Newest toy

My latest toy is almost finished. Started it 2 years ago after my last leg issue.
60" wide, 2,000 lbs, 158 hp 4x4 hi/lo transfer case
Powersteering and Brakes, automatic, heater and A/C?
Started out as a really nice Chevrolet Tracker
Making easy-off doors and a soft top for it as well.

Cool! That looks like a whole lot of fun! The A/C will make August outings a little more bearable!

It is amazing how still the air is behind the windshield at 50
The heat and AC actually are very effective.

Re: Newest toy

Pretty cool indeed. Is 60" a modified width? (I guess yes)

The original track is 57 but I'm running a little wider tire.
Eliminating wrap around bumpers and body panels does a lot for width reduction.

Re: Newest toy

Not sure that is safe.

You should loan it to me for the summer to test it's safety for you.

Re: Newest toy

Well I've put about 2k miles on it so far. This thing is incredible.
Best project I have had to date. I have one sold and a group from Michigan talking about wanting several. Still working out the top and door issue.

I just started a business venture that is almost more than I can handle.
www.groomers.supply
Selling dog grooming equipment and sharpening clipper blades.
Partial retirement is wearing me out.
