Buddy's crawler buggy pics...

We went over to my buddy's shop today to finish a quarter elliptical on my friends 4runner and I decided to take a couple of pictures from the front of this buggy that my other buddy has. If that makes any sense. It just looks really mean. On 44x19.5x15 boggers. My friend is 6'- 6'1 so that show's how big it is. I'll post up pics tomorrow of the quarter elliptical.

That's awesome but either that axle is tiny, or the tire size makes it look tiny.

yeah it's not complete... He just threw 2 tires on there. The front is only a built d44 full width. The rear is a built d60. It's only a 22re motor so I'm not sure he will have any problems with axles. His plan is to switch the axles but for now he's leaving them. He's not sure if he wants to run the 44" boggers or 40" ltb's. I think the coolest thing about it is you expect it to have a powerful v8 and you hear it and say, wait, that's only a 4cyl. haha.

Doesn't matter how little his engine is those axles will snap so fast. That is really really small axle.

It is all about the gearing. If he has a low enough crawl ratio, it will still be snapping **** left and right. I hope he ordered extra output shafts, axle shafts and ujoints. But oh well, you have to work with what ya got.

yea?

if he has low enough gears to turn those tires.. then he has plenty of torque to snap a d44 shaft..

Look on Pirate. Everyone there are running built 60's on anything over a 39.5. There is a reason for this. Rockcrawling is a massive load on your vehicle. Those might hold up in the mud, but on rocks, say goodbye. Not only are those tires tall, they are super wide. This equals a heavy tire, which equals a bigger axel needed.

I will enjoy seeing you call bull**** as axle shafts are wizzing past you on the trail
