I do too, but must be the angle or something, doesn't look like much room in the front for a radiator.

Theres more room for the radiator than just about anything else. we'll see how much room I give up when it gets swaped to the truck accessories, everything should still fit. The engine will be mounting about 1" farther up in the chassis than where it is in the pictures.

The 4 pickups in the tank thing-

At an angle, extreme enough that 1, 2 or 3 of your 4 pickups are in air instead of fuel, why will the fuel pump pull fuel from the one submerged pickup, and not just draw air from one of the 3 "paths of least resistance"?

because they automatically close themselves as soon as they sense air on the pickup screen. http://apeusa.com/html/pickups.html

Well, Cedar Point was great! now I have to get back to work!!!

benny 87 came over the other day and helped me out so it's a little closer to getting off the table. It's pretty much there, I just have to cut upper links for it but I'm going to take care of some things like shock mounts, radiator mounting and finish off more tubes in the chassis before I pull it down just because they will be easier on the table.

It'll look like a lot of progress has been made pretty soon....

I'm going to use it and it's going to work.... it looks taller than it is, there's 9.5" of vertical seperation at the axle.

I was going for clean and simple. I dont want some fancy over done weird looking mounts welded all over the axle. The winch pulley is going to mount on the front side between the link mounts so when it's finished it's going to look the same as it does now.... clean and simple. There isnt really any good way to ger upper link mounts for a four link up that high without getting stupid with the material, as it is that completed upper hoop weighs about 20 pounds. The offset diff makes it more difficult.

Instead of just saying it looks like shit, what would you suggest I do instead? I'd like to keep the front and rear matching and there needs to be at least 9" of vertical seperation in the rear and 8" in the front.

I have to agree, it just doesnt look right on that buggy.
