This Isn’t Your Ordinary Ram 3500! Tornado Intercept Vehicle (TIV) Is Ready To Hit The Road Again!​

Restored & Ready, Updated TIV 2 Has Two Sponsors For This Season...​


Its the beginning of tornado season, that time of year where the transition from cooler temperatures to warmer weather creates the optimal unstable air conditions for tornadic activity throughout multiple areas of the United States and Canada. Areas like the Southern Plains (Kansas, Oklahoma, and Texas) see more tornadoes from May to early June. On the Gulf Coast, tornadoes are more common during early spring. While the Northern States and areas of the upper Midwest (Iowa, Minnesota, Nebraska, North Dakota, and South Dakota) have peak tornado season in June or July.

For storm chasers, this is the busiest part of the year as they prep for the harsh weather conditions in the pipeline. These chasers require tough vehicles that can tackle harsh backroads, high winds, tons of non-stop mileage, and that can handle tons of different weather measuring and photo equipment. Each vehicle is usually outfitted to the chaser’s needs. But for one IMAX filmmaker, a normal vehicle wouldn’t cut it.
