Thanks Joe! No, for now the bed is fixed. I might make it a dump in the future though, wouldn't be that hard. Mainly I kept alot of things fixed to minimize rattles and noise.

You know, the headlights are one place that I'm really happy I spent a little extra. The LED's are very bright, light up the night. Very satisfied with them. And it's great to have peace of mind that I'm buring about 1/3 the power of noromal lights.

Good tip on the U-bolts, and thanks!

Are you going to put a removable winch in there when out hunting?

Over all what a great job and thanks for the detailed posts and pics.

Appreciate it!

I've got a winch for it now, and had originally planned to mount it permanently. But then I got to thinking about how that extra weight, extra power draw, etc and I don't really need to for the ranch. So, that particular project is in the "maybe" column for the future.

I do have a little road feeder that mounts to the front reciever hitch. The controller is wired in already, which makes it very convenient to pull on and off.

Play Time

Alright, enough of all the build pics. How about some fun time pics?

By now the cart has been out to the ranch several times hunting and working, and Iím really happy with it. It allows me to creep around very quietly, and it works great for hauling deer and feed. I've had 400lbs of feed in the bed, and it moves it no big deal.
It goes pretty much anywhere, and has lots of low-end torque on the hills. I have taken it some places I probably shouldn't have, but the combination of good ground clearance, tihgt turning radius, and lots of torque makes it a good little off-roader.

It's also working out great for hunting. It is quickly earning a reputation as a meat wagon as it allows us to go retrieve deer without having to drive a truck in and ruin the spot. I have driven right up to a few deer at night with the red LED and they just stand there and look at me.

If there is anything I regret it's that I wish I would have ponied up for the Long Travel lift kit. The kit I have now is quality, and holding up just fine, but the ride is pretty rough. I also had to get creative to solve some squeeking and creeking. I took a plastic bicylce tube, cut it flat, and sandwhiched it between the cart frame and the front suspension carrier. That greatly improved things.

Here are a few pics of the cart in action:

Nice action pics, good to see you're enjoying all the hard work you put into it. As for the stiff ride, check out Streetbu's thread. He has the 8" version of the same kit and modified the springs on the front to give it a softer ride for pretty cheap. I'll be doing the same modification once I get my project up and running.

I am doing a top to bottom rebuild on a 2003 club car DS. How did you get the accelerator off?
