yes all of this is right my buddy just traded him out of the claws for the boggers. And I think this rig will roll the coal is what I was told. He don't live but a few miles of me but I've never seen it in person but he is supposed to make a trip to windrock with us this weekend so I'll get to see what it made of I guess if he doesn't back out . :dunno:

one of my all time favorite truggies. The Cummins makes it for me. The boggers look tiny compared to the claws that were on it

A friend built a Jeep from an late 1st gen. Even with the turned up 12v, the buggy dies better now with a gas engine. All he did was swap the 12V, nv4500, 205 for a 5.3, th350, 205. It breaks alot less front end parts now too, but it was cool to see the black trail through the trail.

To keep on topic:
This is a nice rig that looks to be a good price, but would look better with 47 ltbs.

yea that's why I wanna build a 24v lol 12 valves require a lot more mechanical mods where you can mod a 24v depending on year with tuners. the cp3 injection pump can handle just about all the pressure you want with out coming apart. i understand the weight thing tho just depends how you ride i reckon

Rode with this thing yesterday it would be a badass crawler/trail rig but that's it. They said it weighed over 8k and I don't mean to sound negative but the little guy that owns it don't have no balls to drive it to it full ability.
