Creating a layout of the off-road 4x4 utility vehicle by setting parts on the floor of my workshop and building a wooden frame for width, height and length reference. I want this vehicle to fit in a 1500x3000mm car trailer so that sets some limits to how big this vehicle actually can be. I also don't want it to be as big as regular UTV-s or SxS-s so I can easily drive it around in the overgrown bush. I can barely drive a Honda Foreman Rubicon TRX500FA around in the bush without having to create new trails. :) Thanks for watching. Next episode next week. Stay tuned!
This is part of a series of a four wheel drive utility vehicle build to lessen the work load on my trusty 2002 Honda Foreman Rubicon TRX500FA. This partially answers the question "Why?" but for those who want to ask "why don't you just buy a side-by-side instead of building one?" I just want to say - I'm not made of money. Side-by-sides are ridiculously expensive, even the car I drive around daily is worth less (not worthless though!), hell, it is even worth less than my 2002 Honda ATV.
"How much HP will it have?" - the 1.4 litre FWD petrol engine I'm planning on using has 55 kw and this will not change, but the torque will be tripled via the BMW differentials I'm using to transfer power to front and rear axles.
"It will be too heavy!" - this project just like the firewood processor project does not have to float. And a heavier vehicle will handle better anyway when hauling heavy loads.
Stay tuned for future episodes! Thanks for watching!

Almost looks like if you flip the differential upside down you could bolt the rear part of the control arms/a-arms to it?

You make this look so easy! I know it cannot be this easy. You must have cut the lumber they are very straight. Home Depot or Lowes have crooked lumber always.

I LOVE YOUR VIDEOS!!!!!! Many American vehicles have the front wheels wider than the rear. Pontiac called it wide track. It gives better control of vehicle.

Wow that thing is going to be heavy... strong but heavy :-) Are BMW axels really hollow? that sure came as a surprice to me! If you clean up the parts you are going to use first, then you wont get as dirty :-P I am quite impressed by you, you make your own lumber to build stuff and then you build cool stuff from what is scrap to most other people... Damn cool!
