I wanted to know some of your guys thoughts on golf cart, mules and rigging pickup trucks.

I was planing on getting a quad cab pickup up having some speedrail caged around it. then having it so i could put a seated rig off the back, either side and the front.

but i'm not sure if i would just be better off going with a mule or a golf cart and rigging them with speed rail. beefing up the altinator adding a marine battery. i know the mule will be faster and able to run longer and carry more weight. but is the electric motor going to get on more sets since you may be able to actually run on shots with sound? i'm in ny.

i know this is kind of broad, but any feedback would be great. I have a local fabricator that i'm working with on designing and building a rickshaw. so some grips may be my silent runners for me to start.
