This will be my ATLTF 4x4 wheel horse entry. It will have a hydro front and rear transaxles. The front will be narrowed and have a custom steering. Heres a list of the parts

Vampire EDL fronts and rears
KT17 kohler with 2 into 1 header
This one will be a shorter wheel base then my other mud mowers
Lifted 6 inches front and rear
Light strips inside the hoods
Removable neons so i can take them off when i go mudding
Led headlights and taillights
Front winch and maybe rear winch
front bumper
rear rack
ungoverned hand throttle
and whatever else i think about

this project will take a while but will be done and boggin by the end of the buildoff

Suspension would be difficult,having the front clutch operate with the rear clutch will be difficult enough,thanks hopefully it is really cool and will be unstoppable when it's done!!! Can't wait to get started on it

So I will have a live axle mounted under my transmission so I can speed it up a little,so I can have a 60 tooth on the transmission then a 40 tooth on the live axle and that will speed it up!!!! It will also make my steering ALOT easier to do,just waiting to get approved so I can start working on it

I'm not sure who exactly approves the builds usually, but could be the admin's just have been busy. I'll look into it for you.

It will be a fun but expensive build,I want to go with gorilla silverback 28x10-12 rear tires,and 6-12 duro fronts,plus axles,chains,sprockets,pulleys,brakes,and pillow blocks,it would cost way too much,oh yeah. I have only found 1 u joint that will work for 45 degrees and 1" shaft keyed,but it is $300 a piece,so if you guys have a better idea for my front steering using a live axle let me know,also thought about a cv shaft but they are also expensive,so let me know if you know a cheaper u joint or a cv shaft

You could try to find some used stuff somewhere if you had a place to do that. Get a U-joint from the steering off a junk car or something like that. Might have to weld a shaft to it afterwards on one side or the other possibly.

golf cart rack and pinion... also look for PTO universal joints at an AG store like rural king or tractor supply. instead of 1 inch keyed, look for 3/4 inch square, and grind a square profile on the end of the shafts

What about using two of them? even if you had to make a "throw away" welded together setup.

Hey K361Kohler! Any luck with your u-joints or cv-shafts? Any new pix of the build? Hope wrenching has gone well for you!
