It was built by the gentleman in the blue shirt. Eric @Fat City. The rig is a Bronco and is being built for a customer who is on this board. Reynolds. The engine i believe is a 351 bored & stroked to a 426. Something like 450 horse 500 torque. Atlas t-case and custom portal axles as you can see. Hopefully Reynolds will post some better more acurate specs.

Those axles are cool! How did you make them portal? Are they gear drive or some sort of chain drive? They look to be Ford 9". Is that what they are?

Bro John's creation is truly the most exotic frame and axles I've ever seen. I can hardly wait for the maiden voyage. I'm just worried about the de-bugging cycle. I hope it's not too protracted and ends before the WRCC begins.
regards, as always, jefe

Eric's working feverishly to meet the deadline for the competition. I am there assisting him whenever I can, chasing parts emptying the garbage can or whatever! I can't believe the number of fans that drop by to hang out at the shop. I appreciate their enthusiasm, but hope they will understand our deadline. Thanks for the good comments that have been posted about the project!!

Upside down?? How does that work? Do the unimog outers reverse direction?
