Any more pics of the tie in from the A pillar to the frame?

Will the A pillar be gussetted to the windshield frame and roof like the B and C pillars are?

Like the buildup so far, looks cool.

Are many people desert racing with C4s? I know I have seen a few race trucks with 302's and c6's and 302's and TH400's but I can't remember seeing a C4 in anything but a 7S ranger?

I'm not saying it won't work at all. I'm only asking because I am building a multiuse buggy with a C4 and I am afraid of braking planetaries in the desert type stuff.

Racing MDR/SCORE/ having fun in the dezert

Its based off of a 9" and we did most of the work on it, all lazer cut parts.

Our 302 is very much stock so a c4 will do fine. Most ranger prerunners run a c4.

The a pillar will be tied into the cab cage very soon.

Front

10 up 10 down

Rear

13 up
15-16 down

The clearance should be about 10" bumped out at the lowest point of the truck. The departure /approach will be good for going through the nasty steep shit.

All about exposure and getting stuff out there. Good to put input into other things. You need to come down with Evan over summer or something

Fwx or Perrys is best, Maniak's quality lacks. But we got a great deal on it being used, but new, so couldnt pass it up

Looks sweet I raced the a ranger for 9 years with some buddies won vegas to reno in 97 class 7 open .My buddy has a whole fiberglass ranger excab body one peice frontend in brentwood Ca. up north .Call him if interested @925-513-0676 Awesome fab work only thing I see you might want to change is the Lowrance position more in front of co-driver out of your vision as a driver It will distract you .On raceday your a driver and thats it not a navigator !another thing we did in our truck was made it so the driver and co-driver had in car and the codriver only had radio communication to the pit crews less stress on everyone

Fab-
Thanks for your input. We've been happy with the GPS location running that location in our old truck, and also our co driver/fabber's old truck. Also its nice to be able to see the GPS as a driver as sometimes. As far as radio communications, all 3 people will be included in the intercom, and all 3 can communicate out. Keep in mind this truck was built for having fun, prerunning, chasing, racing, Glamis etc. We will run headsets when not racing and going fast. Its just a fun truck that can be comfortable anywhere. Will have the windows in and all when its drivable.

Heres some more

We're all 5 10 or smaller, and fairly thin. Live in Socal. VORRA's a long drive for us, but it looks like there are some cool venues up there.
