Rock Crawler

***SOLD****

I have obviously place too much value in my junk! I guess we all think our stuff is worth more than it is. Anyway, I have reduce the price again.

PRICE REDUCED $13,500 Located in Truckee, California (near Lake Tahoe)

Its been a great buggy but I just dont use it enough. I have found my next project... a 79 Chief and would like to find a good home for this buggy.

-Engine: Chevy 350 V8 Vortec motor from 97 Chevy Tahoe, cool jet headers, one-wire alternator, dual batteries
-Transmission: 700R4, reverse manual valve body, 2700 RPM stall speed (fluid/filter changed September 12) Tranny shifts P-R-N-1-2-3-4. The only thing needed is a new shifter gate because it's labeled backward and restricts it from going into 4th.
-Suspension: 4-Link w/ Bilstein Racing Shocks
-Axles: Dana 60 front and rear with 5.13 Reverse Cut gears. Locker: Spooled in rear, Detroit in front. 5 on 5.5, yes narrowed, and the buggy fits between the wheel wells on a flat bed or enclosed trailer. The axles are fully custom built with custom center sections and housings. Currie semi float in the rear and the front is Ford 450 unit bearings, also Currie built. (Front = Ford, driver side diff, high pinion, ball joint newer than 95) Chromoly F&R axle
-Transfer Case: Atlas II, two speed, twin sticks, 3.8 with heavy duty output shaft
-Wheels: 17 Pro Comp Aluminum Bead Locks
-5 Tires: 39.5 x 13.50 BFGoodrich Krawlers (sticky)
-Chassis: Custom chromoly tube on 1991 Jeep YJ frame rails
-Custom door on the driver side. EASY in/out!
-17gal. Summit fuel cell
-Passenger oh shit T-grab handle
-Front and rear Twisted Custom links, steel. 1-3/4" OD 3/4" ID DOM 1/2" wall, no welded inserts
-Heavy duty, FK or QA1 heims
-Brakes: Disc brakes all around - Chevy Rear, Wilwood Front, HydroBoost master cylinder from a 96 Chevy G30 (5.7l cargo van)
-Seats: PRP Suspension Seats with 4 point PRP harness
-PSC hydro assist pump with box from Red Neck Ram
-Winch: Front and Rear Warn winches, synthetic line (Only about 50 on the front winch)
-Painless wiring harness
-Wheel base: 103"
-Chassis Width: 48"
-78 wheel to wheel
-belly height 22" or so and it can be changed

Im a paraplegic and currently have hand controls (gas and brake) in this rig. They are easy to remove (bolt in/out) but if another gimp wants this rig, Ill leave them in.

I also have an open deck car hauler that could be part of a package deal

If you have questions call or text: 530-412-one-five-one-one

ALSO, I DON'T CHECK HERE EVERYDAY SO IF YOU HAVE A QUESTION, E-MAIL ME (billbowness@earthlink.net).

Thanks!

Great looking buggy. Seems like a very good price. GLWS

The pictures look like mostly crawling. How do you like the 2,700 stall? I'm currently stock at 1,750 and thinking about going to 2,500. I do mostly crawling. Just interested in your "real world" opinion.

Thanks, and again, GLWS

If you need a stall converter you don't have enough gearing or not enough engine. IMO

It is a nice buggy. GLWS

I have a stall just so the brakes work better while in low low gear, nothing to do with power because I have plenty

great to see another wheelchair user out wheelin.
i really like that you have openable door bars to help ya get in your rig.

i'm an incomplete para--can still walk a little--have no feeling in my legs
plus all the other things that go along with spinal cord injury. 14 years and counting.

bump for a nice rig at a good price.

I see this thing al the time near my BIL's house. I gotta say, it is nice knowing that this sport can be done by anyone.
