Well I found out that I wouldn't be able to get into the military until my epilepsy is cleared up, so I figure'd I'd try to be an engineer. Well with a program called Alibre express I have begun to design a new suv.

Everything doesn't look perfect, but considering everything was built from a 2 dimensional drawing, done from ideas in my head, i think it's pretty good for my first go at it.

Basics of the vehicle: Wheels are 22''s. Truck is about 170 inches long, about 60 inches tall and 72 inches wide. The subs are 12", and the speakers in the door are 6.5"s. If i can get accurate illustrations I'll finish designing the motor and transmission, which this truck will sport a nifty little supercharged v12 and a 6 speed manual so eat ur heart out lightning. :p

this is the basic frame


the sub box that will be built into the truck



the subs that go into the sub box.

Looks like somthing I could never do...

Looks cool. You think the v12 will actually allow the tires to hook up with the ground? ;)

the cylinders should line up. that program appears similar to Autodesk Inventor, which I am familiar with.

yeah the motor was fugged up but almost everything else matches up. I just need some really good drawings so i can do the motor.

It does look pretty good for your first try, but there is definatley room for improvement. But I have played around with modeling programs before to, so i know that its hard to get stuff right. I think that it looks to short in the back. IMHO, it should stick out more over the rear tires. And the wheels look a bit small on there, but i know scaling is hard when modeling. Overall its pretty good.
