Baja Bug years

Recommended Posts

Has anyone built a newer VW into a dune toy or long travel? ‘97-‘10 model years... I just see the older air cooled cars modified...

Most people used the older models to get a plate, so you can drive it on the highway with no smog. I have seen 3 newer "beetle" out there. 1 was a Crumco other 2 are A Armed with LS

Here's a thread of a build from 2010

 

This one was up for sale on RD not too long ago

problem with the new ones is there are no "bolt on" parts available to make them into baja's. you pretty much build a tube chassis and mount the new style body on it.

New beetles are cool, I have seen some companies make an LS swap for them even. These are a few of my favorites
