Really liking how the skids came out, going to make it much more enjoyable on the trail. Got a forged yoke ordered, guess I should probably build some pinion guards?

So with the 40s, and ORI's at half travel. Its got a 19" belly, and 73-74" to the roof. So chassis is about 54" tall, with close to an inch in the skids.
Damn good looking rig dude !

Thanks!

It'll be for sale within 1-1.5 years. Planning on building a 4 seater once we get a new place with a better more equipped detached garage.

Should be ready to fire this thing next weekend. Everything is wired and tested, just needs to be loomed and tied up. Dash and all the paneling needs sanded then sent off to the powdercoat this week.

Buddy is doing a really nice job, everything is soldered and heat shrunk. Plus every accessory has sealed deutsch connectors so it can be disassembled easily.

Stole this pic off my powdercoaters FB page. Wiring got wrapped up Monday night, so hopefully tonight I can get the dash ready to drop off and have it back by early next week and get this thing done...

I'll have all the panels on it tonight, but I'll probably refrain from putting anymore pics up till its sitting outside done.

Thanks! Wasn't trying to be flashy, just wanted to do army colors and anything but black or silver.

Powdercoater calls it Old Army Jacket Green, its his own blend with 3-4 flake colors in it. Chassis color is called Mesa.

Somebody asked if I had 37s on, guess the buggy is kind of small looking. Lunch was at the Polaris dealership.

Throwing it on scales and dyno earliest of this Friday. Really curious to know the weight.

Only video I have so far from the day.

All the pics n vids my passenger got of everyone else...
