    Pics of what you drive around in while in the gold fields.

    Just out of pure curiosity, what do you drive around in when out in the desert or mountains looking for gold. I know most are probably using an atv but I'm curious about the 4wd pickups, crossovers and the like.

    I usually bury myself in the desert between 25 and 60 miles off the blacktop using my Tacoma 4x4, then make base camp and from there I use a honda ct110 to get to out of the way areas to detect.

    I bet you got some good fuel mileage out of those. You said the engine is ready for a tune up?

    We don't have any gold fields here in the Ozark Mountains but after roughly 1,500 hours labor over nearly two years I built this one of a kind street legal rock crawler I call The Mistress. It has a High Pinion Dana 60 front axle from a 79 Ford and a 14 bolt full float rear axle, custom cross over stearing, suspension, 4 wheel disk brakes, 37" tires, and on and on and on. The best part is being able to say I built it myself.
