Just rolled it out this week. But several have done it along with a few friends and it works perfect. A little offset to the driver side but for a low speed crawler it will be fine.

Thanks man. I've got it at 116" right now. I like how it turned out so far. The tub and frame in the rear was trashed so this was the best way to fix that!
I used a peice of 2x4 1/4" wall above the frame for a cage tie in. I still lack the extra gusseting but hope this week I'll be done with that part. Then mount some shocks, fuel cell, wiring, rear disk. The list keeps going.

Yeah I suffer from the same thing. How did you mount you upper, lower links to the frame with the square tubing running arcoss the frame? I would like to do the same thing, but I want to use ruff stuff brackets and need the frame rail to mount them too. It seems that the upper link woukld hit the square tubing too early in the suspension cycle.

Thanks for the reply

Mike

Edit: Just noticed that you ran the 2x4 on top of the frame so I guess the upper links would have alot of room throughout the whole cycle.

I'm between ideas right now but currently I have some ballistic frame brackets for the lower links. Just welding them onto the bottom of the frame with some extra plating so I don't rip out a chunk of the frame.

Progress as of lunch. I got the lower backhalf complete, and Artec cell mount welded in solid. Did the two bars of lacing behind the seat, still have to do the outer two and the bars below where they tie in. That way it isn't a dead node. Thinking of trying to find a way to tie that bar into the frame as another structural tie in

Opinions welcome

Guess I will post a bit of progress. Got shocks in finally

I need to do some reworking to mount my airshocks. Need to in lard the top and build a tower to raise my top mount. 16s are longer than I thought.

When are you going to start a build thread on Pirate?

It's not really all that hardcore or fancy, hadn't thought much about it bud.

Didn't like the visibility being blocked by the poly performance kits dash bar, so I cut it out and threw it in the scrap pile. Since I can't really reuse the stock yj gauges, and the wiring harness was cut to pieces, I went ahead and scrapped it as well. Gonna try my hand at a simple flat dash. Added some console bars while I was at it, to mount the Art Carr shifter to. Got the bars from A pillar to the firewall tacked on as well. Then I pulled the cage to finish welding the underside.

I need some suggestions on the door bars. I really like the stock modified setups I've been seeing. Also like the simple bent hip bars. Just not sure which route to go.

Todays progress:

This is kind of what I was thinking on mine. I know it will be a pain to get in and out but I like the idea of being contained if I go over.

If you look at Dirt Fab's build for broadsword that's how he did them. I like it a lot as well. Also like how HOFF did DJ's bars.
