4 Seat Ultimate trail buggy -Utah
Turnkey Ultimate Trail buggy for sale, $43K, will consider partial trade for a 4-seat Side by Side. Located in Salt Lake City, Utah.


Pictures and one short video are here https://photos.app.goo.gl/7JUZANVzn3B39KyN8 Its hard to find pictures without a bunch of family in it or a video without someone saying something dumb.

Chassis: 4 Seat Ibex (goatbuilt), weight ~4100 lbs trail ready, Wheelbase 117”, width (outside of tires) 84.5”, Belly height 15.5”, Overall Length (front of front tire to rear of rear tire) 158”, negative approach and departure angles, Ground to lowest point on front axle 15”, ground to lowest point on rear axle 12.75”. Painted with red/black hammerite. This vehicle is titled (VIN number), registered, and insured in the state of Utah.

Engine: 2008 6.2L L92 (102K miles) basically converted to LS3. LS3 intake, injectors VVT deleted. Vinci high performance custom ground cam .551”/.551/212/224/114+0A, yellow terra 1.8 ratio ultra-light roller rockers and springs, dyno tuned. Melling oil pump, ARP head bolts, Griffin aluminum radiator, 3qt Accusump oil accumulator (currently disconnected). Shorty headers, 3.5” exhaust, dual Magna-flow mufflers, Dyno tuned, 321HP 315 ft/lbs to the ground with the super-heavy drivetrain and 42” tires. I won’t speculate on what the motor is actually putting out at the crank since I've never had the motor on the dyno outside of the vehicle. It’s safe to say that it is a lot, it’s very fast.

Transmission: 6l80 w/new hydraulic pump, controlled with a winters shifter, cooled by a large Griffin fluid cooler. This is an auto with a very low 1st gear, I do 99.9% of my rockcrawling in high range.

Transfer case: rebuilt NP205 w/32 spline input and transfer case, cable shifters to cab (E-brake kit installed).

Suspension: 14” travel ORI STX in the Front 16” ORI STX shocks in the rear. Control arms are swappable from front to rear, 2x.250 lowers and 1 3/8 x .188 uppers, all spherical rod ends.

Front Axle: Custom Hybrid dana 44/60, cryo 5.38 gears, 35 spline chromoly inner and outer shafts, Yukon super joints, 35 spline ARB, billet 7075 T-6 diff cover, crane inner C’s Yukon super hubs (have flanges too).

Rear Axle: Shaved Ford 10.25, 5.38 gears Yukon Grizzly locker, 35 spline, disc brakes.

Driveshafts: High angle driveline .250 wall, mixture of 1410/1450 rear and 1350 in the front. Front is a 2-piece design with a carrier bearing to keep shaft alignment perfect during articulation. No CV joints.

Wheels/tires: Wheels are champion 17”x10” aluminum beadlocks. Tires are new (1 run on them) Goodyear Wrangler MT/R 42x14.5R17 with Kevlar. Have a spare (new), its inclusion is negotiable.

Brakes: Vanco Hydroboost primary braking power through adjustable proportioning valve, 1 ton discs front, ton rear disc. Emergency braking is provided with a High-Angle driveline emergency brake on the NP205 transfer case

Steering: PSC pump and full hydraulic ram, reservoir/cooler/filter, and orbital through Performance Offroad Systems.

Air: 2.5 Gallon tank and electric Air pump

Fuel: 20 gallon tank, Chevy stock drop in pump/sending unit, corvette regulator, braided stainless covered fuel lines with aeroquip fittings

Electric: Optima red top, painless fuse block, modified stock engine harness, push button start, all wiring is routed in techflex, secured with cushion clamps, and terminated in Weather Pack connectors for ease of maintenance.

Lighting: Audi A4 headlights, LED rock lights on all 4 corners, 48” LED light bar, turn signals, brake lights, license plate light, side and rear-view mirrors (this is a street-legal rig).

Recovery: Winch is a Warn HS9500i with synthetic rope…….heavily used on prior vehicle, only used once on this vehicle, to pull someone else out. Seriously, you probably won’t need it.

Interior: PRP seats, PRP harnesses front and rear, autometer gauges aluminum flooring/firewall, vinyl covered plastic side panels, CD radio w/Bluetooth and USB input, Tuned Uniden Pro 510XL CB, Seat heaters, rear cooler mount, speaker pods double as the tail lights.

Probably some other shit I forgot about, I spared no expense on this build. This was a 3-year labor of love, and it’s a lot of fun to drive. However, in the spirit of candor, my 4-year-old son got cancer immediately after our last Moab trip last year and I haven’t touched it since except to start it a few times this winter. Looking forward, it really doesn’t look like it will be used for another few years either.

I’m not looking for any trades and you can keep low-ball offers to yourself. I’m not in a rush to sell, it costs me nothing but registration and insurance to keep it. Even less if I leave it parked. More pics available upon request. Asking $43K, PM me if you’re serious and I’ll give you my phone number.

Thanks for looking. :flipoff2:
