Looks awesome, Brent. Definitely something you don't see everyday! I'm curious as to the reasoning behind the dual wheels... . Shed some light on this for all of this if you would. ~Steve

Check out the viewports in the floor boards! What are you running for a rear axle?

Hi -

Overall width from outside to outside tire is 82". The purpose of 8 tires is to achieve the stability and width of a full size type axle without the big span between the insides of the tires, which causes the axle to get high-centered or hung up on everything. Also, I end up with a better contact pressure and pattern on uneven surfaces. The vehicle can be changed back to a conventional wheel set up in minutes but I wanted to give this experiment a 'spin' at least for comparison sake!!

It's kind of wacky, tell us about the axles and the gears.

Hi Fatkid -

Well, it has our custom Big Suz-Ana axles front and rear with 5.63's and ARB's. It has a 6.129:1 transfer case, a panel of switches for the selection of circle steer, side steer, rear steer only, and front 2 wheel low only. It has 4 wheel disc brakes, and cutting brakes.

Very cool! I'm not used to the dually thing quite yet but cheers to you for trying something really different, especially when its setup to change if it doesnt work. The tube work looks nice, heck I even like the colors!

now all we need are some real action pics. u should have used 38x11 boggers that would have been sweet. i am curious how it works though. i would think it would be too wide and expensive, killing the obvious reason you get sami in the first place .

really though, hats off for creativity and actually building it. i would really love to see it in action. it looks sweet, and as you wheel it and refine it i'm sure it will only get better.

Wow, that thing kicks ass .... but IMO, it would be even sweeter with just 4 tires
Nice work!!!
