I'm disappointed thinking it's more likely then not that your going to end up having to abandon the car. I don't care much about you or the car, I care about where you'll be abandoning it and how that makes the rest of us who appreciate the outdoors and what's left of the open trails look.Lol the plan is to go hard, atv trails, off camber, rutted and washed out trails, water crossing, rock crawling etc, I will use speed and momentum for the more difficult spots!! And get dragged out when I'm stuck ********, the more I think about it the more excited I get, I'm laughing my *** off thinking about how much fun I'm gonna have.
Want to explore some forest roads, sure, I've done that in a car, have fun. But be safe, my father hit some kid speeding around on those roads head on once, wasn't pretty. My dad was fine, barely bent the bumper, the other guy went down an embankment with his engine was in his lap. But want to go all gung ho crazy trying to right foot your way through something you have no business on, please don't. We spend weekends out in these trails pulling out all the trash and abandoned cars to keep them open. You coming here laughing about smashing everything up until you get into a spot that you can't recover from is, well I'll stop, PG forum.
On the flip side I've had this nutty idea for a while I think is completely doable but I'll never have time to do it. Buy an old v8 explorer pop off the body and put a mustang body on it. Frame issues of course, would take some work, but I took a close look once, wouldn't be too bad. I was thinking more like 67 Mustang though, likely do it using repopped body parts vs. an original and just build it around the frame and a cage.
