Wanting ideas for..... Well another rig design.

Hey guys, I have not wheeled my rig a lot but I really would like to keep my roc's but maybe a different body ? I was wondering what your ideas were for another rig. I don't have the money for a fawker fab buggy, but I have the support from him and several other friends. So what say you ? Rockwell yota ? Or ?? This wont happen tomorrow but I wanted to get some ideas and start planning. Or maybe modify mine to be what I'm after ?? Thanks guys.

Go past the local junk yard see if they would donate a body? Then just look see what flips your trigger?? Buddy of mine has a s10 sdr blazer on 49's and it looks great! I got an FJ40 body.

Gooch had an S-10 on rocks, but I havent seen him on the board lately.

Here are some pics from google.
I'm not a fan of the 53's....


Or a newer body style..

Depends if you want to be like a lesbian with a strap on or a ghey little girl??


I've considering dumping mine to build a 5 seater since my youngest will be good to wheel in about a year. I've considered a GM 03+ crew cab or a '00+ double cab Tacoma. Are you lookin for more space? Looks? Something different?

Those 4 door tacoma would be sweet on tons or rocks.



Personally i would just pull everything off your rig down to the frame and just tube it out from there. Tube is cheap and i know Nathan has a bender. Plus you could probably figure out a way to drop the height of it a couple feet.

I'm curious why a new rig so quickly? It appears there is nothing wrong with your current rig, why not wheel the dog$h!t out of it?

Are you wanting it to look better or wheel better? If you want it to wheel better then I would say just save your pennies and convert to buggy later. I do like the idea of cutting off all the body and replacing it with toob. That would be the cheapest easiest way for now.

I like a full body for the heat and a/c as well as keeping the rain off of me.

Buy a bender and a bunch of tube and start bending.

I agree with what Mitch said about staying out of the elements. I saw this rig on pirate a few years ago and always liked it.






Or you could get a 1st or 2nd gen 4runner. I love those. Here's mine..
