I see Marns point of view on this. With the amount of time and money he has roll into the Waggy, i would not want to ruin it on a trail. For the age Marns Waggy is beautiful, just way too nice to **** up.

Mine on the other hand im into it for $3300 and wheel the piss outta it.

I can see where Khris is coming from though. I am into mine a lot more than you are into yours. Would you take yours through where I have taken mine?

If you say yes, I want to be there! My money is on, you won't do it.

The price of the vehicle doesn't really matter so long as you have the bankroll to fund it. What matters is what the vehicle was built for.

The window sticker on mine was $38,450 and I take it on the trail all the time. I am not going to say that I beat on it, because I don't. Yes it does have some desert pin stripes and the skid plates have been used, but I don't beat on it. I am not going to leave it on pavement because it was expensive. As many of you know, I don't really have much to prove and for the most part I will always take the bypasses if I think that I will get some body damage. About 90% of the time I have my kids with me, so I normally slow down and run the back of the line when they pass out.

To that fact one of the times that I did Burro Wash I got passed by a guy in a brand new Land Rover. He was hauling but through softball sized rocks. Once we made it down to the wash, his rig had so many pin stripes that it was not funny. I bs'd with the guy and his family for a little bit and he said that he did not buy it for the mall, he bought it to get out to BFE and spend time with his family.

If you ask the dude that's running around henderson what his wagon was built for I think he'll argue against that though Marn, I'm sure you've seen the other tan one with no top sitting on like 37's it looks like with the pretty basic cage work and some trail body work...

I'm just saying, why does the cost of the vehicle have anything to do with how you would use it? I argue what the vehicle is built for should have pretty much everything to do with how you use it... My whole point is in reply to

I'm saying that I cannot fathom spending 15k on a vehicle that I would wheel all hard
Why wouldn't you? Whether it's a $1.5K, $15k, or $150k, if it's built to wheel why not use it to do it?

You're telling me if you spent $35K in parts plus the labor to build the toyota in my driveway you wouldn't want to go see what it could do? See how it stacks up against others? But rather would cruise it around the town to get groceries and maybe run down some washes to the river in it? If so, you're doing it wrong and you should've bought a $35K land rover cause it would do all the same stuff but you'd be a heck of a lot more comfy! LOL

(LOL, edit!!! Maybe land rover was a bad example now based on gregs post while I was posting... LOL)




And I have no clue Andy, I just pulled it off that civic ad.

Correct at this point Andy. My XJ is no where neer as capable as your Rubicon, i can only wait untill i have the cash needed to buy the parts i need to go where you have been. But in the end nope, wont go where you have been.... But i will...

That either:
a.) makes you a yuppie

b.) means that you should sell it so that it can become a work truck (Messicans don't care what it was originally built for so long as they can put a ladder on it)

c.) means you shouldn't go camping

d.) means you see the advantage of using it for more than what it was orginally intended.

The $40K truck sitting in Khris' garage was originally built to haul a load (or be used as the aforementioned work truck) and is now a purpose built race truck.

Maybe he just buys parts for the stickers that come in the boxes? Then they go on the window right next to the Jeg's and Summit Racing stickers.

For all of my cars I pretty much only do stuff for a purpose. If I chip or boost something I am going to use that extra power. If I lift something or put a skid plate on... it is for a reason.

I wouldn't suggest it without a solidly built cage. I had poo coming out.

When you do it, I either want to be there or I want video proof.

Why do you want a winch again?

And I have no clue Andy, I just pulled it off that civic ad.
'
if i spent the money to build that truck, i would use it, but i'm saying i wouldnt spend the money to build the truck.

I'm not even arguing, or saying its 'crazy' or that peoiple should or shouldnt do it, i'm saying i, Andrew Morris, personally, would not. I just couldnt, i dunno.

But then again, it's like when people say they'd never buy whatever, even if they were rich, and then they do if they become rich. Who knows, maybe if like andy said i had the bank roll to pay for it, i would. But I'm a poor boy and I dont. if i flopped my jeep and it was totaled, i'd not have a vehicle, nor enough money to buy a vehicle (well, i could buy like a $1500 vehicle, wheres the link to that civic? haha).

I beat on my TJ, well, not beat, but i pushed it.

there's obviously a difference between use and abuse, most of us use our stuff and take care of it, not just romp it and beat on it.
