Default Jeep GoKart? (powerwheels)

So my grandson is running the wheels off his 12v powerwheels Jeep. The creative side of me started thinking that it would be cool to have a more durable version of the battery powered Jeep. Anyone built anything of the likes?

The problem with what I'm thinking is the location of the motor in relation to the seat.

Good plan! It all depends on how creative you want to get.

Ultimately, anything is possible here and quite a few "jeep" inspired things have shown up here.

Seems like it needs some real tires first and foremost, instead of those hollow plastic jobbies.

Absolutely. My thought is to build a frame and put the plastic body on it. Only problem is that I don't think I can fit the motor under the plastic.

You'll have to cut a few holes.... But it'll mostly fit there...
