Hey Kawboy I know it's been a long time since you posted this but I have the exact same gator and would like to sone what copy your idea on the aftermarket conversion. Could you send me any more detailed pictures? Also did you ever figure out a way to lift the back end and add suspension? If so could you share? I know this is a long shot but please respond with any thing you might like to share.
Thanks,
Kyle ....
