I hear tell that Mud Buddy will sell you just a frame...

You might check with the other MM mfgs too or look for a deal
on a MM with a blown engine from some of the repair sponsors
listed here...

Or there are a few DIY kits to buy with some assembly and welding required...

This is the only one I have seen. If MM has one to buy it might be a more proven choice. It might also cost more.

PM member Ronbow. He has a complete MB frame with merc trim for just a shade over 2K. Bolt your motor on and go.
