Parting Out 2007 Joyner Sand Viper 1100 Converted to VW Power

Recommended Posts

Hey Everyone,

I made the costly mistake of letting a friend of mine drive my 1100 Sand Viper a couple months ago, and ended up with a cracked frame. I was already planning on moving up to something bigger, so this was the tipping point.

I'm parting out what I have left. I had converted it to VW power (1915cc), so many parts have been modified to accommodate VW parts and may no longer work on your stock setup. If you're interested in switching over to a VW setup, I most likely have the parts you'll need and can answer questions regarding what was done to accomplish the conversion.

I'm located in San Diego.

Here's a list of what I have:

Suspension

King 2.0 Coilovers with remote reservoir (set of 4 with all required hardware) $1500. Details as follows:

12" travel

Primary spring rate front = 150 lb/in

Secondary spring rate front = 150 lb/in

Primary spring rate rear = 300 lb/in

Secondary spring rate rear = 300 lb/in

Droop = 40%

Drivetrain

VW 002 IRS Bus Transaxle set up for Type 2 CV's $700

Axles (custom to accommodate VW drivetrain in Joyner) $100

VW EMPI Type 2 CV Joints (2) $50

Wheel and Tires

2 x Swamp Lite Tires (Front, 27x9.00R12) $75

2 x Radial Reptile Tires (Rear, 27x11.00R12) $50

2 x Vision Buckshot Wheels (Rear, 15”x7”, 4/115 4 + 3) $50

Miscellaneous

- Starter (VW 002 High Torque) $100

- Full set of Gauges $20

- Fuel Tank (Spun aluminum) $50

- Chassis $50 (cracked where passenger side trailing arm connects to frame)

- Boxed Rear Trailing Arms $200 (these are much stronger than the stock trailing arm configuration and have been modified to accommodate the VW drivetrain)

- Front Hubs, Rotors, Brake calipers, lines, new pads $50

- Rear Hubs and Rotors (VW) $100 (note that the rear Joyner hub mount assembly had to be machined out to accommodate the VW hubs, and the rotors were drilled for the Joyner lug pattern)

- VW Disc Brake Kit for rear wheels $150

- (2) 15 x 7 Wheels $80 (Vision Buckshot Model, 4/115 4 + 3)

- Shifter $25 (Bugpack T-shifter)

- Steering shaft, wheel $30

- Light bar frame $30

- (2) Seats with Harnesses $50

- Aluminum hood panel $40

Let me know if you’re interested or have any questions. Feel free to shoot me a text at 843-597-0233 or e-mail me at [email protected] for more pictures.

      New to the Joyner community.  Bought a used 2016 1100 sand viper in descent shape. Only 155 miles.   Runs great.  It just rattles quite a bit in the front when riding on rough gravel / hard-packed dirt roads outside St Johns.  Removed front wheels and seems to be coming from both upper and lower suspension arm bushings/radial bearings (see pic); both left and right.  Seems like some play inside the eyelets - as I shake the arms a bit.  I assume it's not supposed be loose in there like that and the bushing/bearings are worn.  Anyone have had this issue and how did you go about changing them?

      We just bought a 2014 Massimo 1100 with only 27 drive hours on it. We took it out a couple of times and then the check engine light came on. We took it to an authorized massimo shop and they can't figure out what's wrong. Any advice?! We are in Utah.

      Hi Joyner Gang
      New to the Joyner group. I'm making long travel for the 1100 Sand viper. I'm trying to make something that will work as well or even better than the RZR Rino etc. At this time the front has 14" travel rear has 16" of travel. Still developing the suspension. comets are welcome. Ask questions and I will get back to the Forum

      I purchased my 2018 Cub Cadet 750 Challenger new in July 2019 and it will not go into 4 wheel drive.  Has this ever happened to anyone or do you have any idea as to what could be wrong?

      I have a 2016 R4 and I was about to load it on my trailer and the steering just broke I think. My front wheels are both pointing outwards. Does this mean front differential broke?  I jacked it up and got them both pointing in the right direction. When up in the air they work together. But as soon as I put back on the ground and move it a few feet they separate again.

      I’m not a mechanic so I don’t really know where to look for the problem and I can’t find a local shop or person to help diagnose the problem. I’m located in Southern California. So my Viper won’t shift into 3rd or 4th but 1st 2nd and reverse work fine. Can anyone point me in the right direction? Thanks

      I need help locating a rear cv style driveline for my early 2008 t4 trooper. I have broken 2 ujoints now and almost put a hole in the oil pan! I found one place but they wont return my calls. The mud season started and i got a big paper weight. Any help is greatly appreciated by me and my family.
