Well this gives me an Idea......................Find an old John Deere tractor seat and mount it on the end of that stinger. Shotgun can always have a seat then.

Put the rear on hold, gotta get a few things done so I can go do a shake down run next week.


Made my twin sticks today. I got a set of hand me downs when i was collecting parts but all they ended do was serving as a good visual reference. Only thing saved frim them was the actual handles.

Since my case was clocked up, the factory pivot point would no longer work so I relocated it up 3" and forward 2". I used some 3/8 ball joints and threaded rod for the links.



I am happy with how it turned out. Now I just gotta get out there and put it on.

Ditched the bushing and put in a heim joint in the anti wrap bar. Figured it was a good spot to carry a spare and should help my rear flex, or not hurt it.

Did some measuring on the rig,

Bottom of frame at the lowest point under the door area is 22"

Bottom of my door is 29", dont have rockers anymore, cut them off for slider.

Top of roof as good ad I can measure is about 75 to 76".

That is on 40" tires with 20 lbs in them.

I am happy with that. Gonna go out and fab a belly skid soon, then it will be pretty much ready to wheel.

That's about all tall as mine. You have a little ground clearance than me though. I'm sitting at 18" at the skid plate, and the skid sits 2" lower than the frame. But, I am on 35's.

Broke my front pinion yoke, broke my trans shifter, broke tranny mount off tranny, and had my tranny front seal sping a leak. Was a blast, should be ready to wheel it again by next week.
