Floating Jeep pontoons observations/questions

OK, I found this a while back:





I thought it was cool, but I noticed a couple of things that intrigue me.

1. Those pontoons are huge, and barely sinking into the water, why would you not use smaller pontoons? Are they running class 4 rapids in that JK?

2. Zooming in to look at how the pontoons are attached, I notice what looks like hydraulics. Really? Couldn't make it less complicated?

3. While zoomed in on the front I see two winches one mounted on top the other. How? Why? WTH?

Now back to a 2013 JKU Rubicon with "stuff", planning 37's with minimal lift.

I've tried them all... Jeeps are still the best. (0||||0)

Kind of funny they approached me via Facebook a while back on the Rancho side for potential sponsorship and I thought it was photoshop. Other than that I got nothing...
