    Riggy Bam Bam. Xd — Pulls like a train, handling is light and easy, looks like a truck should, practical and simple interior made for work, fun to play with in the mud, needed lots of repairing- through no fault of its own- engine transplant was not thoroughly thought through or completed by previous owner, thus making a complete mess of everything.

    Primary Use: Sport/fun (spirited driving, track racing, off-roading, etc.)

    Pros: Big, Powerful, Practical work and play truck, turns heads, sounds great.

    Cons: A little thirsty, a bit clattery, and its size can sometimes be a pain.
