    I'm starting a tube buggy build. I have a family of 6 and want a rig that everyone can go on. Has esnyone ever seen a 6 person rig? Would the extra length kill my performance. I live in Florida now so hills and big rockdt are not going to happen. I do go play in the mud quite a bit but don't like all the deep water treading mud holes. I would like to take the FAM on some vacations to more mountain states to have some fun. I would appreciate rant advice.

    what length/wheelbase are you going to end up with?

    I've seen many capable 4 seaters, it just depends on how much longer you plan it :)

    Wheeling in the country in summertown tn is a great place to ride. Check it out on the web.

    If your looking to use 6 seats your probably looking to have 126" of wheelbase roughly. You need strong strong parts. I would suggest devorced transfer case. Rockwell 2 1/2 ton axles, and some massive engine power. And with that long of a wheelbase you are going to need as big of tires as you can fit under it.
