This buggy was completed in February 2012 as a turn key build by Jim's Garage. I spared nothing on parts when it was built and it is absolutely amazing. It climbs well, rides great and is incredibly comfortable. Every part was new except the transmission, Atlas, brake booster and knuckles. Those parts were all put on my Jeep new and ridden about 5 times.

There is a ton of details I am missing and honestly I would be here for days spelling out every detail. The attention to detail in parts and craftsmanship is amazing. I hate to even type this and I will regret selling it.
The buggy is currently at Wide Open Design and I was planning on freshening it up after the year. We were going to put new skins on it, replace all the heims with QA1 chromoly heims and a new rear seat cover that was torn by a tree limb. This plan is still on and will continue as scheduled.
As it sits - $63,000.00
Freshened up - $65,000
**** I'm dumb for this.
