Made a kick ass way to carry my tools and spare parts.

My tool bag was really hard to get strapped down correctly because it spreads out and has no defined shape. When I strapped the tool bag down, the straps took up too much space and the whole affair looked like shit.

Sooo, I pulled out a couple of old ammo cans. Fit all of my tools in one, spare parts in the other, and painted them to match the buggy. I added some hooks to the bottom of the storage bin, fabbed up a keeper bar with a rubber pad on the bottom, and installed a couple of heavy-duty turnbuckles. Whalllaaa....secure tools and parts that are easy to get to, and doesn't look like shit.

Wow. Great reply bud! That's a lot in the ammo can!!!! Awesome!

I know it's a buggy and you just need to get back to the tow rig when SHTF.

That awesome reply gets you a free lap dance from Trevor. I'm buying!

Been a Long time since I added to this post, so here goes....

As buggies have grown more badass the last few years, and trails are getting more and more extreme, I finally gave in and went to sticky tires. 42" Maxxis Trep competition compound.

Then, my tired old 383 stroker wasn't holding good oil pressure and was a little down on power to turn the new 42" stickies. SOOOO a new 383 Stroker, all forged/roller, and powered by Holley EFI was installed. MAN what a HUGE difference!
