Wow awesome build! I noticed you said you put 75-90 weight gear oil in the rear. My book tells me sae 30 on my 03 club car ds. Does the older cars call for 75-90 gear oil? Thanks for any info....

Spring- Yep, days like that a top would be nice. That, and the hot Texas sun is going to motivate me to get a top of some sort by next summer. BTW, who's Brandon? Is he known for building golf cart cages?

Holdnon- I'm pretty sure the spec is for SAE 30 on the DS. But, 90W gear oil is definitely what came out (could tell by the smell), and my local CC shop says they like to run 90W as well. I suppose it's because it gets plenty warm down here. I liked the idea of a "gear oil" in the axle, and my thought is the 75W-90 synthetic won't be much more viscous than traditional 30W. These rear ends are fairly low-speed, low load so I can't imagine it would make a huge difference either way.

It looks like the topic has been thoroughly debated here on BGW in the past!

Wish we were a little closer, that's what I do for a living, bend tubing. But I've never done aluminum only stanlass steel and I'm not a good TIG welder.

I noticed all of the debate on rear end oil as well but I think (for what it's worth) if your going to be out "rooting around" in the woods like we do and not tooling around the neighborhood it couldn't hurt to go to a heavier weight oil.

Thanks for showing us your build. I have been working on mine and would like to know the part # for the Monroe front shocks that you used. Thanks

The top AND the windshield keep the rain (and bugs) from hitting you in the face/eyes, especially at night. I, too, am "topless' but keep several pairs of clear safety glasses on hand for nighttime driving. Also helps when caught in the rain for the mad dash to shelter!
Great build. Enjoy!

I'm still stock right now but just ordered all my goodies. Cart currently has top and full rain gear that has saved us many times when we went on a like hike from the house and Florida decided to be Florida. lol... Other then appearance is there any reasons for keeping or removing the top? I really wanna keep the rain gear with the kids and such and Florida being so unpredictable but is there a down side?

Storm,

The only dis advantage to the top for us is noise! I would say the comfort it provides for the wife and I far out weigh that little inconvenience.

Now come hunting season its off she goes. That plastic makes a horribly loud sound in the dead of morning when it hits the trail branches...
