Yup, you can actually hit the trails in a street-legal vehicle for just a tick over $2K. And that includes the purchase price of the vehicle! Sound too good to be true? Well, we didn't say you'd be winning any show 'n' shine awards. In fact, chances are you'll need to stash your valuables to keep them from falling through the floorboards and onto the dirt.
However, you can buy a vehicle and 'wheel on a Beefaroni budget. The end result probably won't be very comfortable, handle very well, go more than 30 feet without breaking, or even smell very good, but it should get the job done.
