    Looks fantastic man. I was curious though, kinda the same thoughts on it as the knight, it looks tippy. How well can you sidehill in that thing? I realize that it can't be much lower because of the mogs. Or is it just not a concern where your at. I haven't had the chance to do any alberta wheeling yet.

    It felt tippy when I first drove it, (it was on leaf springs and 40's before) but after getting used to, its suprisingly stable. It would be nice to have it lower, but as you stated its hard to keep it low with unimogs. I'm 7'6" to the top of the cab. I contemplated building a buggy and ditching the cab, that would have made it easier to move components around and get it lower, but I'm glad I kept the cab. I've owned the original truck since I was sixteen. Also, sometimes its nice to have a heater when wheelin in the great white north.

    I've got wheel spacers to widen the stance by 4". That will help stability as well as let me turn to full lock...Right now my 47's just barely rub my front links at full lock...The unimog diffs steer almost 15 degrees tighter than my Dana 60 did.

    So where abouts in Alberta do you live man? I work on the rigs so I'm up and around northern alberta all the time. I'd really love to come by and check that thing out in person one day. If your cool with that maybe shoot me your email and i could get your contact info.

    I'd like to try and get in TTC for 2008. I want some seat time to get used to everything, rather than try and rush and get in for 2007 (too late now anyway for 07 entries). I want to make sure I've got all the bugs worked out and I'd really like to have fuel injection before I head to TTC. Thanks for all the compliments. I can't take credit for the fab work. Evolution machining did all the fabrication on this rig. I wish I had the skill and the time, but I don't.

    Evolutionmachine.com - They have built some amazing rigs.

    Clay (One of the owners of Evolution) was featured in Petersens last month...He built the warthog and entered TTC for 2007. Hopefully he gets picked. Its a ridiculous rig. Rock crawls and runs monster truck circuits with the same rig.
