Yeah, but then you're stuck with the circa mid-1980's "Four Wheeler magazine cover rig" paint job...

Regardless of how much money we have in them, dedicated wheeling rigs almost *never* bring good prices, because, let's face it, most people who want/need a dedicated trail rig want to do it themselves. I have a vision of where I want my project to go, and I don't think I could ever find a rig out there to satisfy all my parameters...

Just my $0.02...

it looks pretty sweet but there are a few poo poo things about it ,i wont go into what i see done wrong but it is worth the money ..
all i will say is that you will be spending a lot more on it to right the wrongs ..

noleen it would not be fair of me to rip on it .. it has a very nice drivetrain i would ax the the big block that's just my opinion
but it has nice axles very nice tranny klune t/case driveshafts , tires are on the big side to be any good for real rock crawling competition most sanctioning bodies allow 40" max not all ....
that's all i can say

That's what the ARCA rulebook states, but I
don't see how the Sniper gets away with 44's
& the two Cruisers (Don Robbins & Tracy
Jordan) are running 42" Swampers. I've got
some ARCA videos & these trucks seem to turn over more. I think it has to do with the
bounciness of the tires when they're low on
pressure. Well, that's my observation anyhow <IMG SRC="smilies/biggrin.gif" border="0">

the sniper used to run 44"...
yes jordan and robins run 42's but they really measure out at 40's arca goes by the actual tire measerment not the stated size .
my 42's measure out at 40" ....
