Further Description/Back Story I’d fallen in love with the prairie wolf the second I saw it. I knew I wanted to put it on an element chassis and the gatekeeper wheel base was perfect for this build so that’s what I went with. I ended up using some heavy steel bumpers I had scaler fab make for me which worked out perfect. Turns out all that weight keeps the van locked in on side hills. It crawls really quite well!
