My daughter took this pic while cruising around in the pasture at the college she goes to.

Yeah it's getting there. Bought it for $300 and have put about $900 into in. Has a bit of body rust (cancer rust). But it's coming along.

These are from 6+ months ago after I got my new mud terrains put on it.
I hope to take it out in some real dirt after I get the head gasket all finished.

I bought this 80' LUV 4x4 about a month ago and absolutely love it. I cranked the torsion bars up a little bit, and put 27" General Grabbers (r14 AT tires are a pain to find!) I've taken it up some gnarly local trails, with lots of rocks and mud. This thing just pulls in 4low!!

Nice! Yeah, r14 mud tires are even harder! Lol

I hope to finally get mine in some dirt sometime soon.

Any fit issues on the stock wheel with those tires being 8.5?. I'm looking for some more meatier tires the what's on mine right now.

My mikado is bone stock and I've been running my Maxxis Bighorn 27x8.5r14 for two years with no issues in full compression or full lock.
