There's nothing better than opening your garage door every day and finding a handcrafted buggy you built with a little help from your friends, one that's always ready for hardcore trail action. Garrett Ness from the small town of Osburn, Idaho, owns this cool rig and hits the trail whenever he can-rain, snow, sleet, or shine. The crawler was built with a little help from Garrett's friends at Twisted Customs in Box Elder, South Dakota. He based the rig's chassis design on one of the company's winning buggies, but changed some of the structure to suit his wheeling style. What he wound up with is a tough and dependable rig ready for anything, especially the 100-mile off-road races in Montana and Wyoming he has found himself running.
