So this weekend I went on a wheeling/expedition trip and the small town where I met my friend to begin the trip happened to be the area where Soni lives. As I was crusing through town I saw a really cool looking Flat Fender parked on the side of the road, it was Soni's! :smokin:

Here are what some of you have been after, recent pictures of his Jeep -

Im not sure who soni is (but I have my suspitions). But the rig is perfect:D Optimal tire with min lift, and functional. Definatly one of those rigs you should think twice about following into the desert:eek:

I've seen this rig before on here, I think in one of SVARAS threads, but cannot find any more---build, links, etc.

A little help here,

Also, what is going on with the winch---dual powered or is that hydraullic bit used as a pump to power something else (with the winch in freespool...)???

Edit: upon closed inspection I see it's a belleview and I'm not sure that that is an electric motor at all, don't see any cables....

Edit again: just found this,

Soni Honeggar (somewhat of a pioneer in many ways) had done this back in the mid nineties "just because" on his little flatty known as rock spider way back then. He had a pto monted pump I believe on his SM465 or maybe T-18 tcase, I think it was something from a wrecker application. If I recall, the way it was rigged, the pump effectively had multiple speeds based on what gear he used in the tranny.

I've not spoke with Soni in a few yrs, but I'm sure he could walk you through it. I can't say if it was feasible or not, but it sure made the 8274 fast/powerful/versatile, better than it already was. Another friend of ours did the same with his EB and he loved his setup as well. Fast/smooth/powerful/reliable.

Looking at the dash picture, what is the lever just to the right of the battery switches? It has a plaque but I can't read what it says.
