most of these buggies are all show and no go I've hunted with some of the most expensive nicest looking buggies out there and none of them will hold up to a hard day of hunting with me. remember looks aren't always everything look for quallity and durribility. I run five ton running gear 28L-26 skidder tires and 454 vortec. stock motor. home built. all day hunting and crushing.

My buggy is preatty bad and looks bad and is all airbrushed and we hunt the hell out of it. If you build it right and know what your doing you can build along lasting buggy that looks bad ass. This is a hunt buggy also not a mud hole buggy and it is show class. A hunt buggy is very different from a mud hole buggy.

that was what i was trying to say but my buggy looked good to start w/ but it's hard to keep it looking nice if you hunt it hard. and alot of peoples ideas of hunting hard is a little differnt than mine. wasn't trying to insult anyone just saying that looks don't always put it one the dinner table. most people in okeechobee and west palm know me and i will put buggies where most people won't. broke many 5 ton axles. but never at a mud hole. if your runnin 2.5 ton toploader your not gonna hang with me in woods. unless ur running the after market axels. even then your gonna be alittle lite. for the pines and cypress. to many have tried and failed.

Yah I hunt at Rainey Slough Hunt Club where it is palmetto woods and big sloughs. We do take good care of are buggy because it is to nice to let sit and rot. If I could figure out how to put pics on my computer I would post some pics of my buggy hunting and with deer on it. Everyone builds a different buggy for different things. The reason I reacted like that not meaning to sound rood was because of all the crap you catch from people trying to say just because something looks nice it has to be just show. I am sorry if I sounded rood.

yea i hear you there i am still trying to figure out how to post pics. my self. I would like to post a picture of mine also but can't quite figure it out. I just hunt corbitt and some other public property where alot of people go and if your gonna do any good ya got to be willing to scratch the paint. I wasn't say you didn't but we've all seen some show buggies that never hit the woods. my buggy isn't an old plywood buggy it's a nice buggy but it is a hunting buggy hell i think i'm the last person still running hoop towers. but they are real nice when that buck runs out the back. :lol:

The problem I'm having is I just got this computer and it has no pics on it. The computer that had the pics the hard drive went bad so I am having to scan actual paper pics to put them on the computer and I'm lost! I'll get in a few.
