74"? I think.

The buggy is 77" at the roof. Good thing the roof isn't the length of the buggy

Looks nice, but if you are tight by 3", you will hate airing down or screwing around getting in and out.

Here's hoping it fits.

In/out shouldn't be an issue. The buggy is 77" tall from center wheelbase to roof. That height won't be seen at the door of the trailer. The buggy is 14' end to end which is the tires. I have zero approach departure. The roof is 4'? Long at the center. I won't hit 77"s tall till already clear of the door. The trailer height inside past the door is 80"+.

If it doesn't fit, then I already have an offer to sell it for what I paid.

Well, changed the spark plugs in it last night . Hoping to test fit the trailer this weekend.

I did just order up some 2.25 Aluminum bar to make into rear lower links.

Thinking of replacing all my gauges with some auto meter procomps. I currently have cheap summit brands and not sure how accurate they are. Esc the voltmeter.

Also need to come up with a better way to have 4 coolant sensors.

1 ecm temp
1 temp gauge
1 lo speed fan
1 hi speed fan

The current setup isn't working the way I want it to. I don't think the sensors are getting a good reading off the coolant due to setup.

I took a factory ford pedal and built a bracket to attach it to the buggy.

I think it was an explorer or ranger pedal in the beginning.

John, on my turbo Ranger I used a fitting off a 2.3 mustang/ranger that goes in the heater hose line for my ECM temp sensor. You could snag one or two of those and put em inline on a loop from t-stat housing back to the water pump.

First time taking the sides and seats out. Man was it dirty. Funny how the side panel bolts on the passenger side were all jacked up. But the bolts on drivers panel were perfectly fine

New spark plugs did the trick, fired right up.
