yeah some of those make me afraid to leave the house. It's always fun to search "monster truck" or "race truck" on ebay to see some aborted creations from all parts of the country. Dezertrangers.com has a 173 page thread devoted to crappy fab, I guess everyone in so cal considers themselves a fabricator too.

But let's face it, we've all done something that could end up in the booty fab section, don't be shy, show it off!

This little gem may still be cruising around somewhere in Alambama or Louisiana, I forget where it ended up. One lucky sould calls it his baby hahah.

That was such a nice old man truck when you started. Stranger Rocked. The Cherokee not so much I hope you have pics of the cable activated front axle.

yeah, built it in college with my buddies, it was a lot of fun for what it was- even though the 2.3 turbo only lasted 2 dunes trips. Rear end was super plush with ~26" travel until a flintoid stole my good shocks

dood, the cherokee was the ultimate booty fab, I tried to block that one out of my memory. It had a shady 4" lift with round tube spacers up front and blocks in the back, we hacksawed the lower control arms in the middle and re-plated them to bring the pinion angle back in line

A couple of my things that I see as booty fab.

A "Cold Air Intake" That I made for a freiend of mines Ford pickup.




A set of knuckles I made, planned on using as a kind of handle, but I didnt end up doing what I made them for. Now I think I'm going to turn them into a shift knob for the Toy.




A spare tire carrier for the Toy when I didnt have a bed on it. Trying to take up space so it didnt look so bare.





Dont laugh at it! It was all free material. lol


And just throwing this out cause I wanna know what people think of muh flux core welds.

I saw this while lurking Pirate...

Has anyone else ever done this setup? I think the extra shackle going to the twisty shackle is what makes this booty 'fab'ulous. It just seems unnecessary. Would the twisty shackle really make a huge difference when it comes to springs twisting?



On the drivers side it looks like the regular shackle is bottomed on the frame.



Other than that, this looks like a very nice vehicle. Just thought I'd say that.

You would think those things would bind up easily...who knows if they work or not, a non-poser articulation shot from the rear of the vehicle would reveal if they are actually doing anything

I've always thought that the buggy spring idea was cool where the shackle is attached to another short leaf against the frame that lets the shackle droop down further, kinda like an extra long set of springs. I like the fact that normally the extra travel isn't noticed as the buggy spring stays against the frame like it's bolted or welded.
Definitely would want a long travel driveshaft.

I've done plenty of booty-fab schytt, and plan on doing more!


its nice when you get to do it on a vehicle with a total end cost of about $125K, and get paid for it!






when I shortened the frames, I cut off the part with teh decal the read "DO NOT CUT, WELD, DRILL THIS FRAME" so it was all OK after that!
