    looks good and about time. looks like the concept has 4-wheel steering as well. good to see it's still around or an idea that hasn't died.

    Four wheel steering was an option for a few years. The option was available for suburbans and 1/2 ton trucks. Safety? It was the price.

    Yeah... there's nothing unsafe about it. It only engages when you are going slow. Like less than 10 mph or something. It doesn't engage when you're truckin' down the freeway.

    actually, the rear wheels follow the front when turning at speeds below 45ish, and turn with the front wheels when above 45ish.....but, totally safe....and can be turned off if you like, too.

    Thanks for the tip.
