Universal Buggy Build
Well, I can't seem to get the idea out of my head that having an Ultra4 style wheeler would be pretty cool.
So, instead of putting a 6.0L in the my Comanche, aka, The Goat, I decided to buy the chassis that Corey and Trent built.
I also grabbed the axles with it, along with some other goodies.

I will post pics as I go, but I'm still in the planning and re-engineering phase.
For the most part it's all built really well, but as a fabricator myself, I have some different ideas.

This rig will be used for pleasure, but will also be able to race KOH if that option becomes more desirable than it is right now. Racing is a lot of work and money, but it is pretty awesome.

42" Rockers will be the trail tire of choice, with 46" snow shoes for winter cruises.
I plan to have a moderate build on the 6.0l to start out, but I'm sure the HP will increase accordingly.

Here's hoping I can balance working, wheeling, family time and build time so this thing happens sooner than later.

RE: Universal Buggy Build
Definitely an entirely different wheeler than the goat. Can't wait to see what you do with it.
If at first you don't succeed, Pick a better line!

At the rate we work on our projects, they will be our retirement rides.
