SEARS ( BUILD PLAN  ) SURVIVOR !!
It will get a STRETCH  up front !! , new tires , new paint , 10si or 12 si alternator , lights , front bumper and winch , back rack , 4 on 4 lug  hubs up front , 8 inch wheels and tires up front , gas pedal , new clutch , all new wiring and battery ( put will still be pull start ) new exhaust , and new foot boards . i do have a list of stuff to buy like tires,alt. , and square tube for the stretch, but all should be a low cost build !

LOL this is my build soul survivor - i have stretched it almost 15 inchs all together , front axle is moved about 12 inchs forward , new front bumper , i locked the 633 , built back rack , raised and changed the steering wheel , built a new exhaust with a older round muffler off a 10hp brigs flat head , new front tires x-tracs 16/6.5/8 , new rear tires ITP mud lite 25/8/12 . now im waiting on the alternator , winch and tie rods !! i have the paint and some decals for the last bit of touches !! this build will be done with in the next month because i have more time on this build because the other build im doing is so demanding !!

i was not sure if i would like the way it would look , but now that its done with the stretch im really loving it !! im known for my stretch's on craftsman mud rigs i build and all my buddy's gave it the name the McCarty Stretch !! i have never seen one done before on a suburban and thought what the heck ! why not ? the only thing i could do was screw it up right ? LOL

PostSubject: survivor update #2   Mon Apr 03, 2017 8:09 am

this tractor has come a long ways !! as of right now she is 95% done !! all new paint , tires . i had the 6.5 predator in it for a few mins LOL but came acrouss a VAN GUARD v-twin 18 hp !! why not ? so i pulled the lil guy out and dropped in the v-twin , i hope this will be ok with the ATLTF administrators because i did not have this motor at the start ? either way i love the new motor and i hope you do to !! back to the rig - i did run new pipes and changed the motor pulley to a 5 inch but still has the stock rear pulley it, s not a very fast rig but it will be a verry reliable rig in the trails , around the house , or just playing in the mud !!

Looks good, nice stretch! I bet that vanguard fits in there better than the predator.
