Not finished, but close. It's gonna get some exo tube changes yet, and some appearance mods on the front end. Hood doesn't fit anymore, needs some cutting.

Current setup is 4.8LS/4l60e/205, 14" coilovers in the front, 16" coilovers in the rear, new 4 link and truss on the rear 14 bolt. Alxes have 5.38 gears in them with welded diffs for now. Added hydo steering, single ended ram with the stock pump.... Seems to work great minus too many turns.

Still needs skid plates, and seats/harnesses installed, and I'd like to put on the steel wheels.

Plan with this rig is put my stash of parts on it and make them work the best I can without much cash. The body is a little hacked up just yet, but it should be a stout rig.

Daughter is having fun driving it around, seems to handle everything she's thrown at it, and it stays cool without any running issues. Gotta get a vss installed, some guards for the transmission pan and the ram, some nice seats and harnesses and I'd like to get it out wheeling. Pictures dump of what I have.

Starting point to current. BTW, I did stretch the wheelbase to 107ish

Thrashed on it Saturday and got a skid plate made and put on, and added a bash bar on the front axle to protect the steering... Good thing too, because it took some abuse! My daughter drove all day Sunday for it first run at rocks and valleys and everything worked out pretty well, got it stuck a few times, but it drove itself back on the trailer. Only need to work on tire clearance, and shocks.... Its a rough ride.

So glad to see this rig back on the trails. From the videos it looked like it was working really good.

Anyone reading this stuff anymore? Seems like Facebook has taken over the forums.



Anyway.... thinking I should take off another week or so from customer metrofabing and make the tires clear stuff (they basically hit everything lol) and maybe try to make it ride better. I have about 7" of up travel in the rear but the valving in the shocks make it feel like 1. The front needs the track bar moved and reworked and now that it has hydraulic steering, I have the space. It currently has about 4" of up but I think I can can get it to 6 with a day's worth of work. I'd like to add my bump stops and maybe some proper limit straps too.

Then after that I'd like to work on seats and harnesses, maybe fix up the floors... They are kinda holey and rusty.

I like the idea of putting the customers stuff on hold an focusing on your own stuff for a bit
