Four Wheel Steer, Rockwell-based Buggy Project

I've had this in Axles for a while thinking I might part it out, but it would be preferable to me to sell the whole rig, as is, without cutting it up. Project runs and drives.


Axles
- Two steering 2.5 ton rockwells - both are ujointed shafts. Both have been greased and filled with correct gear lube, and I've replaced all known bad parts on these axles, although the rear could use new boots.
- Full hydro front steering - Orbital and 3" double ended ram, originally sourced from Rockstomper
- Rear hydro steering - spool valve and single ended ram, on a raised tie rod and custom high steer arms
- Rear axle has Ouverson 16 spline alloy shafts
- Welded/locked diffs
- Wheel brakes at all four corners, with Sierra Racing Products and Wilwood calipers - easy control of massive tires.
- Rear axle is shaved
- Both front and rear suspensions are based on triangulated 3 links, with lower Y-arms each tethered with massive spherical bearings

Comes with 2 extra differentials, Flanges, all driveshafts (front is pillow blocked), extra front axle shafts, extra outer knuckles, probably another axle's worth of spare bearings, extra steel wheel centers, extra wheel studs, stock rockwell tie-rods (great spare), and shocks for the rear end




Wheels
Uber rare military double beadlock wheels ("combat"-style wheels, DUKW-era, with Stazworks-sourced 20" diameter PVC beadlock rings) and 53" Michelin XL tires, correct backspacing to work with the hub-out wheel brakes

Drivetrain
LT1 engine, all accessories, and aluminum radiator
Exhaust is set up, including O2 sensors to allow the engine to run in efficient, closed-loop mode
Twin sticked 203-205 doubler
4L60-e transmission, built with double clutch packs and "The Beast" sunshell * tranny has a small, reparable crack on the output housing
Warn M8000 winch
Sway away 16" coilovers (front) - need to be charged+valved but come with 350/300 springs
12 gal poly fuel cell
Jamar line lock for the rear axle

Cage
Cage built


Best part is that this runs, drives, and wheels pretty well. This project just really needs finishing as is, or would make a killer platform from which to start a new project.

These parts are all bombproof, and would make the basis for a killer rig - either this one finished or reworked, or transplanted into another platform.











Parts in the bottom of that last picture belong to the 5 ton-based project I was building... not included with the buggy.

Price for everything is $5100. Leave me the winch and it's $4800. This is a killer accumulation of exceptional parts, for an unbeatable price.

PM or email for more information. Buggy is located in Boulder, CO.

Thanks,
Bob

Thanks. I'm looking for someone who realizes the incredible value in these parts, and wants to drive it onto their trailer.

I don't have any offhand, and the schedule is a bit tight at the moment.

The rear, Wilwood caliper, consists of a 1 piece machined aluminum spacer that engages the back of the wheel lugs, and then bolts to a nonvented, solid, cross drilled rotor.

The front, SRP, has a steel spacer that again engages the back of the wheel studs, correctly positioning the vented rotor to slide inside the SRP caliper.

Each of the kits requires that you pull the spindle studs from the knuckles and replace them with grade 8 cap screws, to allow axial clearance for the hub.

Please let me know if those pics are make/break on your purchase of the vehicle, and I'll see what I can do. Having driven this when it was just pinion braked, there's a reason I went with wheel brakes - they are much more effective than pinion brakes, and will allow you to still have full braking in the event you blow an axle shaft.

Best,
Bob
