well despite all the nay sayers i am going to do it. trading my buggy and trailer straight across for this jeepster commando. here's what i am thinking

opens up more trailer for rick, my dad, my mechanic, and me to ride on being street legal.

if i dont like it i can sell it for more then i would be able to my buggy.

More time with my dad because we can ride everywhere we go together.

can still follow la familia on almost every ride. Minus little rubicon(unless i get it really beafed up) and the maze in mecca

I think you'll enjoy it, the 225 is a great power to weight ratio and great milage engine. To have a good off road rig and one that will do well on the highway I would swap in a Spicer 18 with the Warn overdrive in place of the stock spicer 20 transfer. Does it have a TH400? If so, the downside is you cannot lock it for steep decent, be careful to not let it get away from you! IMO you'll want a little more power and some more gearing and tires. Keep the TH400, swap in a spicer 18, engine swap to a 4.3L V6, 4.10 gears and 35" tires

You won't miss the farm wagon :cool:
