So I purchased this crusty little tracker and plan to squeeze my 6'6" 275lb ass into it.
Thats about all for now.
Oh, I found a dead bird in it.

Nice. I'm building a very small tube chassis using all tracker drivetrain. Motor,trans,case,axle and ifs front into a low budget rzr killer. Lol. I have the whole body and frame if you need anything off it before it goes to scrap

I feel bad for the tracker. Not because you are big and it is small, but because I'm sure that it will be driven with No Fawks Given.

Sounds like a sweet build, I'd like to check it out sometime.
Is the body super rust? I plan to cut this one up alot anyway, but it is super rusty.

Sure would like to see a build thread on this. I have been contimplating something similar, except I do not have your skill set and would want to retain the frame if possible....

So I was looking at this little piece of shit tonight and thought it might be cool to dovetail it. So I started cutting.





I'm not sure where I'm going with this, but it should be fun.

Nice air.
This one is kinda crusty, I might do a harbor frieght poop pipe cage on it to strengthen it up some. I think I'm going to mount the body ridged to the frame also.

I've been looking at some 30" UTV tires for it. Trying to stay light weight this time. No Boggers.
I will be welding up the rear though.
