A tank to fulfill your 'Mad Max' fantasies

Listed on Amazon for $20,000


Thanks to a certain unnamed colleague , Crave often has an inordinate number of posts involving inflatable watercraft . So we feel that apologies are in order for our landlocked readers, especially those in the desert. To show that we're equal-opportunity gadget freaks, today we offer a recreational item that won't be found floating in any backyard pool: a tank. And it's apparently available on Amazon, of all places.

The "JL421 Badonkadonk"--or just "the Donk" to its friends--is an armored land cruiser that can carry up a crew of five (internally or externallly) and reach speeds of 40 miles per hour at a list price of $20,000, according to CrunchGear. A "rust patina" steel shell makes it look like something straight out of Mad Max Beyond Thunderdome, but don't be fooled: "The interior is fully carpeted and cozy with accent lighting," according to Amazon's description, and "a 400-watt premium sound system."

No weapons are included, mind you, as the 1,300-pound Donk is not street-legal and intended only for recreational use. We suggest waiting for the next free-shipping special offer.
