26 HP v-twin
White hydraulic motors
Hydro steering
4 link rear
3 link front
coil overs

has a 78" wheel base and approx 54" tall(will fit in short box pick up with tail gate down)

Made a wood mock up. and so far have the front and rear suspension and main part of chassis tacked together and most of the machine work and tabs and brackets done.

Hope to have it done by June!

Made a little more progress. Fabbed up drive that connect's hydro motors to axles. Made the steel bar stock that clamps the suspension to the chassis , made the pan hard mount and tacked it on. Threw in a picture of the wood mock up with the tires and wheels to show a little better idea of what it should look like.

Just waiting on the ram to show up to finish mocking up steering, then can make winch mount, mount pan hard and check travel for shock length

he told me he was targetting it to be exactly 1 size smaller then what you can fit in, if you can fit in it you would end updoing so, and braking it.
