PostSubject: the cadillac lt1000 build   the cadillac lt1000 build Icon_minitimeOctober 23rd 2013, 9:39 pm

my original "General Lee" build busted for my 99 lt1000, but the build is in full swing now that i have a job. I drove it to work the first day i got it running (only did a pulley swap) and my boss and co-worker called it a caddy. That caught on quick! So, i plan on making it an offroader, not like a luxury car still. I want to get a REINFORCED hood with caddy emblems, finalize the pully swap (4in front, 4in back; its stock front, 4in back right now), atv tires (thinking 18in carlisle trail wolf), and some type of detachable rack for long rides. My hours have been cut at work because of school, im still doing as much as i can to it. Updates and pics are coming soon. Please throw ideas to me, but nothing to crazy!

Why do I have a sudden urge to go get a quart of Hemi Orange, and quickly make General Mayhem a little more "southern"? LOL

UPDATE: Got a new camera. the caddy is in votech now and now some real work will be done. but im debating the locked diff. i will do alot of road ridin, so im worried about the steering. Heres my main problem. Will the tire on the inside of the turn will it jump like a bad skidloader operator? I can get it welded in the welding class, but do any of you guys have issues steering. let me know. ill post more tomarrow if i can.

We do a decent amount of road riding and turning really isn't a problem. At least for us, the tractors don't weigh enough to get started hopping when a tire slips going through a turn... that's not to say our tractors are particularly light or anything. They are definitely heavier than stock.
