Hi,

that is a lot more than I thought it would be. :)

Are you allowed to cut the chassis and replace that curved section with a right angled/dog leg to bring the wheel further under the body.

             Chassis can be cut shorter to fit but I’m thinking there’s enough chassis for a custom duel drive axle?

Interesting build there Yella, A huge job but it sounds like Hendo is there to help and not hinder.
It's a shame you cannot reuse the moke suspension so that it will feel like a moke to steer and handle.

How are you going to fit a V6 under the bonnet?

I wouldn't of thought shortening the chassis would be a problem, see a few around with that mod and longer of course.

         most six wheeler mokes I’ve seen built are front wheel drive only with lazy axles on the rear, I’m thinking a custom duel drive axles on the rear.

                            GOOD NEWS       
         
           Have come up with a plan for the rear. Using a complete Ford diff assembly.  Duel drive option is out as the cost is enormous to certify the ADR build as a ICV, compared to a modified production build.

Hi,

make sure you hang on to the badge, you want to keep something of the original Moke. :)

Hi,

I am assuming the circle bits go over the axle which looks to me like you still have a lot of metal hanging out behind the body.
