    Yea Pirate is no place a NOOB as I found out......

    I think what I might do is buy a underpowered buggy and do a motor swap.

    I was in this sport for a while here in FL but then when I went to Memphis for a few years my friends were hard core and although my Jeep was built with Ford 9" and D44 with 38" cut swampers it still couldnt hang on the extreme trails. I found someone to trade my Jeep for a custome built competition rock buggy that had oversized 1 ton running gear, hydro steering, 383 stroker motor, and 42" cut Swampers! Thing was unbreakable. I loved it!! Once I found out that I was coming back to FL I got out of the sport and went to JetSkis.
    I have more pics and video in my sig. These pics are just what I have now. The F250 7.3L Diesel was my tow rig.

    BTW - One of the guys I hung out with was Dan Dibble who was in Top Truck few years ago. If you are on Pirate4X4 you know who he is.
