My ATV is 48" wide.

I checked out the little 'zuk and the yellow Spitfire at the Pig Gig two years ago.

Not only are these unique vehicles - they're well done, and well thought-out with great attention to detail (like the adjustable roll bar on the Spit).

Not being locked didn't stop you from driving up a 3 foot cliff and then driving 3 feet up a tree while the rear was still on level ground hehe.Good times.

Hey Rick, have there been anymore Suzuki trailrides lately or coming up? My dad and I met you in Whitehall a couple years ago when you were driving your yellow spitfire...now we both have sammies and a sammy trail ride would be fun.

Hey Rick

Yeah, yeah I know... It sux having a front spool when in the tight shit but at least now one of my tires doesn't stop turning as I am climbing a hill or something. (I don't get stuck like that as often, now it just takes 3 or MORE points to turn some corners! I look at it this way, now I have forearms like POPEYE) Now I just need to save up for a SELECTABLE lockerup front!


Looking forward the the Christmas Tree Run this Saturday! Ready to get the hell out of the city for a couple day and play in the snowy woods.

Im sure thats what it is:chiefwoohaw::chiefwoohaw:

Sweet new ride Rick how have you been? Maybe I should have you come down and finish my rig for me The way its going know I should be ready by mid DEC, 2008.

Hay maybe you should try converting a John Deer riding mower into a wheeling rig, maybe throw some sammie axles under throw 3 or 4 t-case in it and you should be good to go
Keep up the Crazy shit and I hope to see you soon.




P.S. you are right it is a pain follow somebody that cant turn like "EPIkE"
