It's usually not worth it.

Depending on what car it is, you'll usually need arms, turnbuckles, driveshafts, shocks, and shocktowers, among a few other things.

agreed, you probably would be better served to buy both.

You could however pickup the axles for the truck and mount the truck wheels on the buggy ( if an AE vehicle, AE on there forum has a description on what is needed for the B4 ) .

You would have a short arm , short length "truggy" then which you could also attempt to mount a truck body on. Could be fun to just fun around with but for racing you would be better to buy another vehicle.

Um, I really want to make my basher buggy have a bit more jump-ability, could i just whack on some suitable rims and tires from a truck and go for it? or will i need to change gearing etc. etc.
