Got my collector made from a 1" thick piece of allum.
I drilled the bolt pattern and a 2" center hole.
Then with a die grinder I open the header side for each of the 3 tubes.
Got a 2" exhaust with a allum welded turbo type muffler.
Sounds great, now to see if it helped?

Fantastic!

I really did NOT build the Brush Guard / Dear Catcher nearly heavy enough!

This thing is a real Beast!
It came with 21"? tall 12" tires.
I have 175/70-R14 True Snow tires on it, bout 25" tall!

I now have 1/4" Cable holding up and back on plow mount, over cab and down to frame!
And a 125# suit case tractor weight strapped to the back side of blade!

Next Im making a set of 3" angle iron (same as my rear bumper) clevis tow hooks!
Basically 3" cut offs back to back an inch apart so you can put a 4" clevis through them both!
Im going to bolt a pair of them at the out side of the frame mounts.
Then a simple 5' piece of the 3" angle, a couple of short 1" sq stock 2' long, and the winch mount.

I have not decided on how wide but then bolt a strip of heavy rubber belting to the back edge of the angle as a cutting edge?
Pivot off the shackles and raise with the winch?
A simple set up and remove the hitch pin and it all comes off!

Sounds cool! There's a guy on YouTube who has a bunch of videos with mini trucks. He filmed going to NJ to buy one from the importer. Really neat trucks.
