Prowler XTZ 3.0 Build

Well, the cage has started going together. I had to scrap what someone else had built on it and start over.
It has 216ft of 1.75X.095 4130 Chromemoly and some DOM. Stands 65 inches tall when at 13 inches ground clearance. Wheelbase will be stretched 3 inches rear and 1 inch front when the new A-Arms are installed (+5 each side). The fuel cell is just sitting on the old chassie bed mount right now, but will be 10 inches lower when installed. I have to finish the rear suspension shock mounts before I can cut out the rear shock towers and install the cell.
The driver's compartment is stretched a little to accomodate the lowered seating arangement. Width of the actual chassis is very close to OEM, in fact, I will be able to use the OEM Floor and dash. The frame was cut down to just the 2 main tubes and A-Arm mount tubes. Everything from there up is Chromemoly except for a few non-critical tubes. The door bars will go in once we get the chassis welded up further.
I'll keep everyone posted as it goes..

Photos just show positioning of body panels and seats...

And I want to give a HUGE PROPS and THANK YOU to Johnny and Eric from UTV INC. Their help was awesome. Eric took my design and converted it to computer layout, then the UTV Inc crew cut and bent the tubes quickly and with perfect accuracy.
You guys ROCK!!!

Wow that thing rocks, is that how high the hood will sit? Won't that be hard to see over?

The hood will be down just a touch, but not much. You can see quite good out the front actually.
The new air cleaner system is going to be under the hood with a functional hood scoop. The Optima battery will be under the hood also. The front floor wall panels are interchangeable with lexan panels for rock crawling and KOH so that you can look through the front floor wall and see the tires. But for desert, sheetmetal will be in place.

Std A-arms in place...

You don't need to see if you are in front anyway.

*LOL*...true... and I plan on that. We are going to try and have the car ready for the Whiplash Snowflake race, then run the Fall AZ ShortCourse Series. Then next year will be a full BITD run.

My daughter (15years old) has already informed me she wants to take over it and race when I build my trophy truck...*LOL*..I'm already being replaced..

She would have faster lap times probably just cause she is lighter of course.

Thanks Johnny, your guys did great on the bending. I still need some large UTVINC decals to go on it. I may have my sis try to pick some up from you (she lives in Chandler) and bring to me.

You got the check right.. ?
