Does anyone know anything about the pros and cons? I can pick up 3 w/ 1 running for 500. Looks like they would make a decent little off-road wheeler truck. Any info would be appreciated.

How do the axles compare to the Samurai's, strength and weight wise?

All I know for sure, is it looked like a little car (front half) with a pickup bed. It had a roll bar behind the cab. Kind of reminded me of a scaled down El Camino or Ranchero with the light bar/roll bar in the bed. The guy had a bunch of beatles (8 or 9) and a great looking '71 (?) Karmen Gia that he drives. I don't really care who makes them. I am just curious about yay or


bigok nay.

they are good little 4x4s.my first 4wheeler was a brat,it took to the gap(tucson area trail) for the first time and lots of other places.
i was told the only thing i could do was a couple sizes taller tires and that would cause the front cv joints to go out more often.they estimated a couple times a year they would have to be replaced.
i would say get them and injoy them as a daily/light wheeler.
