Not Sure if I want to do this but I have a UTS can I put a tricycle front end on it. I assume you can swap one out from a regular U.

Yes you can do that but you need to switch the whole front casting. The front frame rails are the same and the radiator mounts the same. Jeff

Prsonally I would not change it but that is up to you. One thing I can say is, if it is a straight axle I have switched to the arched front axle. If it is adjusted correctly it will steer easier and turn shorter than the straight axle.

You also have to change steering box and associated steering linkage.

Why not go and buy a regular U? It would never look or ride right unless you had 38" rear rubber too. The steering and complete front end is different.

Thanks for the info, I think I am going to keep the wide front.
