Ol trunt's toad

By request from Sleddgracer:

Just a few pics of the MM build. I chose it because of its similar to the bus body lines. I built a tube frame for the MM and bolted it to the Geo Tracker 4x4 chassis. It makes a great little toad. I also fixed up an old motorcycle tent trailer to use with the toad to visit places the Skoolie won't go.
