    Ok, so it's not really mine, but I'm helpin out with the build. Belongs to my bud and his brother. They picked up the chassis pretty much already built for like $200. Doin ALOT of changes of course...Was origanally set up for a chevy motor and drivetrain. That got yanked in favor of 22re, toy trans and dual toy cases by Marlin Crawler. The rear will be a dual triangulated 4 link with XJ coils. D70 with Detroit and 7.17 gears. Front will also be 4 linked, but with coil-overs. D60 with 7.17 gears. Still alot left to do, not even close to being finished. This is pretty much just a wheeler/thrasher...It prolly won't get any paint except on the bare areas..., nothin but the bare minimum. No bling on this one. :blink: :pimp1:

    Cool, but 49's and 22R? Aren't there any obstacles that require wheelspeed around there? Not flaming...just don't think a Toy motor is up to the task of spinning monster meats.

    With 7.17's and dual t-cases, id guess a crawl ratio around 300ish to 1. May be liveable.

    The question was wheel-speed.

    With a 5:1 first, 2.2's in the first case, 4.7's in the second case, and 7.17's in the axles, it'd be 370:1 on a 154" circumference tire. That means at 6,000 RPM's at the motor you're getting 16.2 RPM's at the axleshaft, which translates into 2.3 mph.

    Just makin sure you weren't stoopid. :p:

    I beat on my friend's Yota...35's, 4.7 case and 5.29's and when any wheelspeed is required it rides the rev limiter.

    At the frame end, the upper links are rubber busings, Johny Joints at the axle. Lower links have bushings at the axle and Johnny Joints at the frame. I had my doubts, and when I mentioned it, they didn't think it was gonna be a problem. :confused: I would have thought that Johnny Joints all the way around would have worked better....Time will tell if I'm right or not. :D

    22R and 49's sounds like it would be a fair drag race w/ my Marvza (1.6l on 37's)....

    You're right! For crawlin' its the sh!t.... But last year we got out in some sand dunes and my rig was damn near worthless...! :haha: Actually I did better than a couple of 1 ton/small block Fullsize rigs!

    No wheel spacers....Hummers wheels on backwards. They haven't fully figured out the wheel situation yet. :wink1:

    It's definitely got spacers, the Hummers are right side out.
