    I’m not sure what direction this will go, but I wanted to start a thread to document stuff.

    The end goal is something 4wd to take over snow plowing duties in order to give the 3b a break.

    Teardown on the engine donor has begun.

    Interesting, but I’m not sure a unibody would hold up to plowing :) :study:

    I’ll let you know when I know.
    There are two directions I can go with this. If the one I’m going to try first works, I expect my quitters club demotion will be rescinded. :D
    It’s going to take some interesting parts-merging to pull it off though.

    We took it out for one last beating before it goes non-op.

    We got a little too crazy on a jump and broke the radiator. :rofl:
    I’m just glad the airbags didn’t go off.
