Off-Roadster Axles

This is part 4 of our Ultimate Adventure Jeep build. Yes, we took a brand-new ’12 Jeep Wrangler, built it once on 35s, then cut it in half and are building it a second time (read all about it in the Aug.-Oct. ’12 issues). Love it or hate it, this Jeep will get you thinking outside the box. We decided that a Jeep with front and rear steering axles (in our case, Spidertrax Spider-9s) should be able to weave its way through tight twisty trails with relative ease. And as you can read in our UA coverage, it did (page 50).

Last month we showed you how the HazzardFabWorx gang grafted the front framerails of a junkyard JK onto the back of our pristine 3,000-mile orange Wrangler. On top of that we started adding the fenders, grille, and rear hood for an out-of-this-world–looking Jeep with a trunk. We call it the Off-Roadster.

This month is all about axles and how to make them go together. The Spidertrax axles, True Hi-9 centersections, and some really cool shafts that we stuffed under this Jeep are drool worthy, both on the trail and on the shop floor. Read on and check back in next month, when we button up this wild ride.
