Ok here it is. its a little smaller than i thought so that means finding things that well fit like the rear axel and the front axel its only going to be 2wd so i just need a rear one. so on with the photos.

as you can see the rear isnt very wide ita 5 1/2" from inside the wheel well to the other wheel well. thats why i need a small rear axel.

This is going to be one heck of a build if i can pull it off. the transmission well be in the back along with all the elects and battery. i plan on making a plate fro them to sit on and the box well be screwed onto that plate from the bottom. well thats how i want to do it.

I love the idea! You know, some semi axles might look better? Leaving the front so it is spindle only should be easy for you.

WHY DON'T YOU GO WITH A GEAR DRIVE LIKE JEFF HAS IN HIS PULLER USE 1/4 ROUND

FOR REAR AXLE SOME GEAR A MOTOR MOUNT BUILD IT ON TABLE FIT IT INTO TRUCK

MITE BEABLE TO USE THE REAR WHEEL SET IT UP FOR SPEED NOT FOR PULLING,IT WOULD BE EAZY.

Jim, aka 6x6_BigDollars, has eye problems, he can't see the screen very well.
He writes in caps so HE can see what he's typing, he's not mad/shouting.
In PM's, it's helpfull if you change your font-size to "huge".
