lifted brat on marlin crawler board

Recommended Posts

Nice. BRATs are so danged cool. Maybe someday I'll own one.

 

 

Those tires are Interco (Super Swamper) TrXus STS. From what I've heard, they have really good street life, but not so great mud clearance (as you can see by the lack of void between lugs).

 

They're kind of a "mild" off-roader - a strong tire with way better street characteristics than other Super Swamper models.

Funny thing is, when he starts off-roading it the body is going to go crinkle! It is unavoidable. Personally, I hate to see cars like that in such nice shape, lifted. They loose their value, and i'm sure it will get dinged up eventually. Looks lilke Nice work though (on the outside) Like the jump-seat setup for sure.

To wheel without doing body body damage and/or not getting stuck means you are not trying hard enough.

2 seperate things. I frequently would push my wagon to the absolute limit, sometimes getting stuck too, without doing any body damage.

 

in fact, pretty much the only time I did any serious body damage, was either doing something stupid, or wheeling in the snow (off camber, sliding sideways into a tree).

 

 

although, I agree, I don't want to see it get bashed up. hopefully he's somewhat careful with it.
