That's cool too, the first I learned of them was maybe 10 years ago when they were still literal flatfender clones. These ones will work out even better for me being tall guy. IMO, a Roxor is more Jeep than a JK/JL lol.

Will be interesting to see what Jesse comes up with. I'll be shocked if it isn't running his portals.

Would that be allowed in the 4600 class?

Unless they changed the rules, yea. You can upgrade, but not change configuration.

The other day he said he was building his first set of portals in a long time without rear steer for a secret project. I'm guessing it's for the 4600. I already saw someone on facespace complaining it was a UTV in 4600.

Who cares if its a UTV in the 4600 class...its on leaf springs...
I dont really see how one of these could be competitive in the 4600 class but Jesse does some good work and has some outside of the box thinking so who knows what he will come up with

Most of the 4600 guys are excited to see it. I think it will do better than most expect.

I just got back from checking one of these out at Fox Powersports in GR.

Surprising amount of room, I was comfy at 6'5, build quality was solid, it's very basic which is what I love.

The only real downside I saw is the rear bumper is like. Thick sheetmetal, welded to the frame, and part of the body tub mounting. It'll be an ordeal to replace it with something more substantial, I don't think I'd hook a strap to what it has stock.

That is how wranglers are constructed. You just bolt your bumper to the frame from that plate.

Correct, but the Roxor just has that underneath part, nothing at all on it the way it's delivered.

A little trimming and these should bolt right up!
