Adrian's Tomcat 100"

Suzuki Based Buggy

In the same way as you can make your own buggy based on a Landrover product, you can build a mud plugger using the chassis from a different off road vehicle like a Suzuki. Building your own 4x4 buggy should give you better off-road performance than the donor vehicle and no expensive, venerable body panels to damage. It may even be safer if it has a roll cage etc. This Suzuki based buggy did have a number of Land Rover parts including lights, wing mirrors and mud flaps. The buggy may be road legal, but it did arrive on a trailer.

The buggy performed well on the dry ground and in the mud pits, but this was also down to the skill of the drivers.

Monster Suzuki Based Buggy

This is a fairly heavily modified monster Suzuki with most of the original parts changed. Like the Tomcat, it has a space frame integral roll cage. It is also painted a good colour as yellow ones go quicker. It did perform will off road in the mud.
