Convince me to do it!
Hey yall. I've been tossing around the idea of building an off road machiene. It's a toss up between turning a VW bug into a dune buggy or my 95 S-10 into a prerunner. I figure I can do the dune buggy thing for a total of about $1200-1500. What about the prerunner thing? The S-10 is in good shape, extended cab, manual tranny, with a 4 banger. I aint lookin to race it or anything, just something to play with. I would want to lift it, put on atleast 30" BFG muds (prefer 31"), new fenders or fender flares, and prerunner bumpers. I can make the bumpers myself, that's no big deal. I already got most of what I need in the scrap pile.
So with a truck in good shape, what can I expect to spend in the build up? Anything I'm overlooking?
