Default This is cool

I had friends who did a lot of 4 wheeling in suzukis. My father in law has a piece of property up on east side of mount hood. Laws are being considered that would limit the use of the polaris 4 wheelers up there, to the point that they can't be used any more.

I think a suzuki rag top with a TDI/manual combo would be the way to go. There is even a covered area that we could leave it up there. It would be street legal, which is what you really need to have to 4 wheel up there once these laws go into place.

Thanks for posting Chris. Once I get the van/WVO and bio capability done, this will be my next project ).

I used a VW 1.6 TD with an adapter plate and mount kit from acme, the 1.6 TD is about all the power you can use, more would be really dangerous and of no use off road.

I disagree, I used the 1.9 IDI and it's been great. Stock gearing turns 33's on the highway perfectly and is a tractor offroad.
