    OK so I got the axles back from Ventures Truck Parts and wow they are cool, and beefy!!! I will show more on them in a bit. I threw the tire on and rolled them underneath to start getting some placement ideas.

    I'll have to keep watching because I don't understand how both rear axles get powered....

    I like how far apart each axle is.

    By looking at the middle axle facing towards the rear I would think some kind of a V drive or something like that. Maybe something like a SCS transfer case or something like that.

    With the rear axles mounted that far apart, aren't the tires gonna scrub a TON when you turn? Even to the point where you couldn't turn at all without a massive amount of binding? My trailer tires scrub a ridiculous amount, and the axles on it are only 36"(?) apart... Is there something I am missing?

    Stan is trying something different than his last truck. Smaller, lighter, and more maneuverable. All qualties the t rex did not have. He and his build partner are sharp individuals who will have this figured out. They are still trying to figure out stuff at this point. I also would think rear steer would be a great idea but, it would make some things complicated and that may have to wait for another day. I think they are trying to have this done by the first of june. Not a lot of time for a build this ambitious.

    Great build fellas! Keep up the great work.

    Hmmm, no rear steer and the rear axles that far apart???? I'm thinking some sort of hydrostatic drive. Always wanted to see that on an off road rig.
    Too many projects, too little time.

    Alex and I really wrangled with the Wrangler design. The plan was to set a drop box (out of a monster truck) in the middle of the two axles and a short drive shaft between the drop box and the axles. This would allow alot of articulation not having two drive shafts coming out of the transfer case and have to use a carrier baring to get the rear drive shaft all the way back. The we hit a snag. Tom Wood would have a difficult time matching our 14 spline 1480 yokes comming off of the Drop box. He then started talking about custom yokes and the $$$$$$$$$$$ went up way out of my budget. So I picked up a 205 to see if it would work inbetween the axles. It is much heavier and tons wider. this pushed the axles too far apart creating a breakover danger for the t-case, and tire scrub would be a huge issues. also it would make the jeep alittle longer than I would want. DANG I want this to be street legal so 6 wheel steering was not an option. So we will have to settle for alittle les articulation and more drive shaft, thus the 205 is going to be put after the t-case and we will have both axles facing forward and more drive shafts with a carrier to get the rear to the rear.

    Last night we fabed the crossmember for the t-case and redesigned the suspension. First set back will be overcome.

    $$$$$ is no joke! I looked up the price of end yokes and there almost 200 a piece! And you don't even get a free toaster!
