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
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.
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.
