Thanks for the message back and offer to tank to me about the one you have.
I think I've just about decided to go with the one you have.
Are you liking it?
How's the build quality.
I have found out that Red Hawk does make a receiver hitch that works with these seat boxes.

Yes I like it a lot!! I really do think it will hold the weight you are looking for. Iam telling you, it is built very well and you could always mod it a smidge if need be. The darn thing is very sturdy...

That's what I'm gonna get. I'm just waiting on it to go back on sale on ebay from pro parts for $379.

you can fit 25"s on a drive with a Jakes long arm lift kit and doing some cutting. I use fender flares so you don't see the cut at all. in the end i went with RHOX 24x10x14's as what i consider a perfect fit on a 6" lift. The other thing to think about is width. the center of gravity is high on a 6" and 2" spacers on the hear make it much more stable and frankly looks better IMO.

I went with 23's to not loose as much torque from the engine. My cart is used at the deer lease a lot at low speed pulling, hauling, etc. The 23's are serving me well. The Maxxis Ceros are awesome.
You are right though. I could have fit bigger, but I had to trim some with the 23's too.
I went with 1.5" spacers on the back an that put the back about 1/2" wider than the front and it put the back tires sticking out of the finders about 1/4?

Setex,

Thanks for taking the time to document your build, it has been very informative! Looking at doing a similar set up with my next build. Had a couple questions for you....

1) Did you order rims with an off set? If so, how much? (I thought I read somewhere that a +1" offset was recommended for the Jakes Long Travel set up)

2) Did you find that the 1.5" rear wheel spacers were a perfect fit, or would you have gone a different route, now that you have installed them?

Thanks for your time, and look forward to following the rest of your build.

Cheers, Cheesy!

Thanks. It has been fun.

My wheels are ITP Hurricanes 12x7 (4 on 4 lug pattern)
They have a 5+2 offset meaning 5 inches of the wheel width sticks out from the hub mounting surface and 2 inches of the wheel width sticks in from the hub mounting surface.
So with that being said that would make them a very negative offset.
5+2 is the only numbers I have. I think that would make them something like a -65mm offset.
Whatever the number is, I love the width that it makes the cart.
The cart is 54.5" wide (outside edge of tire to outside edge of tire) in the front and 54.75" in the rear. They do however make the same wheel in a 2+5 meaning just the opposite from what I explained above that would make for a very positive offset wheel.

As far as the wheel spacers go the 1.5" worked perfectly.
Puts the tires even with my fender flares in the back.
The front tires stick out of the flares a bit because of the body design of the G29 Drive. The tires sticking out of the flares in the front has not been an issue with getting me muddy because of how far the tires stick out from the body.
All in all I think it's a perfect setup.
I researched for months every aspect of every part I put in this cart and it worked prefectly.

Let me know if you have anymore questions. I would be happy to help you out.

Here are some pictures so maybe you can see how these wheels worked out.

Awesome! Thanks for the additional info! Much Appreciated!

Sounds much like my last EZ-GO..... The fronts stuck out slightly, and I also used 1.5" spacers. This additional info will let me order all the parts at once, as opposed to installing wheels, measuring, and ordering wheel spacers after (As I had to do last time).
