Nice looking buggies....but for some reason all these Southern-style rigs end up looking like 70's Trans Am's with big tires....nice work, just not my thing.

Are you sure you need that much fuel between breakages?

internal is the only way, keeping that fuel pump cool by bathing it in fuel is essential to its life expectancy.

why do you care about the noise tho, I figured you'd be slapping some glass packs on this southern style rig

i hope it dont break much jim.going completely through the front before it comes out.everything is built strong and i braced the crap out of everything i can find.. 1"1/4 heims all the way through with 1" bolts.(the front heims are the good chromoly one's not ruff stuff)billet knuckles, all chromo shafts, 13.50 u joints,big ring and pinion,my case has 32 spline outputs.building my rear drive shaft out of 2" 1/2 inch wall dom.front shaft will be 1"3/4 1.88 dom. if the tranny and t case go then i will change it.will have new inner air locks in with some trick jiggler marked aluminum rock rings to keep 50 cents wheels alive.running fulley braced front and rear axles with air bumps front and rear. so i hope it all works.i am sure i will find the weak spots but this is built 100 times better then my jeep could ever be.
it will have a 14 bolt front axle in next year and maybe a steer 14 rear also.(this will be so i can keep up with cory a little)

You'd have to be under 5' to need that bar!
