After years of wheeling his YJ, from stock form to fully built, Les decided a trail buggy was the next natural progression, so a Tribe Trail Buggy was born. Big motor, automatic transmission, low gearing and axles built to handle 40″ Maxxis Trepadors were on the menu.
Vehicle Owner: Les Scott Vehicle Year: 2015 Objective: Comfortable trail car with strength and power to handle 40’s, all the baddest trails the US has to offer, and maybe perform a smokey burnout or two.
Spidertrax was the obvious choice in axles, stuffed with 300M components this rig is ready to crawl or fly. A GM 6.0, TH400 and AtlasII Transfer Case motivate the buggy, and provide plenty of power to spin the 40″ Treps on Walker Evans Bead Locks.
Custom Tuned Sway A Way Coil Overs and Air Bumps help keep the ride nice, whether the action is fast or slow. A big cooler and a tool box were necessities. There is plenty of room for both in the back of a Tribe Trail Car. Skinned with the actual grill from his previous Jeep and a loaner hood, Les sticks closely to his YJ roots but gets full tube buggy performance.
7075 Aluminum Lower links control the suspension while a tie rod made from the same material partnered with a PSC Full Hydraulic kit take care of steering duties. Custom HIDs in YJ style light housings and a 10″ Rigid Light Bar handle any explorations after dark. A custom narrowed Warn winch is nestled down low in front to deal with and recoveries that may arise.
As a Texas Native Les has wheeled all of the big parks we have in this great State. He and the buggy have also been on most of the hardest trails in AR,CO,OK, and UT.
