trail scout

I recently got hooked to trail wheeling and am looking to build my own rig. I always go out with guys with cherokees or cjs and im the type who dont like to run what everyone else has. How would you compare the scouts to these types of jeeps? And what would to the best model for narrow trails the jeeps i ride in are stock running gear and some of the trails are almost to tight for them. Any feed back will be helpful.

1. Scouts are better than Jeeps.

2. Search NEWB.

3. Go play in traffic.

Yea try Binder Planet.

Think about this though. If you are just now getting into crawling, don't you think you'll want the crew you ride with to have simliar set ups as you so that you can share spare parts? I love Scouts, but a Jeep isn't a bad thing. It's about wheeling, not brand loyalty IMO.

Just put some Ninja bars on what ever you build, as it sounds like you have a lot of trees. This way you can just rub and not worry. I'm full width and the trails here are wide enough.
