the front looks wicked! I'm glad you decided to chop up the 90 rather than go with a buggy. It's gonna be kickass.

The frame was a piece of cake...It was the rear tub that was the hard part...The whole first cut was hell...I kept hearing voices in my head saying..."You FAWKING idiot!"

Finished the grind and prime on the frame-rails this a.m. Looks stock now (which btw, was the idea with keeping the same sized frame-rails)...

Then I (gulp) cut one side of the bed off (like SR's), and did a test fit to the new rails...Fit a little tight, but made it like a dream.

I've decided I'm going to bring the tub-cap's together like this \_/ looking at it from the top...I think it will clean up the back end and make it a little more unique. Everybody, and I mean everybody has the straight cut rear tub...I think the straight cut WITH the taper is gonna' be trick...And I can keep the bed outa' the rocks too.

Sorry, I didn't have the cam today...Today was a big day...I'll get it goin' on more pics next weekend, when I'll finish cutting the bed, yank the tail-gate, cut the rear fender-wells' all the way out, and push the 70 under it for a wheel-base measurement.

BTW, rough measurements show that I can EASILY get 114" out of it...If I want to get...Er...silly...I could push 123" and still have the axle under the end of the rear x-member. Of course only the WMS boy's run that much wb...But think of the ledge climbing possibilities!

Absolutely fawking sensational.

Jeez Doug your rig is gonna be the shit



How far in front of the rear of the rig are you gonna run the rear axle. Also how far is the front going to be behind the front of the front fenders. Im just curious as to where your gonna run the axles compared to mine.

Easier still - how far are the tires going to stick out the front, the rear, and the sides. Mine are 3in, 3in and about 9in.

Went for a drive on some trails today and the grip the 42s have is incredible. On a couple of ledges and step ups where I previously had to use a fair bit of momentum (say 3000rpm in first) I just idled (and I mean idled - I couldnt go slow enough). Doug, you are gonna love them 42s.

COOL!

Sam,

Still haven't decided on the the WB I'm going to run...Like I said in the previous post I can easily get away with 113" wb. That would mean that the front tires would be out approx. 6" and the rear out the same. I think I'm going to shoot for 107 - 110". To be honest the 113" "looks" right front to rear.

The tires stick out (sides) about 10" each...With the added track I'm effectivly reducing my CG by 4".

I can't wait to get her rolling!

Looking awesome Doug!!!

Can't wait to see that thing together and on the trail! Are you going to cut your existing rear tub to fit over the new rails or ditch it in favor of a tube set-up with just separate panels hung on the outside?

Also, since you're ditching the steering gear to go full hydro are you going to just mount an orbital valve where the current steering box is?

That thing is going to kick some serious butt by the time you get it done!!!

Right now I've cut the rear tub...Cut it just below the end of the body panel radius. Then I plan on notching the top of the bed-cap's and slanting the whole panel inwards towards the center of the rig...They should end right about were the frame-rails meet the x-member. Then I'll cut and break some alum sheet to cover the now humungous wheel opening...I'll tell ya' the 42's look small in the new wheel opening!

I don't have the orbital valve yet...Should have it this week or next....Then I'll decide were it goes. Probably right under the master cylinder.
