    As for the dimensions, the boxes are 20ft ISO Containers - so this module would be about 85 meters x 15 meters ...

    So next step - added another living compartment, reworked the fuel module, now using a container module with fuel containers

    Current vehicle dimension ~140m (460ft) x 15m (50ft)

    You should come visit Churchill manitoba Canada, we have something like these. Inflatable tires can shatter when it gets too cold and the weight forces them to have any kind of a flat bottom which causes an edge while driving. My brother in law guards ice roads to diamond mines and has many great ice road disaster stories.
