yeah Matt, it would be totally awesome on some dunes...But it doubles as a prrrretty good wheeling rig also. With 3 inches of lift and plenty of clearance w/ the 31's on, it fairly nimble off road. Plus I'm always right there w/ the jeep if it does get stuck. Beetles make for a durn good off roading car that has no 4x4...

I have owned several baja bugs and rail buggies. I drove one all through high school. Cheap and fun... If you get one be sure to get this book. HOW TO KEEP YOUR VOLKSWAGON ALIVE,Instructions for the complete idiot by John Muir. It is the best "how to" manual I have ever read. It got me through my first engine rebuild when I was 16 years old.

That book is an absolute necessity, and was the only thing that kept my Squareback on the road for as long as it was.

It made me feel like the guy was standing over my shoulder waiting for me to make a mistake then he would correct it You could tell the book was written by a man with first hand experiance.
