The foot doesn't look fun especially if it's round 2 because you know what you're in for. I had a knee scope in Sept. Month off. 2 meniscus tears and some other squishy shit that was growing where it shouldn't be that was affecting nerves.

Put me way behind in my build.

Can't wait to see mockup with the body at ride.

Ya, I did those both of mine back in 05/06. They say they need to go back in but there is no squishy parts left after the last time so I have just been ignoring them for now. Both of those have to go through the VA too so it will be 15 years before anything happens anyway.


So working on finishingup the sub frame, got the middle crossmember in and looking at the tube I need to add. The pic is what I am thinking, but not sure if it would be adequate or not. Wanting to leave as much open in the middle as possible so I can get to the trans pan for maintenance or anything else.

Thoughts???

And I drew that freehand on my phone so ya'll

Edit: Sub frame is all 1.75 .25 wall Dom if that matters to you.

Looks good to me so long as the tubing you weld in is straighter

I wish, sitting in Dr office waiting for my appt to find out if I get my stitches out today or not. For the love of God I hope so, they are itching like a mofo and are about to drive me even farther off the cliff.

This is my hell week at work and I start my 7 off Friday, hoping to get back to it some over that time off. Going to try and get the harness cut down at least.

I wish. Got the stitches out Monday, and we got hit by a wind storm from hell. Still have tons of people without power around us. I just happen to be close enough to town that we got ours back already. Spend allot of Tuesday cutting downed tree's, and then Wednesday kicking myself in the ass for doing it. Still a little too early to push it. With the hollidays and the work schedule, it will be the middle of next week before I can even try and get anything done on it.

I have not gotten anything done on it yet, was finally fully released from surgery this week, and the daughters rig has taken up residence in the garage until the middle of next month. Got a few things I need to finish up the rear shocks and fuel tank on hers, and I am not going to pick those up till after getting back from KOH.

Ya ya ya, whittling down the list of crap that somehow got in the way of getting back to it. Planning on having it sitting back on its axles by next week. If I keep repeating that over and over in my head, it just might happen.

So I finally got the garage cleaned up this afternoon and was able to make some progress on it this evening. Before I had my surgery when I cycled the suspension I was worried about drive shaft to link clearance on the front end. I had been contemplating having to cut the C's loose and rotating the pinion up some more to get some more room. After getting the front and rear back under the frame and playing around with it some more, it seems that I can just move the lower link frame side mounts out and get all the room I need. I had them set pretty close, about 3.75 out from center. If I move them out to 8.75/9" it leaves me with a little more than 2" of clearance at full droop. It also moves my roll center up 2" and drops my under steer from -3 to -2. I have to order a couple tabs to do it, and should have them in by the end of next week. Will see how it works.

Got a little more time in on this the other night. Got the front lower frame side mounts figured out and then mounted the drive train back in it. I then started trying to get the wiring harness finished up that I started on in December. Trying to work over a wiring harness while all hopped up on pain pills and wobbling around on crutches is not a good idea. I got it sorted out for the most part, but then realized I was running really low on decent crimps and heat shrink so I got some on order and called it a night.









My anniversary is next week so I wont be able to get to it till the week after. Planing on setting the tub back on it and figuring out the lower mounts and everything as soon as the harness is finished up. Need to get that figured out so I can start looking at the cage and where the upper shock mounts are going to be located.

Slow progress has been being made. Had a bunch of stuff come up that took the garage space and time foe to much to get done. I did get the harness finished up except for the fuse block section, waiting until I am ready to mount t before I finish that section. Also ordered in the radiator, and then had to return it and order a different one. It was supposedly delayed during shipping due to a late trailer. When it got to me, it looked like the trailer had rolled down a ravine.











In this one you can kind of see that it was twisted end to end





They were pretty good about the return though and covered shipping it back to them, why they even wanted it back though is beyond me.


This is the second one that showed up. Fits prefect for what I am thinking.

I then started looking at where the body is going to sit and got it set back where it would have been stock. This is with it sitting on 3" block in the stock location.



and then I attacked it with a 4" cut off blade and the plasma cutter.





I need to pull everything back off the frame so I can flip it over and finish up a few things before I can go any farther, but just wasn't feeling it, so I just took the time to fill in all the little holes in the firewall this last weekend, I will try and get my ass motivated enough to get the frame finished up in the next week-ish.

So whats the plan? Are you lengthening the body or shortening it? Or better yet.... flat bed?

Removable/replaceable skins. Will use the ones that came off of it for now, and scrounge some other ones latter and hide them so if I beat one up to bad I can change it out.

I did pick up the material for the new rockers/sliders, and decided on where I am going to cut it for the boat sides too. Just not anything I can sow on that. I did allot of the staring/drinking/thinking/planning for it this weekend, just didn't actually get allot of the physical labor done. That and I ran out of gas for the welder early Saturday.....

I hear ya. I like the skins idea. That's what I'm leaning towards for my "fenders". I'm gonna cut the original fenders up high and fab some Metal Panel style fenders. If I beat on them pretty bad, I just replace them with a new set.

Nice build. I was surprised to see the back half, was that the plan all the time? After cutting the back half off did you move the body back or is it sitting in the stock location? I may have missed it earlier but why the 4 link front, most guys seem to be doing 3 links with builds

Thanks.

Yes on the body panels, I wanted to be able to change them fairly easy if they get bashed up. In the Pic's it is sitting in the stock location, it might get moved forward a little bit when I go to actually mount it up, but I haven't finalized that decision yet.

I went front four link because it seems much easier to me. With 3 link you add extra variables with the track bar and its swing arks through travel. It also seems allot of people fight with the upper link and torsion or binding allot also, going 4 just evens everything out and simplifies it to me. This being the first 4 link I have done I did learn allot. The rear was simple, went pretty much right together, the front kicked my ass for a while and I had to change allot of things on it from my original thinking to get it to work, there is just allot of shit in the way on that end.



Update, no pics again.

I did get it stripped back to just the frame and flipped over. Finished up the sub-frame section and got it shipped off to be sand blasted and primed Friday. Its being slid in on a hook up so I wont get it back until this next Friday, but for the price I wont be complaining about it. I still need to add gussets to the link mounts for the front, I just ran out of time to get them done before I had to get it loaded so it could go and I went back on shift, but touching up the primer will be easy.

Its not looking like much will happen again till next month anyways. This month is our spring outage at work, and as it stands I have 4 days off between now and the first of May. I was told to expect to be asked to work at least 2 of those too. Good for the wallet and parts fund, but not really conductive to working on your own junk.

Was able to get a bunch done on it yesterday. With the frame gone I was able to get to a bunch of the little stuff I had been ignoring for a while.

Got the gussets done for link mounts on the axle ends finally.
