Inyo Kern?  Serious?  Passed through many a days on the way to the worlds point of enema insertion - Trona. 

Quick story.  Working on a hopper.  Ask the guy what is this for?  "Co gen"  Look over see a co gen.  Figure sweet - I will never be in this hell hole again.  Sign here please for my eight hours travel and four hour minimum.   

Come to find out it is the second co gen.  There went a year of my life stuck in what can only be described as hell.

Too hot or too cold. Makes Blythe seem like a boom town with an upscale attitude. 

Every time I went, when I pulled out I had what I called a "Trona Hangover."  Had to take Pepto, aspirin, eye drops, and squirt some crap up my nose to clear the sinuses. All this while going through the company supplied car wash so the paint on the truck would not get eaten off.  A good day was when i did not have to randomly puke on the drive back to Ridgecrest.   Pure hell with a bad Chili joint run by a China man in the middle of nowhere.  It is where seriously ugly girls go to get laid by sober dudes with some teeth.     

For grins I looked on Google earth, the building is still there, but looks like the Chili finally caught up to the guy - for lease.  Also a picture of the hell hole plant attached. 

Back to your buggy.  Good advice above to buy a beam car and convert it.  Sounds like a tight budget.  Beam car with desert tires will let you have fun, learn some stuff and figure out what you want.  Check Craig's List. 

Welcome to the board.   Move away from where you are at.......

yea that a good idea but im just going to throw a 500crf 4 stroke motor in it would it be able to move a full size sandrail becaus mine is going to be way smaller then a sand rail i just want to know if it will move it

if you do like fabbr has done and strap it to a vw trans for the deeper gearing then yes it would work for some time otherwise low gearing would do it on a light weight beam rail but will it move like the lighter weight mini's no. just a good place to start on a tight budget to get your feet wet and figure out what you really want before you waist a bunch of money on a scrap pile!

but something else also, isn't an American at all.  We have room for but one
flag, the American flag... We have room for but one language here, and that is
the English language... and we have room for but one sole loyalty and that is a
loyalty to the American people."
