Hey gang,

I recently picked up a 1989 Dodge Raider (built by Mitsubishi) for $900.
3.0 V6, 5 speed.
A little worn out and rusty, but I wanted a low budget wheeler.
So far:
5 used rims & 34" Mickey's - $400
2 new CV axle shafts - $160
Rotors & pads - $135
Drums & shoes - $65
Valve cover gaskets - $20
Lock-outs - $120
Idler arm - $30
Safari roof rack - $125
CB radio - $35

So far I have under $1600 into this rig. Taking it to the Badlands May 15th & 16th. Can't wait to see how it performs (or not!)

Yea, they were cool. Tells you what angle you are so you know when to crap your pants.

They seem to be tough to get running smooth but are cool little rigs. One of my X students has one up here in Da Soo.
