Roxor Crawler Build

Just picked it up yesterday, it is the Roxor Classic II. With the classic II you get nothing but aluminum wheels and BFG A/Ts. Should be the perfect platform for our build. The thing is pretty neat and brings out the inner Jeep nerd in me. The plan is to basically base it off the classic CJ/YJ/TJ crawler platform. I've already bent the front bumper and put a nice ding in the oil pan.

Immediate plans:

-Bumpers (fronts already been designed)
-Rock Sliders
-Rear corner armor
-Skid plates
-Shackle lift
-Lockers
-Bigger M/T tires

Future Plans:

-Waggy/Scout Dana 44s for the added width
-35" Trepadors Bias
-Cage
-Links/Coilovers
-Place holder for future use.

Just crawling out from under my rock on these, they look super cool!


Does it have enough reserve power to carry the extra weight of all the skids/armor? You don't seem to be wasting any time beating on yours... Not scared of being able to get parts for it?

(Sorry for the noob Q's)

I'm tuned in...

Sounds like a good build. They do shockingly well. Here is one I wheeled in Moab on 33s.

Seems to. Top end is slow, but the torque is sufficient.

I've toyed with the idea of buying one and doing a Willys body swap so definitely following along.

There is talk of governed top end. Have you looked into this and how to get around that? I would be curious about those numbers

Subscribed to this, one of these is definitely on the want list. I talked to a salesman last week who claimed once they are ungoverned and get a little tune they go as fast as youd want to take it..

Gotcha!

In the video 87manche posted they made 200ft/lb with their tune, seems like that would be adequate.

I'm getting all giddy like a school girl so might be reading this wrong:

Crossing up crank vs. wheel measurements- I was trying to read #'s from the dyno sheet, my mistake.

Mustang Dyno's typically are "conservative" in their measurements so it could likely be a few points more across the board.

I sent the front and rear bumper drawings off to the laser cutter. Hopefully have them back in a week or so.

Bumpers are back from the laser cutter. Few tweaks to make and they'll be ready.





The front will have D-ring shackle mounts and some tube on it. The rear is pretty low profile. I'll have some better pics by the end of the week.

how close are they to the CJ when it comes to frames and so forth? I was wondering if you could swap a CJ grille onto them or use aftermarket parts for the CJs to fit these.

Very cool little rigs for sure. i also wonder if there is a way to get them street legal? Anyone know?

Only a few similarities, supposedly you can swap on windshield frames, dash, door hinges, locking hubs, dana 44 axle components and maybe some others.

The frames seem to be completely different, the tub is longer than a CJ7, but the hood is shorter I believe. This grill is just a plastic panel that clips to a sheetmetal housing that hold the radiator.

The hood is early cj5. 4 + inches shorter than cj7.
