dream rig setup? This topic got thrown around on one of the other boards I frequent when we got to talking about our dream Track Car...some really cool ideas got thrown around and it livened up the board some

Setting a budget of 100k, what would you do in the grand scheme of things starting from almost scratch.

Tow Rig: 2003-2005 5.9 HO 6SPD CTD 3500 - $20k
Trailer: 30ft Featherlite Enclosed Gooseneck - $20k
Home Shop: Mig, Tig, Bender, Notcher, Drill Press, Compressor, Press Brake, Air Tools, Lift - $10k (Shopping for used equiptment and assuming you already have a building to house this stuff)
Buggy: Two seater custom chassis, LS1, built auto trans, STAK, Rockwells, 47" LTB's and a ballin marine/Wakeboard sound system...no comp stuff here...I would rather ride with my buddies and have a seat so I can scare the crap out of a noobie or have a seat in case someone breaks. I would budget the remaining $50k here

I'm trying to think what my dream setup would be, but I've changed my mind 27 times in the past 45 seconds Very Happy I'll eventually settle on one idea and post up.

My ideal setup is WAY under the 100k budget.

What I currently have is really all I will ever need.
It is dependable, does all the crazy stuff, and I can still ride her ass into town and get a lot of jealous looks.


















My ideal rig: Jason's Mom! Shock

I'm not going to get into the perfect tow rig and trailer deal, my mind changes on that WAY too much.

If we are just talking about wheeling rigs, i feel like i have it narrowed down to two different ideas.

#1
I like the idea of 1st gen skinned buggy. All tube, but with fenders and bedsides hung on to keep it Toyota looking. Linked, coilovers, 100% percent fully built toyota 8" front and rear and maybe 38s. Either a supercharged 2.7 taco engine or a supercharged 3.4, either way have to keep it all toyota, and keep it LIGHT. The only problem i see is the axles holding up to twice or three times what a 22r puts out.


#2
FJ40 hooded buggy, rockwells, 47 LTBs, LS7 from a C6 Z06, auto, loud, mean, expensive, and fast.


Either way, I like the idea of having enough up travel and axle trussing to be able to take some jumps. Seems like it would be fun to be able to launch it without worry every now and then. Very Happy

While all of the stuff i listed would be fun, i really can't complain about my current setup.

My Dodge will break the speed limit up every hill on the east coast pulling my rig. I wish it was a 6 speed, but if you keep it stock, the auto will last long enough, and i really have no complaints with the way it acts.

My trailer is light, but handles my truck perfectly and is really useful to me in other ways. I hook to it probably twice a week to move something around and other than some heavier duty tires, i like everything about it.

The Toyota is relatively cheap, goes good, holds up really good, and thats about all you can ask for. Its not pretty, and its not bling, but it works.

Its always fun to see trucks like that showing people up though...it really is tough to complain about a setup like that. Add some pane and a little more tube and you will be set as long as that frame continues to hold up.

I would love to have my ideal setup but I know I will end up in a mini-truck I can flog the hell out of.

Thats a nice setup for sure, all the mall crawling good looks of a jeep, all toyota drivetrain, super clean paint job, and some pretty sweet fog lights on the bumper. The only problem i see with it is a very small passenger compartment, either that or the dude driving is very large man. Either way, the driver's striking good looks have me captivated Cool

I'll play.

Tow rig: 4x4 Ambulance that can tow well and recover the trail rig if need be. It would also be a nice place to stay for the weekend.

Trail rig: Single seat rear engine comp buggy. (I change my mind on this a lot. Ideally I'd have more than one trail rig.)

Trailer: Just a 12' open trailer like mine.

Sometimes I think a 14' box truck would be a nice tow rig too. It would also work for securely storing the buggy when I'm not using it. However, I'm not interested in sleeping where I keep my trail rig. I've never had it *completely* leak-free so I just can' get on board with sleeping in an enclosed buggy space.

my dream set up right now would be a trailer to haul my runner on, anything to pull it with and a suit case full of cash for gas money.

And if the dream ferry wants to throw in some longfeilds then that would rock. Then i would no longer be a web crawler Laughing Laughing Laughing

My dream rig is my rig, with diffrent engine and tranny and tires and front driveshaft and better speakers and A newer REDBULL sticker. Also diffrent sliders and rear bumper, but I would keep my dana44 in the front just cause some people hate it. LOL! Almost forgot A new cd case so my cd's will stop getting scratched up in the dash. Very Happy To make it complete, someone riding behind me in one of the rigs some of you guys listed, loaded down with parts and tools to fix my truck when I break it. That in it's self is priceless. Laughing
