I thought dune buggies had really big soft suspension??

And that would be suicide for anyone riding in the back

If your hunting gophers, squirrels, prairie dogs, or other small varmits.....

If someone were to swap in a larger engine they could probably throw a deer in the back too if they were hunting. That engine will barely pull the people in it! lol
