That 4 wheel steer jeep where did you take that pic? Pretty sure that's in cali..

Nicest jeep I've seen is Geralds I don't have a picture but I'll take one and post it up.. Just from the raw capability of it.. Seeing that jeep up close just demands respect.

Not saying it's a jeep but it's no less of a jeep than the rock buggies you see all over King of Hammers and the factory fabricated "Jeeps" that have nothing in common with an actual jeep other than the fiberglass custom molded body pieces that are molded to look like a jeep.

Just an opinion I think it's an interesting idea if nothing else.

back to topic I love the Cherokee Chiefs and +1 on the J10 from twister (I think that was the movie)

Is that pic of the yellow jeep at the bottom of jimmyzzer's original post (page 3) from the 2010 Beach Jeep @ Daytona? I watched a video you Youtube and it looks like one of the jeeps shown in the video.

Will be keeping an eye on this thread! I love seeing some tasteful rigs!

Thats not a 4.0

That looks like a small block chevy. I can see headers on the passenger side, and lat time i looked, a 4.0 had the exhaust manifold on the drivers side.

I"m going to go look but.. I'm really fairly sure my injectors and intake are driver side with the intake going over the valve cover and resting on the passneger side fender....

You're positive the intake is on the passenger side?

the intake is on the driver's side, but the exhaust manifold is too, directly below it.

It's not a Jeep, it didn't start out as a Jeep, and it shares nothing in common with a Jeep other than the fact that it's used for off-roading

Quote:
It's chain drive to all 4 wheels.Built it all himself on his garage floor
It does things on rock that no other rig can do but it's too heavy to compete. The owner says it's only 5000K or so, but I see 7000 to 8000 lbs of steel there. It is truly a monster. You will all want to see video of this thing in action. Today it suffered majot problems, but this was the first time out of the garage.

Each wheel is independently controllable like don robbins rig but with no axles he get more articulation than any solid axle rig can. The delta between front wheel is about 6 to 7 feet! Seems to have a little less travle in the rear, I only saw about 5'. I don't know it might have been able to do more.

On the lake been it lowered it's nose and rested the engine on the ground, they lifted both tires up two feet off the ground. Then it dropped it's tires back down and lifted the front end over 4 feet in the air.

Both wheels on each side are connected to a double jointed lever arm.

It also had left and right drive, he could drive both lefts and or both right tires. Or front tires, or rear tires.


He calls it the "CHAINLINK". He literally just finished the rig and drove out to the competition without any testing. I have personally watched the construction of this rig. I saw the rig when it was one axle and the four independant arms. When I first saw it I was skeptical. Then I saw it two weeks ago when he took it for a spin around the block. Cameron is truely a unique person with a wild imagination and has even a greater vision. He showed me erector set prototypes and I still did not get it at the time. The "CHAINLINK" is truely an awesome rig. I know Cameron is already thinking of ways to make it better and stronger. Expect to see more.

My hats off to Cameron and his "CHAINLINK". You are truely a visionary. The Rock Gods bow down to you.





"Drivetrain layout is like this:
SEFI 5.0 w/ GT40 heads (paid something like $50 for the whole car)
C4 with stock gearing
D20 (right side output) with front output removed and case shortened.
9" with ARB (broke the ARB either late Sat or early Sun)
Chains enclosed in the swingarms
HMMV reduction/Portal boxes"
