"Chopped and Screwed" Build thread

Figured I've been on here for a good while and never started a official build thread. Ill start from the beginning and work my way to where is it now.

I picked up my Viking in mid July 2015 when it was all cute and stock.


Used it a few times when It was stock but new very quickly I wanted to change some things.


added a JBL radio and two 6.5 inch waketower speakers.




Then the roof was added. Im not a fan of the sun in my face when Im wheelin.




Added a SmittyBilt winch and KFI winch plate






Decided to snorkel the CVT (this is version 1.0)

Added the switch panel to get everything all wired up nicely.






Did a little 20 hour maintenance




Did a little wheel upgrade. 27 inch Mega Mayhems on 12 inch ITP steel wheels.


Along with the wheels I also added the strongmade 3 inch lift. Set on the 3 inch mark.




Bent a tie rod. I pulled it off then sleeved it and put it back on.




Next I added some safety harnesses.




I ripped an axles boot so decided to added a beefier axle.




Next was the cage shop which I already have a big thread on








this is basically where it sits now. I have added the tail Lights back on.






In the next few weeks I plan to cage the front pillars as well.

When you put the fan on your cvt is it pushing or pulling air?

I sent you a PM back. But for everyone else is pushing air thru. I plan to actually modify my snorkel setup but the fan will still be installed pushing air. its worth the 20 bucks and couple hours of wiring it up to do IMO.


I'm buying a new angle grinder today so I plan to start on my front cage after work possible

Basically like this rhino has. add cross bracing and triangulate it.

I'm also thinking about tieing in the cage to the front bumper like this.
