This may be a moot point but...

Is your trailer hitch receiver directly inline with your gas tank? If a hitch is over inserted or you forget/break a pin(pretty unlikely) is your hitch going to punch your tank?

I dig the panhard mount.

Yes the hitch is in line but I added a piece of flat bar to protect the tank. Left it open on the top and bottom for drainage and mud removal there is also a 1/2" between the receiver and the tank. Here's a couple pics of it.

So this is what I came up for to solve my problem with the cross member shifting side to side. Made to simple half round collars and welded the to the factory cross member, nothing to extravagant just simple. Also welded up the new solenoid mount.

Everything tore down for final welding and paint. Got my girlfriend to help clean and paint both the bottom of the cab and frame, It's going to cost me. Still waiting on a few Items, hoping to have the body back on by Tuesday or Wednesday.

Not going to be done by thanksgiving! Work has turned into 10-12+ hr days, 7 days a week till the Christmas hiatus but I'm hoping to have it ready for a New Years day trip.

Have manage to get a few things done though, got the drive-lines back and everything clears the 1410 u-joint. Ended up going with the spicier non-serviceable joint. Changed the clutch out for a spec stage 2 unit while I was at it. Also finished the engine cradle and got the engine, transmission and atlas installed. Things are coming together but now a lot slower than I originally wanted.

Works let up so I manage to get out to the shop and start some assembly. Got the front and rear torque tubes and driveshafts mounted. Everything clears and moves freely.

Got the rod end spacers machined and installed the new track bars. Fit awesome and look great. Also thought I would post a teaser pic more to come soon.

Also manage to get the shifters installed really looking forward to driving it now, this trans shifts so smooth and no more reaching for the gear levers.

That looks very nice, but doesn't it feel weird to be shifting next to you instead of in front of you (well, not directly in front, but you know what I mean)?

Still, very cool Mog!

i can only hope to build a mog like this someday. Seriously sweet fucking rig man. This has 'go anywhere and do anything' written all over it.

I'd build a mog way before a buggy. Maybe it's just the snow that get's me but that thing looks like a blast.
