Yep it is a "mule", Mine didn't look like that in it's original form. It was just a flat bed. The Military had problems with rollovers in 4 wheel steering, hence the roll cage. Now it will just go over on it's side. Jump off, and flip it back over. The bed and drop gear houseing are made of magnesium. Exhaust is made out of Titanium. I had a problem with trees hitting the occupants while in the woods, so I had the roll cage made. Then we wanted to go at night, so 2 32'' Led Light Bars were added.Then we wanted to pull out of the creeks, so I added the winch, upgraded this year, to a 3500 lb winch. I also added the pulley from an A-5 to keep the alternator out of the water while in the creeks. The engine gets air from a rubber intake hose coming off the left frame, coming up and out by the battery. Electric start was added. Push a button to crank. All powered by a 2 cylinder, horizontally opposed, air cooled, magneto fired engine, putting out 18 hp. Mine a little more, the bottom end being from the A042 Gen set engine. 300 miles on an 8 gal tank of fuel. Top speed, was listed between 27 to 32 mph. Mine will do 35 in 2 wheel steering. I had gotten tired of walking a long time ago, so this was/in the solution. I can out class almost all 4 wheel units in woods and water. So that's more of my "Stuff" The other 2 aren't as radical, as mine. Thanks for reading, I am just as passionate about my "mules" as I am with my Gt's. Both let me drive with a smile on my face, :yup:JarrellIsn't that vehicle what the army used to call a "mule"?
You can tell by looking that the steering wheel and shaft came straight out of a Willys jeep.
Looks like a fun ride!
