My Buggy

As most of you probably know a little over 4 years ago, Tony and I built a buggy. It has been very fun to have. With the exception of one life flight trip to the hospital 4 years ago we haven't had to many issues with it. We bought a new trailer (toyhauler) and the door is 50" wide and the buggy rear was 52". We made it one trip by taking off one of the rear wheels and pushing it in. We couldn't find any wheels with the offset we needed so we modified some. I cut out the centers on the waterjet at work, and since I was cutting on them I added some bears. I love bears! They turned out pretty good and this should make loading and unloading much easier.


If you haven't seen it before check out www.blazeofgloryoffroad.com and click on the builds link on the right side then it is the tera tamer build.


Below I put some pictures from Tony's broken arm. It was 4 years ago this month. Don't look if your stomach is weak.




He had to wear this to move his hand. Breaking his arm damaged a nerve and he couldn't open his hand or lift his wrist for 7 months.


After the surgery. Lots of hardware.



Nasty bruise.


This is where his seatbelt rubbed.


The jog in the cut is where the bone came out on its own.


You can see the gaps in the bone where pieces were missing.


The following video is on of the happiest days in our lives. :) This was 7 months after he broke his arm and it had not moved at all up to this point.
