Drives the L.L. Bean Bootmobile


Our connected cousins at recently had the chance to take the L.L. Bean Bootmobile for test spin around the streets of Chicago to find out what the monster sporting boot (actually an older Ford Super Duty F-250) could do.

Our test driver, Joe Wiesenfelder, found the a few surprises along his driver route but came away quite impressed (or, at least, as impressed as you could be with a 14-foot-tall custom shell. Joe even stopped by the local Ford dealership for a quick oil change. As you might imagine, the work in the dealer service area came to a grinding halt.

that truck should be the obummer re-election hdq. official truck! It's getting deep around here!

@ Sandman, AMEN!!!!! All it needs now is a GMC Sierra government badge. Make it a ghetto bling Denali!!

@Jeremy, yep. The good ol GovtMoCo boot. C-ya Obummer. Romney is taking back the country in 2012. In a Ford!

Ford, Chevy, GMC, Dodge, hell even toyota! nissan, just as long as it's NOT obummer!

They could have done such a better job with that shoe.

They could have integrated the lights and made a bumper that blends in with the shoe.

Those wheels are hideous. They should have covered up the wheels anyway.

Clearly a shoe made for the campaign of the Mexican polygamist heathen.

maxx: what in the _ell are you talking about? you need to go back to hufingtons post with your garbage

MaXx has the only good comment here. Everything else just dumps into politics. This is why we can't have nice things.

Also, giant shoe.

It reminds me of the winter felt pack boots we have for the winter. Leather upper and rubber bottom.
Is it a gasser or diesel? or a hybrid that runs on toe jam?

I had to look up the "Mexican Polygamist" comment - funny.
American politics can be so much more fun to observe than our own. LOL

It actually looks better then the Ford super duty it replaced.

GM North America President Mark Reuss said in an interview that a diesel is among the options for the next-generation Chevrolet Silverado and GMC Sierra, which are due in showrooms next spring

This actually is the new 2014 Super Dooty out testing.

Now see, I don't think that should be Obummer's GovMoCo campaign Denali truck. I think that should be Romney's Ford SD campaign truck. It symbolizes not only the Real truck manufacturer but what Romney is going to do to Obummer. Kick that guys butt back to Chicago.. Give him the Boot! There's tons of campaign slogans just Ready for that thing!

This is indeed really cute! Nice post indeed.

@Garage sale: What are you thinking? Can't you see this has been changed to a political bash post? Let's hear some more jabs or move on. Really... Seriously....

Actually, I think this shell could work for the Camo cover on all the test models. Much less boring.
