The Dakar Rally is one of, if not the most hardcore off-road event in the entire world. This two week event showcases some of the baddest machines and competitors against some of the toughest terrain imaginable. If you’re familiar with Dakar then you no doubt know that the service trucks that run the event are the coolest entrants out there. Sure the buggies, bikes and cars are neat, but a 3-ton truck jumping over sand dunes simply takes the cake for me. J.F. Musial, Executive Producer of /DRIVE recently got up close and personal with Dakar RallyTeam X-raid and the uber trucks that support them. Check it out after the jump.
