We went to the Superlift Off Road Park in Hot Springs, Arkansas, Saturday and took my buddy's new rig on it's maiden voyage. He's worked on building this thing for the last 15 months. He worked on it almost every day after work and I helped him when ever I had a free weekend. Cris went through the guys at WWW.kryptonitekustoms.com and worked with them to design and build the tube frame and was the first designed there as a 4 seater. Once it was a rolling chassis, he loaded it up and took it home to his shop; where we spent the next year finishing the project. This weekends trip was the maiden voyage for the rig and it performed flawlessly, with the exception of a noisy bearing in the front Rockwell, which we tore into and fixed in camp.
If you go to the WWW.kryptonitekustoms.com site; all the pic's labeled four seater is Cris's and is the prototype for any future four seaters to be build and sold by them. Cris was able to save a ton of money by us doing all the work and only has around 40k in it. A turn key rig built by the company goes for around 80k.
The spec's on it are; The engine is a 2005 Fuel Injected 350, complete with the ECM and sensors. A beefed up Turbo 350 transmission with a manual valve body, attached to an Atlas Transfer case. All this is put to the ground through, narrowed 2.5 ton Rockwell military axles, turning 44" tires.
