I'm not sure but I'm guessing there's 5-8 gallons in each tire

that's only 235lbs or so at most for all 4 tires. I really would have thought this rig was just a hair over 2,200lbs.

My 2-seater Honda buggy is 2,940 without me in it. I have the front tires filled to the bottom of the hubs. I have to run about 2.5psi in my tires for them to work well.

Great to see this thing done and out on the trails. Been following the thread for awhile now.

Mine climbs much better with water in the front tires as well. Plus I can use the winch to suck down the front suspension if I need to.

This was one of the coolest things I have seen, wish I had gotten it on video from our angle.

Im suprized you broke longfield birf.... Mine are clicking and worn but havent given up yet. I did drop down to a 37 maxxis trep(half full of water up front) and it has made the rig better than it was on 39" Krawlers.

You can bolt in a B20 out of a CRv for added torque, and if you can find one a jackson supercharger (for instant bottom end torque)and have the ultimate honda CRAWLER powerplant

Why would he want to move the powerband up? Rock Crawlers Need low end torque....not Hella high rpm and JDM HP...YO!

Go stand in the corner......Adults are talking here!

I need to go back and reread your build thread now. Definitely an awesome rig to see perform. Keep the videos and pictures coming.
