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

tragic accident with these small, black, slower buggies is a rear-end collision.

UPDATE!

Man, between work, work travels and the honey do list I actually found some time to get things going again...

New paddles!
I picked up a set of 30", 16 paddle Pro Armor paddles.  I'm eventually going to have a local guy shave them down.  He has seen 10# per tire reduction!  I also painted my bead lock rings.


I managed to get 75% of the car welded out.  Enough to get it off the table.  I kinda wish it was back on there to fit the sheet metal easier...LOL  In reality, I wanted to see it on the ground.


70 tooth sprocket!


I made a bunch of plate work for the shock and the bypass mounts on the lower rear arms.  There are a couple tubes to add to the lower arm before final welding.  Some corner gussets for the uppers too, I think.


I used the original fixture plate for the front, but shifted the pivot tube mounting locations out 3" to widen the front.  I will keep the shock angle and mounting points the same.  I will hopefully be able to cycle the front tonight to get an idea on travel numbers and final shock mounting locations.  I really liked how well the front did, so I want to keep as much of the geometry the same as the old set up.


I spent about 9-10 hours on Sunday making aluminum panels, bead rolling and welding tabs for said body work in place.  So far, I am really liking how its turning out.


I spent some of the time on Sunday making more body panel templates.  Aluminum shows up on Thursday so I can cut the rest of the body panels out!  She is getting close to powdercoating.  I will have a double firewall between my header and the seat.  I will be mounting my fuel pump and 2 fuel filters down low behind the seat, as well as the computer.  Dune Buggy Douggy is making me new front hubs to work with my 4 on 156 wheels.  Rear bypasses are on order too.  King 3 tube, 14".
