Worth every penny! Little engine work, elbow grease and paint, it'll be good as new, I see a lot of potential right there...

and that is the very reason the front differental..side drive shaft..and maybe even the rear differental is toasted right now ..because of these gawd awful tires !!!!!!..this ppl...is what i have been trying to explain to everyone about what happends when you go too big of a tire on your atv !.
