04 Rhino with Samuri Axles

Here is how it looks now, kind of rough but will get finish grinding, welding, detail and paint. Then I start the rear. I will be buying offset wheels to increase the width to make it stable but not too wide. I set it up to fit 33" Boggers and plan to build a chain drive transfercase to increase the gear ratio to about 7.47:1. I run alot of 2 tracks with mud holes and some steep hills, I need the low gear ratio and don't care for the whole high speed thing. I'd rather climb over things or just smash through them

Hell of a lot of fabrication...looks good.

If you are planning on using the 660 engine you better look into upgrading the middle drive gear...

I have a zook too. Been thinking about doing a tube chassis with Rhino plastics and zook guts.

Here are a couple pictures of the Rhino with the new rims mounted. I have the rear axle cut down ,welded, and rebuilt and I'm working on the springs and 4 link in the rear. Also getting the parts together for the custom transfer case.
I know some folks don't get it but to each his own.

It looks pretty cool! I can't wait for some pics of it in the trails. Keep us updated with your progress. It's nice to see people think outside the box.
