I would love to come down to Harlan someday, it is more of a time situation than a money situation.

chrischabre Thanks man! Ive put everything on hold with my 78 as my shop needs to get finished up. Money just hasnt been there this year. I still plan on most of my previous ideas, but I think Im going 3 link in front on coils, and Im up in the air over my 460 or a 12 valve...Otherwise Im hoping to buy my tubing for the frame and cage by spring. Everytime I walk in my barn my boggers and beadlocks call out to me haha

I really wouldn't change anything, other than taking more time when I first started building it. I would have built more of my own brackets/ for the front leaf spring mounts and made it more "clean" looking, but to be honest, when I started building this I really had no idea what I was doing. I would have done the cage different, and maybe made room for 5 occupants. I learned sooooo much from building this truck, it is the first thing I ever really built. The truck works quite well for a full size leaf sprung truck on 44's. I really have not come up on many obstacles that I had very much trouble with. It can do almost all of what the cool buggys do...and it is always the crowd favorite.

AllGoNoShow My mind changes daily on what to do with the truck, might just keep it the way it is.

No I can not switch back and forth between pane and gas.

I have 2 33 lb tanks. They last from a few hours to all day depending on how far and long I push the pedal on the right.
12-09-2014 10:27 PM
hasteranger What size tank do you run and how long does it last? On your rig, can you switch back to gas? I saw a car set up like that in Ukraine when I was there. I was told it was very common there.

Wmarcom x2! This thing is an inspiration. I need to get my ass in gear so I can start wrinkling some sheet metal. I'm sure your firewall buggy will turn out nice, but something about that old cab and bedsides makes my pants feel funny.

Single mixer. It works great, only thing that I don't like about propane is that you can't just pull up to the station and fill it up like you would gas. Other than that it is awesome. Compression is probably around 10 to 1. I bought my propane kit form Cary at gotpropane too. You will be happy with it, works great right out of the box.

AllGoNoShow Thought I would add a little update, I have not wheeled it since June. I plan on taking it on a Halloween trip. Plans for winter are to chop off the cab, build all new cage work with a big bench in the rear, thus making it a 5 seater. Think fullsize firewall buggy. I will keep the front fenders/hood/bedsides intact if possible.
06-11-2014 10:48 AM
AllGoNoShow Thanks guys, I tied the front truss into the front diff before the run. I also welded the doors shut, and installed my hand made copper drink holders. The drink holders "snap" the drink into place at the bottom, you could roll onto your top and the can would still not come out. You can also unbolt them from the rig and use them as koozies.
