I'm really excited to see how this comes out. You've got a great machine there and your customization is only making it better.
I don't have mine to look at anymore, but IIRC it touched at the outer edges and it just popped over the bar after lowering.The mounts raise the center over 1”but the top touches where the B pillar crossbar is. Being plastic it would probably flex enough for this to work. I am curious if the gen 1 top also touches at the top of the B pillar. That would confirm this approach. I am going to replace the crossbars with welded members that add some triangulation and take advantage of the curve to restore some head clearance.
Thanks. I am Definitely toying with the idea. If info comes out that 32s work ok with the CVT it is a done deal because I will need the extra clearance to compensate for a slightly larger tire.I don't have mine to look at anymore, but IIRC it touched at the outer edges and it just popped over the bar after lowering.
You kind of see it here.
Thank you. My plastic experience is limited, it will be interesting to see what I can do with the wedge area and overall plastic bodywork. Past work was mostly aluminum but I kinda want to keep most of this plastic. It is quieter and doesn’t transfer nearly as much heat. With the center mount drivetrain, aluminum panels would have to be coated and include insulation everywhere. The stock center console has quite a bit but fortunately none of the lower plastic had it, keeping this mod a little simpler.You do really nice work.
Stool with pedals is hilarious and totally accurate. They were several inches higher that my Ford Super Duty Seats!Well done!
I just checked out my first RMAX 2 XTR today and I hate the seating position!!!
I know its personal preference but it felt like I was sitting on a stool with petals.
The quality of the seats seemed nice though.
I prefer the sit-in feel rather than sit-on-top feel.
5’11”. View over the hood is fine. It is all relative. When you go wheeling in a Super Duty on 37s anything else seems small with great visibility! If you want to get an idea of what it is like pull the seat base and lay a piece of sheet metal over the seat frame and sit on it. That is what I did and immediately decided it had to be done.
