I'm in for this one. Is this bash plate bullet proof or is it that thick because the engine produces that much torque and breaks the frame?

Thumb Bashful.

I like the thinking here, A bash plate that doubles as the mounting frame. Very effective.

obviously you are not familiar with her riding style

She (wifeypoo) needs a hack to tote the puppies around on some our offroad travels so we figured we would give building one a go .
Having done a little reading here and lookiing at all the other builds and what not , well......here we go .

This will be hauling our 2 pups for the most part ( about 200lbs of lean mean couch machines ) so it will be quite heavy . How that will play into the works is yet to be realized by me .

1.5 " .120 DOM main frame w/ 3/4 moley heims and 5/8 mounting hardware into 5/8 bungs on the 3/16ths skidplate

at this point we are still thinking and getting ready to mock up a car that will suit our fury friends so I have left the frame long with a bit wider track than we'll end up with so I can mess around and configure the outboard gear and generally screw around while we decide on the car .

I'm open to any ideas , thoughts, concerns etc .......as 3 wheels just aint my gig .

thanks ... not sure just yet . but will be tube and alum .

Gonna test ride this setup in the morning and start playing with car weight and arrangement and such .

this poor yz is the donor thus far ....I'll most likely end up using the front wheel and brake but for now just want to get a feel for handling and how this thing reacts as I'm clueless in that regard.
