewers he had never even been inside one before going down to Florida.

“That thing is ridiculous, it’s fast too!” the auto YouTuber said as the six-wheeler barreled past him. “This is a hybrid 6×6, that is ridiculously cool. The wow factor this thing has on the road, that is insanity.”

Six wheels mean the truck needs three powered axles to drive them all, but only two of these axles are powered by the engine, with the rear one relying on an electric motor driven by a huge battery bank behind the back seat.

This technically does make it a hybrid, but there wasn’t any mention of the gas mileage one could expect for a vehicle that looks more like a tank than it does a regular Jeep.

“I have never in my entire life seen a truck or a Jeep with more road presence than this,” TheStradman admitted. “The proportions of this 6×6 are perfection. There are a lot of 6×6’s that honestly don’t look very good, like they have a tumor on the back end. This looks almost factory.”

No doubt, wherever one of these things goes, they’re going to turn heads – but the monsters start out at $100,000, and you have to wait a month after ordering to get it.

But for Stradman, the wait is well worth it to flex on everyone else in a regular, four-wheeled car – even if that car is a Lamborghini.

“We got the Range Rover and the Lamborghini Urus right there, they look like little baby cars,” he said while rolling around in the 6×6. “Could you guys imagine if you spent $220,000 on a Lamborghini Urus, you’re walking back to your car, trying to flex hard, and this is parked next to you?”

TheStradman
Even though he thought the Urus was no match for the 6×6, the YouTuber said he still wanted one of those as well.

The 6×6 mods Stradman took out in Florida were both based on a Jeep Wrangler chassis, while the one he’s ordering is being built off of the new Jeep Gladiator.

Exactly how tricked out and customized his own six-wheeler will be remains to be seen, but based on his other rides, it will probably be over the top, with plenty of purple both inside and out.

Series 28 of Forza Horizon 4 saw a number of updates and changes implemented, with one of the biggest being the introduction of Horizon Backstage. We explain how to access this new area, and give a rundown of all the cars available. 

The Forza Backstage area was added to Forza Horizon 4 as part of the Series 28 update on October 13, 2020.

Allowing players access to exclusive, ultra-rare, and hard-to-find cars, the Backstage area is an exciting new addition to the game. Along with making it easier to find such rare cars, it also makes them far more accessible, as each featured vehicle only costs one ‘Backstage Pass’ rather than millions of credits.

Horizon Backstage LocationHorizon Backstage is located behind the main Horizon Festival stage.

How to access Horizon Backstage

Forza Horizon 4 Backstage can be accessed much the same as the ‘Autoshow’ in the game.

Players can either drive to the physical location found behind the main Horizon Festival Stage, or access via the ‘Autoshow’ menu.

You can also access the area via the pause menu, by selecting “Horizon Backstage” under the ‘Cars’ tab.

Horizon Backstage Car ListEach car costs 1 Backstage Pass, and is limited to one per player.

Forza Horizon 4 Backstage Passes

Each vehicle in the Backstage area is available for purchase by players. Instead of the usual method of obtaining cars via in-game credits or Forzathon points, each vehicle costs 1x Backstage Pass.

These passes are awarded to players once they reach certain milestones in Festival event playlists. Passes are not specific to particular cars, and can be used for any vehicles featured in the backstage area.

Players can also accumulate passes, as they do not have an expiry date. It is important to note, however, that each featured car is limited to only one per player.

Horizon Backstage car votingThe Forza Horizon 4 community has the opportunity to vote which cars make it to Backstage.

Horizon Backstage cars

The cars featured in Horizon Backstage are chosen via community vote. From what we can see, previous cars stick around after their initial period, and currently, players are able to access Backstage featured cars from the previous seven days.

Currently available Horizon Backstage cars:

  • 1999 Lotus Elise Series 1 Sport 190
  • 2012 Ferrari 599XX Evo
  • 1965 Hoonigan Gymkhana 10 Hoonicorn Mustang
