You and your family are little people. Your buggy, not so much. Having another kid or 5?

This is still 5" narrower in the center, and about 10" at the front and back, and its abuot 5" shorter from the bottom of a stock body to the top of the cage. So aside from me stretching it its smaller than a stock bronco....sorry I fail to see how its SOOOOOO big. This is not meant to be a competition rock crawler.
it is built so a taller person can still ride or drive, my last buggy was tiny. this one is big enough that someone 6' can still ride in it and have room for a helmet etc. If I built it so just my family could ride in it it would be pointless, and I would have to listen to you cry that you had no head room when you went for a ride so on you!

Dont forget the seats are basically low backs so it makes it look alot bigger than it really is.

Actually, I think that's exactly what is screwing with me. Just finish it already and then I will pick on it.
Beer in my shop tonight BTW.

No new progress, this is an old picture, I added a spoiler type of look on the back, that will house the rear lights.

Damnit....that's so much like what I had in mind it's gonna look like I copied you!! I love that look and have something very similar in mind for my cage. There'll at least be a few tweaks though. Looks great, keep it up

Nice! You won't have to worry about me copying that, I'll still be running a windshield.
