Default lil burb the trail beater

picked up a cr01 in trade.
i asked a few dumb questions the day i got it, but got it all ironed out.
i removed all the cantilever style suspension and now have it setup droop with aluminum body maxx shocks.
the body was rough when i got it, so i let my drunk buddy borrow my truck tonight....

well, this is how it showed up on my lawn.....









i got better plans with it, for now its just got a axial stock 27T motor...
cause someone here told me chrome makes it go faster :thumbsup:
thanks for looking.

I heard chicks dig
body damage.
At least that's what
a 1/1 wheelin' friend has painted
on one of the mangled fenders
of his FJ60. :-)
For sure the Burb
looks cool with trail
carnage.

thanks. the damage didn't come out as " nice " as others around have done. i actually went back and added a bit more silver to the brown side swipes on the doors to give it a bit more directional damage.
i have also taken 60 grit paper and given it some desert pinstripes.
now it looks like the tight trail beater.
she needs new sneakers, but what she don't get in traction she makes up in a whole lot of skinny pedal. (it's got a chrome axial motor now, watch out.)
i drove it like a meathead too.
here's one a buddy from up north said to me once about his old jeep.
" ... if she dont make it ...
i make her make it. "
