ok.... :eek: thats a divorced 205 ran off a 2wd tranny with a disk brake off the rear output as a..brake :confused: the front output running to ANOTHER 205 :eek: and a chain driven pump for the full hydro steering....

Its tech qualification is what NOT to do to a vehicle :laughing:

i thought it was kind of an interesting set-up, if it was done a little cleaner, i think it would get some serious looks, but all the rust and torch-cut steel makes it look like booty-fab even thought it might be sound.

the rear ds angle looks like it sucks. if you simplified his design something it isnt too bad an idea, just that there are a lot of ujoints in there to give up. looks like its on track for a mud truck.

I think he's definatly got something going there...If it actually works and makes the truck go forward :D


Just needs to clean it all up real good. And true, that is a lot of joints going on there!!

yeah, I think that what everyone is saying is that there are a lot of joints to fail. Like you have no brakes if one of those joints lets go or if that little outer shaft breaks when you apply the brakes.
thats a lot of br(e)akes in one sentence :laughing:
less booty than a lot of shit out there, but pretty bad anyway
By the way, I put on a sanctioned mud race and you ought to see some of the shit that shows up there. I want to post some of it but don't want to have my name connected with it :laughing:

just a note: as far as brakes, it looks like the rear drums still have lines running to them. maybe the disk is purely for extra braking power, especially since it's up the gear reduction ladder a bit.

I think you are right FL666. I have seen that setup in MI before, well not THAT setup but a driveline break for tractor tires. Drum brakes don't stop those big tires for reasons we all know.

So that is a D70 front axle? I thought those were closed knuckle? That looks like a kingpin C but I don't see daylight shining through it. I can't tell. What is it you guys think?

it's not set up too well, but i have seen worse. :rolleyes: so the rear transfer case is being used as a v-drive? it took me a few minutes to figure it out. :confused:

Hmmm looks like someone should lay off the meth....
I need to know where that front drive line is connected....Does that thing have a motor up front too?..I'm thinking this rig does more than wheeling.Maybe its the start of a pumpkin slinger...

Its not my thing but this is nothing compared to the vast majority of "show rigs" on the street out there. At least that thing was never ment to be on the road, it doesnt appear to be super dangerous (once the joints are covered) and it seems kinda functional. I'd drive it into the bayou.
