Default Rusted out tracker pos, trail rig.

Started out with this, 1995 16v auto




DD it until the rear gate started opening going around corners. Back was rusted out bad enough I had to have a couple ratchet straps holding it all together.

So got bored one night and cut it up, now I have this.




Got rid of the big box and put on a smaller one, I'm also mounting the lights in the box.



Tonight I'm dissembling a front and rear third member from a stick shift geo, lincoln locking them and then putting them in the tracker for the better gearing.

It's my first real white trash build and I think it's coming along nicely, with the cherry bomb and the stack it sounds like a fricken chainsaw when it's under throttle

Probably won't be much of a build thread, not going to spend any cash other then on tires maybe.

Right now it's on pretty whooped 31's, needs to change. 31"-34" 9.5 or 10.5 to hope to keep down on breakage. Sadly enough I looked at a set of deepV ag tires today, 33x8.5 lol weighed half as much as a similar sized bogger.

Bumpers of some sort of steel I have laying around, I have another set of rock rails from a ZJ they may have to be cut up.

Lights, not sure on cut down stock pieces or a couple of spots on each side.

Rear fenders of some sort,thinking about cutting up a set of trailer fenders

Body mounts, this doesn't seem to have them, right now I'm leaning towards the ever safe ratchet straps.

Welding up the extra set of third members I have and putting them in. Not at all what I'm used to when it comes to installing lincoln lockers, dropped out the third and can't even see then damn spiders.

Swap out the auto hubs for a set of manuals I have.

Should be about done then

As far as how it does, it seems to do damn well. Have played with it a few times at my cousins with no issues, can't wait for it to have decent tread and be locked. Figure I'll try to get everything done but the third member install before sunday.
