Thorson built the 47-inch-wide chassis from 1.75-inch-diameter, 0.125-inch-wall DOM tubing. The body skins offer an added level of protection from the Tank Trap’s poison oak and they’re made from 14-gauge steel. As you can see, the buggy has incredible ground clearance as well as approach and departure angles. The big 54-inch Mickey Thompson Baja Claw TTC tires help with that and they’re mounted on 20x12 Stazworks interior beadlock wheels with exterior rock rings. Mounted very high in the chassis is a front Warn 9.5xp winch and 8,000-pound Warn rear winch. Exterior LED lighting includes a pair of Fulkerson Fabrication forward-facing driving lights and six ground-facing LED lights to light the way during night wheeling.
