The tarmac tires will be out soon. You will trash the stock tires in no time at all. Other then that, A good set of tools and...... How much money you got?

Outerwears for the air filter and starter cover. Extra shock shafts, extra tires, X-can, etc. Depends what you are going to do with it.

you only need 30 to 50 inches of 25* jump surface to make 4 to 5 ft height and 15 to 20+ feet distance speed dependant...!!!! gotta small ditch? or a piece of 3/4 in plywood 3 or 4 feet long and about the same wide? Fix it to a couple 5 gallon buckets filled with heavy rocks and set it 15 or so feet from some sand or other softer landing surface. let off the gas just befor you get to the ramp. and when the buggy is fully on the face of the ramp WOT IT. the let off when its airborn and ENJOY!!!!!!!!!
