I remember a thread a few years ago where a guy made a cool Mini-Jeep.. think it was for his daughter. One of the neatest things (at least I thought so) was his steering set up. He used the head off a Dewalt Grinder as the steering box. That modification alone.. has rolled around in my head since I saw it in that thread. It amazed me.

Go to www.instructables.com and do a search for jeep. A guy took a riding mower and turned it into a really nice mini jeep.

I was trying to find info on something like this.
Long story short, my buddy owns a powder coating shop, and his buddy brought this thing in

I'm obsessed
I thought it was a kit or something like that, but it's one off
https://www.youtube.com/watch?featur...&v=h5Ah6vuit8U
And from another site I found
",Its got king shocks,lj 20 axles and transfer case,27" tires,4 linked,disc brakes and the motor is out of a trx 300 quad.Its got a 5 speed automatic with reverse ,and has 2 and 4 wheel drive with 4 low and 4 high"

Still looking for a build thread
