    Yep, the batteries can blow up. Guys in the 4WD club i ran with in WV had two vehicles with welders driven off the engine.

    I imagine it could be potentially quite hazardous. I guess you'd have to weigh the risk & benefit. I would more than likely do it if it beats kicking rocks.

    Found this, may be a good example of why to be extremely careful. I think that battery was rigged, though. One should already be safely shielded prior to welding, but we have Darwin Awards for a reason.

    Offroaders do that sort of welding regularly if they don't have an onboard welder.
