oh the exhaust will be re done to wrap in front of the oil pan and have one single 2.5" tube running under the drivers seat. This shoudl allow 6-8" more leg room per person in the front.

and a standard remote cooler with fan will be added in the rear for the hydro system. it will be as large as the tranny one helping it run ice cold!!


keep in mind with all these mods. the chassis was originally designed to be able to be a 3-4 seater. but that idea was FAWKED from the start. what was i thinking.

G-Tech and Geek came out to help.



ok so the WB was 108.5"



it now sits at 102-3/8". amazing diference on how sharp it tunrs. feels so quick and nimble.



the tube we took off was heavy as shit. me and Geek were huffin and puffin carrying it to the dumpster. and the tube i put in its place i could easily carry. basically 2/3 of a stick of tube.



Did soem maintinace. tightend some bolts. found my winch is broken/cracked. i wonder if thats a warranty item.



so here it is.

shorter WB because the 109 wasn't doign it for me. way to long for technical wheeling.

with a WB that long you cant turn sharp enough. and you belly is always scraping on the ground.
