And guess what, no one has added in the cost of wheels and tires.
I would say you are right...however thats why I put into $4000 into bullshit...my point is that buying a rig for around 3ok is a good deal...65K not so much...for you to build a buggy I would say it would be around 10K if you plan on using your own stuff, and building it yourself
