This rig is the most fun I have had with the least amount invested.. =D> =D> =D> =D> =D> =D> =D>

I only paid $1500 for the original baja.... and it could have been rocked just like it was.... [-X [-X [-X [-X [-X [-X [-X [-X

Bought some wheels and tires, reused most everything else, all stock suspension etc.... Took it apart in 10/14 and was driving it again 3-15... about 5 1/2 months.... =D> =D> =D> =D> =D> =D> =D> and now.. I got this sweet ride!!! That will go damn near anywhere!!!!!

Glad you have kept at least a few of the Awesome rigs that have passed through your fingers over the years! Smile I count this rig, the Dually (I'll regret saying that) and your Camper as tops on the Jones "Keeper List" =D> =D> =D> =D> =D> It's getting harder and harder to decide though there's quite a few more you have under thumb that I wouldn't mind having as well Smile

I'm getting an itch for something like this. Baja, or rail. Body won't let me do the dirt bikes anymore. Back in the day, my dad and I made a pan buggy. Loads of fun and you could go anywhere.
Let me draw you a fucking picture!

I am thinking about putting together a set of desert wheels and tires for my rail, get to use it more often than just when I go to the sand. Keep the pictures coming.
