I am shooting for before the Dunes trip...will that happen? Probably not, I don't think I have the funds to keep up as fast as we work.

We have too much to do....This is something new to both of us....so I can not say it will be done right...but it should be....if not there is a torch and a welder to fix it

Man, that is the one thing I *DO* know very well is atv's/utvs. It had the same engine mine does now...I've torn it apart several times now straight down to the case...

All the frame and suspension is just like a truck except IRS and smaller...

I would say zach is the smart one lol.

He has helped me out a lot with the tube work, all that math crap and what kind of tube and other possibilities we could use.

I have done some research on what I want, what I need, what kind of stuff I need to use. But there is a lot of crap I need to learn that I had no clue on.

Zach knows his Stuff, without him I would not be doing this.

I know a lot about ATVs/UTVs (hell I work at a place and am in tech help with them)

But this is nothing like a RHINO. All that will be stock is.....the main frame rails (which will be modified) maybe some steering compentents (which will be modified)

We are even making our own A-arms with Heim ends


Edit:

BTW this had a 660 engine in it....notice the dangling carb lol.....I gave up on trying to get the cable out

Hahaha. Nice progress on the Rhino though. I hope it turns out somewhat like the ones in the videos I've seen.
