    I've got a buggy thing in process and had been wondering about those ditch witch tires. Can they be bought fairly cheap? Are they super heavy? What rim size are they typically? Just wondering.

    well i got my ditch witch tires and groundhawgs as a set for 600 bux with 80% tread left so i have no clue on how much they are new. they are on a 16.5 rim and they are noticably heavier then the groundhawgs

    5000 watts....maybe that will neutralize the tailgate rust /forums/images/graemlins/histerical.gif

    well coming from someone who had a 3000 watt stereo in a volkswagon scirocco, you could have some issues with that tailgate rust, like blowing the thing in half, i flexed all my body panels a bit when i cranked it up, and managed to crack a security tinted windshield, but looks fun and i hope it goes well! /forums/images/graemlins/waytogo.gif
