is you're guy interested in making a few more? I'm assuming he needs both the dash and engine harness?
Yes he can make more.OBD0 or OBD1(my next one will be OBD1 tuned with crome!!!)
He doesnt need anything but a deposit to get after what you want.

His harnesses are so complete you only have a pos/neg connection to make,fuel pump and includes the factory fan and alternator control!!!He even goes as far to include the ignition toggle and momentary switch to start it!

Let me know what engine/trans combo you want to use and I can get ya a price!!!

Back on topic......

Hey Ian,Are those 42s gonna keep ya outta the mud???

Some changes were made in the front and rear of this from Rockapes original.Rockape definitely did a killer job with the original chassis but are those tweaks your or his second version chassis?

The tweaks are all mine, I liked the Rock Ape version but once I had the tube bent and in place it just didn't jive with how I thought the buggy should look. So I made a few subtle changes nothign too over the top just mainly the front stinger and the new front "fender tubes" I think it looks a little more like a sports car now....

Coolest thing is that the principle measurements on this buggy WB, Track, are the same as the Diesel powered zuk I built before.

Ian,

Bad ass build man, look forward to seeing the finished rig. Also, Thank you for being so nice as to take the pic at the KOH with my son Lucas. I don't know if you remember but it totally made his day big time. You had just gotton to Jack Hammer with you camera equipment and we were leaving. You were standing right at the back of my truck talking with someone. Anyways just wanted to say thanks man, much appreciated.

As far as I know, just the honda transaxle with the diff welded. the engine and trans now sitting in line with the chassis one transaxle output to the front axle and one to the rear axle, just like a transfercase just without the ability to go 2-4 and hi-low.

Quick question... In the event that you need to pull the engine/transmission for work how are you going to get them out? It looks like you've encased the power train in DOM which will even make it difficult to paint. Or am I missing something?

Looks a bit like an old COE truck I had.
The only way to get the engine out was to uncouple everything, support the engine and then lift the truck off it with a BobCat.

It can come out the bottom like alot of crawlers, or the top. The center tube is removeable thanks to some tubing clamps from Ballistic Fabrication http://www.ballisticfabrication.com/...mp_p_1467.html they work really well, I find I use them on more projects now that I have easy access to them.

I was wondering the same. I was originally thinking this was your personal rig Ian, but then I see you're still on the one you started in the Crawl article.
