Who says you can't make a rav4 into a rock crawler? Don't tell this guy that!

I am sure he has a few bucks tied up in it.. Oh and it has a v8 in it too.

Body Damage is Cool
What do you meen it has a V8, All I see is a big hole where the engine goes <img src="/forums/images/graemlins/lol.gif" alt="" /> <img src="/forums/images/graemlins/lol.gif" alt="" /> <img src="/forums/images/graemlins/lol.gif" alt="" />. With some welding skills you can turn just about anything into a rock crawler. That will be cool to see when it's finished.

Maybe I should sell the Sportage and the MG and buy a Mini?

Or maybe steal my Brother-in-laws Dumb car (Smart) and do some mods!

I only took 1 picture from the forum, it was on 4x4 pirate.

I was just bored so I was looking up dumb things. But it does have a v8 in it.

but seriously, its no longer a rav4. not sure why you'd spend SO much money just to make something do what it was never intended to do, but hey, its america! its too hard to keep up with the jones's.

even on the sportages, why put $35,000 into one? because you can???? I will never understand it.

what we have done to ours, is cool, its cheap to do. but to spend $35,000 on one is beyond my reasoning!!

You can bolt almost anything onto a C10 chassis!
A guy here locally has a 88 RX7 bolted on one!
