Damn!
Nice work!
I couldn't see much detail on my little stupid phone.
The EPS conversion will be the same setup as your rail?

   rubyatiy  We welcome you here but I have removed the links to your BS that you inserted into Carl's quote. This is the only warning you will receive. Do not do it again.

For 90% of American offroaders, the SXS is prob a better choice.  The sign-n-drive, nationwide dealer  parts and service, and the aftermarket world for upgrades.  Give it a few more yrs...........

It's just progress. The new Yamaha is awesome.
Yes.

so a fella i know named jack has a turbo 2.3 rail he needed modified. he is about 6'3" and getting up there in age with some knees that dont bend so great so more. he needed more head clearence and a lower side rails to get in and out easier. so i finally agreed to make a few changes for him. the chassis was built by the same guy in utah that built dougs yellow turbo 2.3 rail.  also wanted me to add eps to it. so here are some pics of what i have done so far.

so larry short of short sand cars used to have a custom shaft made that was a  1.25" od, 10 splined but missing 1 spline. this was because he used a 4 link rear end with u joints and he used the u joints off the late 60's 2wd chevy's with 2 pice drive shafts. they had a dead spline to line them up. when i started building way back i bought the shafts from larry's supplier, zimmerman machine in utah. the shafts were 4130 hardened and no one ever broke those. now the custom stub axles he used that were quadzilla size shafts to run quadzilla hubs, were through hardened and he ran 12" dia wheels. those shaft were 1045 like most production car axles , then hardened. his stubs were 50/50 if they lasted lol

 i see on  g&g's site that the splined shafting is offered in   1045, 1144 and 4140. if protodie were smart , then they ordered all 4140. i bet there ordering it in 1045 as thats rated for high tq on ag equipment. the part people fail to understand when looking at ag tq #'s is thats all lower rpm.  to put this in perspective for those that have never driven a tractor......1500 rpm on a pto is pretty high rpm on the crank of an older diesel tractor.
