Some of the KOH rigs have been having issues with them. They discontinued the 4 speed to launch some new improvements with the next generation and they have been pretty slow to come back out with it. They do offer a new high strength gearset in the 2 speed though. Maybe 2% of all people with an atlas could benefit from it but the option is there.

True any tire that is a sticky sucks in the snow but the amount of times any of us actually run the snow versus everything else we run they are still the best tire out there. Besides with Jims money he can afford to keep the iroks for winter and have good tires for everything else. You would know this if you wheeled.

Ya, I had sticky trepadors and I have no desire to go snow wheeling with stickies ever again. But the positives make the negatives worth the hassles.

More importantly, the best tire for Jim. And if not T-birds, then maybe some gumbo mudders on 16.5s?

No, they are not that torn up and I have been running them for 2 years, not one. I get a HUGE kick out of people who NEVER wheel saying that a tire is wearing out prematurely. They'll never wear out if you don't start your engine for 7 months. My fenders work fine. Kind of the same comment as the tires. For those that want a pretty rig, stick to the pavement or come try to follow me.

Still the stock motor from 1978. The reason it looks new is because I bought a new selonoid pack and I polished the aluminum because skooterbuilt is my hero. I also have a spare motor but don't know the HP. JohnnyJ might.

Good choice on the winch might check your motor at some point, old ones were keyways, newer are splined. I've got an older one that I'm rebuilding and putting a 4.6hp on it.

It's the keyed design. I have a spare keyed motor but need to get a spare keyed gear. I watched a bigger motor explode the drivetrain on one back in March. I'm not big on over doing the motors. It works great as-is.

Yes I did. It worked fine but I wanted something faster with more capacity on the spool. Plus, it's hard to beat the old school mechanical drive Warn.

I just don't understand why you dump upwards of $5,000 total into a jeep, then you leave sawzall cut fenders to be seen. I think you should change your investment to a total of $5100 and tube them.

It gives the wannabe's something to talk about. Oh, and I'm only up to about $3100.

Ok, in all seriousness, why did you hack off those fenders? It does look like crap.

Actually I think I did it Under his direction of course! I did it when I built the bumper and the hood hoop would have hit it and there wasn't really a good way that would clear it and look good. At the time he said something to the effect of "don't worry about it, just hack it off because I'm (or should I say me) going to put tube fenders on it very soon". Maybe they're next :shrug: Besides they're fiberglass so they bring the ugly anyway.
