Looking for ideas on a custom Cummins powered toy build !

Recommended Posts

OK Guys and Gals......Here is my dream.I want to start acruing parts to do a very custom build.What I want........A rig that can do all I like to do.I want to build a Cummins powered rig that I can do several things with. I want a Mud bogger / power puller / rock climbing off road tripping all in one rig. Want it to be a mid/rear of center mounted engine with a low center of gravity chassis. D80 rear D60 front to keep weight down versus rockwell axles.Now here is what I want from all of you..........Give me your ideas on how you would go about it.I am looking for ideas to get my project rolling, it is going to be a several year project to finish and will probably never be a finished project and will always be morphing.Should it be a custom built tube chassis or start with a frame chassis?Let the fun begin.:woot:Anyone with drafting skills more than welcome to help design a chassis to fit a Cummins, thinking of about a 650ish+ hp p-pumped 24V.

I would start with a rock race buggy design and scale it up. Kind of the creature comforts of a pretty runner desert truck on a tube chassis with ram front frame rails with a rock race suspension.

I am not sure if this is the rig but I saw one similar to it in Billings Montana a few years back that was along the same lines as this one that gave me the idea of what I am looking to build, if it is as ugly as this one even better.

He primarily used it as a Mudder but he had slicks on it with a 5 speed tranny and ran the 1/4 mile in the 10 second range and that was while being broke loose and sideways the first 300 feet of the run with smoke rolling off all 4 tires.

I don't know if that qualifies as "road trippable" according to most wimminz. :lmao:

Your mileage may vary.
