That's a good plan.  I do the same.  If ticketed then ok, so what, still cheaper then most things in this state.

Adding a little to this discussion....

I learned today that street legal quads and UTV's are totally legal in the city of . wait for it . Bellevue.

Yep, soon in snohomish, legal in monroe, startup, goldbar.  Probably more places people just assume illegal

Thanks again Washington State. After getting my new Can-Am Defender street legal. Yesterday I called up my insurance company (USAA) to put insurance on it to be completely street legal. I was shocked that Washington State requires all ATV, UTV, Off road motorcycles and Snowmobiles to have added Medical Insurance to the tune of $35.00 a month on the policy. Another hidden money maker for Comrade Insley.  You can sign a waver which I did. But what a crock of @#$%^&. 
Especially since my SxS is licensed in Montana and the chances of it ever seeing a Washington road is very low.  But I 'm still a Washington resident. (for now).

We have USAA and they simply will not insure my street legal Honda Pioneer or my Harley. I have Progressive for the ATV and motorcycle.

So what happens if someone takes a side by side and drops a jeep tub on it?  Is it now a vehicle,  or still an atv?

It would have to pass inspection through the DMV to be licsensable.

I think there are a bunch of rules and laws revolving around customized vehicles. WSP inspections, new stamped VIN numbers on the frame and obvious safety requirements. By putting a jeep body on another frame, the VIN on the windshield would no longer match numbers on the frame and body which would alert WSP something is up. Vehicle VIN identifiers are found on locations other than the windshield.
