Any updates on this thing? Knew they existed, but didn't realize their potential until stumbling across this sub forum on the board.

Not really. Haven't had time to use it other than fartin around the yard with it. I have a lot of ideas for it, just no time.

Haven't done much with the Roxor other than use it around the house.

I did add Ruff Stuff pinion guards and Yukon drive flanges up front.



Also took it out to a local park for a quick trip. Didn't take many pictures. Had a great time on the rocks and exploring all the trails. Been a long time since I've been there. The rocks have really gotten grown over. Next up is another local offroad park having an event this weekend.

Spending all my time on our new Ranger build. Hopefully get some more time on the Roxor this winter, along with all of the other projects.

So Saturday (10/19/2019) we did a thing ...


2nd place in the 4600 class at the Ultra4 Nationals .

I think we have known for a while KOH will let UTVs into 4600 - but only if it's the right person asking. Let's see if 4600 has an active class in 5 years. The death of 4600 won't happen in one season. If you need help I can explain how it works.

No build thread on this one. Here are some specs:

-2019 Ford Ranger XL Super Cab 4x4
-Factory E-locker rear
-3.5" lift with tubular upper control arms (Radflo Coilovers waiting to go on)
-16x8 ProComp Series 69 wheels
-35x12.50-16 Maxxis Trepadors

Our parts on that are on it:

-Full skid plate system from front bumper to t-case, also shock skids.
-Front Hidden winch mount
-Steel Flatbed system with integrated rear winch mount

At some point in the future i'd like to buy or build a small camper that fits on the flatbed. The treps are temporary and will be replaced with either an M/T or A/T tire for daily use.

I had 12 days off for the holidays and decided to use 11 of them swapping the suspension of the roxor over to a Radius arm front and 3 link rear. On day 12 we took it to the Mounds to test it out.






Since time was limited with only 11 days, I decided to start with a TJ Long arm system from Rough Country. I also took very limited photos, but will get more of the finished product after a wash.

Why Rough Country?
We are a dealer for them and I'm able to get their parts for a good price and almost next day delivery. Ideally I was only after the frame mounts but figured I can reuse their control arms for now and save some time and money there. Generally I was pretty impressed with everything I got and most of the boxes said "Made in US" on them. We'll run the control arms for now and upgrade to 2" DOM and heims later.

Next I ordered Artec Shock towers, lower control arm mounts, one upper mount and lower track bar brackets, along with 4 FOX 2.0x12 air shocks.

Here are the limited pictures that I took during the build.

The rear shock towers are tied into the cage and the fronts are tied together.








Overall I'm pretty happy with it. We crawled over everything we could find. Stayed out of the big rocks until I get some rock sliders. I need to add some more nitrogen to the shocks and raise it up a smidge. Also, if you know most TJ long arm kits share the same pivot point for the frame side rear control arms. Not ideal, but didn't have the energy to change it in this short time. I really didn't feel much negative effects from it until climbing a ledge. You could feel the rear end trying to lift the body instead of climbing the ledge. That's an easy fix with a new upper mount though. Will get rid of the radius arm up front in favor of a true 3-link when I build new links.

Probably some copyright infringement so Jeep wont sue them. I know Jeep went after GM with the Hummer 2 and the grille they had.


Id love to buy one of these and throw my F350 axles under there.
