Default Should I loot this?

Hey all. I recently was talking with a few friends and decided on what vehicles I should loot as an ork. I came up with the following:

A monolith. Why? I don't know really, but I would add some (8+) wheels.
A raider (dark eldar). Why? Since their is a dark eldar player around here, I felt like "improving" a few of them since looted are one armor value better than the normal ones!

There were a few others, but those were the most interesting. Now, I ask: Has anyone looted any of the above before? If so, your experience?

I think its best to loot vehicles from the armies you usually play against. I, on the other hand, am looting the vehicles I can buy the cheapest and still keep the overall theme of my army. So far I have a devilfish I'm going to loot into a wagon, and a pair of land raider tracks that will be the basis for a battlewagon. I wanted to do a monolith battlewagon, but never found one cheap enough to justify it. I always thought the Dark Eldar stuff would look cool; almost like Jabba the Hutt's skiffs.

I saw a looted monolith on Cool Mini Or Not that wasn't particularly impressive. Then again, i'm trying to loot a hammerhead and i know it's not going to turn out any better. If you're good at converting/painting, i say give it a go and reap the internet fame afterwards.

OK, I'm putting my 'Im a Necron Player' rant in a spoiler for those who do not wish to see it.
[spoiler]OK, first off, a looted Monolith is fluffically impossible. not only is it damn near impossible to kill anyway, the rst of the Necrons would either evaporate the Orks or be completely destroyed. either way, they will just phase out, even the damaged/disintigrated/atomised Monolith. so no matter what, its impossible. even if you tried to loot one within a battle, as it has no way in, no driver and nothing to look out of to see where you're going, not to mention technology far beyond the undrstanding of even the most brilliant Mek.
Then there's the fact that it'll look completely stupid. Monoliths get away with their size by being tall and dominating. stick wheels on it, and it becomes just a comical office block.[/spoiler]

On a seperate note, how big is a pirhana (length&wingspan) or a DE raider?

Surley Orkz would just stick some spikes into Monoliths and then lob it at the enemy as it would cause a lot of damage :P

IMO, a Land Speeder would be a cool thing to loot but no matter what you loot you need to keep to three rules:
It's Orky
It's Creative
It's not OTT

If you follow these rules then you'll end up with a cool model

thinking about it, anything looted ideally needs wheels.
Does anyone no where you can get spare wheels, as GW doesn't seem to do them?
