Default My sons S-10 mud bogger build

So I told my son for Christmas he was getting a bogger of his own
so this is our Farther/Son build

I forgot to take pictures before we started But it was a rusted Full size chevy. I got a 98 S-10 cab from PA few weeks back, has a new 4" rough country lift 3/4 ton axles (dana 60 sooner or later)

My Son David grining the rivits on the spring hangers so we can shorten the wheel base





Cheated and didn't feel like makeing all new mounts on a Bogger so I just used some 2x4 square tube and welded it the factory body mounts in the front then as all bogger cab get abused I used 1/4" plate above and below the floor to displace weight accross the floor so it wont fataige the metal and throught bolted it with 6" long grade 8 half inch bolt



Axle is moved forward here (108" wheel base)but not welded, I still need to cut the frame where it goes from 6" to 4 and bends up. so the finished frame will be strait and 6" the hole way, then


future plans are Built 350. 12.5 to 1 compression, steel crank, world sportman II heads, preditor carb...parts are here need to get the block machine work done, th 350 or 400 mated to a 205 depends on what I buy.. Still need to buy a front clip, and that will be comp cut forward and bunch of sheet metal work to make it look nice so it will damm near be a flat fender...rear mounted radiator and fuel cell, and a 8 point cage to keep him safe

more pics to come

that was brought in from the horse barn for the new puppy (black spot on top laying on my grinder) to chil on and new barn chair...it has to stay, plus we were in the back of the rig not the front... and we havea hose and fire extiguisers in the barn all over, if it cought on fire it would be funny and laughed at...

Damn looks good. I grew up with the wrong dad..

My dad can't even change a set of wipers by himself.

Always loved the s-10's with fullsize frames...but only if done right! Which you are. Ive seen a LOT of trucks with stacked frames that look like hell.

My buddies, His barn also
Mine has another frame off resto I am painting for another friend, that is slow moving as we don't work on it much in teh last month...

To that S-10 I am building a 4 link front... I have allready cut the bed down 11 inches and going to comp-cut fender his fenders like I am doing to my son's. In fact it was Rob's Idea asking me if I could cut his fenders and make them look Good, what started out my remakeing the factory wheel well opening body lines to just a bit more at which I said I can make it how ever he wants..then we sat back with fine line tape and makeing out the opening to him takeing more and more out of the body to lower the truck down but still clear the 44" boggers.. so its getting comp cut in the front and wheel wells in teh rear getting streached open and raised big time just haven't desided on the shape yet

Rear end with the curv cut out and new frame section grafted in so its all flat pull points and cross members made out of 2x6x.25 suported the frame with a 2x6 riped in half and welded in teh frame between the crossmembers...
the rear behind the back will be cut down more and flush mounted later on THe rear buckets Wont be used I will make new shackel mounts above it later so the spring is the lowest point so Rocks can't grap them











the Biggest Change is to save money I have now desided to stick my Scramblers 401 in his S-10 and buy him a set of 1 ton axles and 44's and later on build his Checy motor and reclaim my 401 when the Jeep lives one day

this is just mock up as every thing will come back out and get painted, exspecily the motor it hasn't had paint on it for a while and the out side is starting to rust even sitting in the garage on the stand, I also need a good or new oil pan for it as it has my old pan with a JB weld trial fix from a rock bashing
