Thanks Dave!

I went ahead and linked the front and put SAW racerunner coilovers on.

salmonfacesalad the Little Raisin's tow rig




It still needs seats, hi-lift jack, and other jazz but it still got tested out today. more pics later.

the front leafs failed and did not hold up to my abuse, I'm heavily considering linking and coil-overing the front to take abuse.

salmonfacesalad more progress, I cut too much of the red off the sides plus the lexan is too thick and warps but it will do for now.

Hey TJ and Ben if the real Raisin is sponsered by Pitbull Tires any chance you guys could convince them to make a 1.9 rock beast!!! they make a 2.2 but thats way to big. I know its a long shot but I had to ask cause I'm considering putting on the TTC style MT Baja claws on this rig only due to the fact the are a very wide and fat 1.9 tire. The Irok is too skinny.

atwill Awesome, thanks again TJ for all the help!

Well my portion of this build is drawing to a close. Soon it will make it's cross-country journey to it's owner for finishing.

All taken apart, spent a couple hours reinforcing all the spot welds. Also started adding all the body mounting tabs. Still gotta grind and sand all the welds, and a few other minor things.

HomeGrown the roof and hood are aluminum. the hood is warped in white vinyl. and the roof is bare aluminum with a giant marlin sticker on it. let me see what i can find for a side view.

atwill Thanks Tj, just heard back from my buddy doing the side graphics. He said he'll be going on those next week. Which brings me to another favor Tj. Do you guys have any pics directly from the side? I need good pics of the sponsor decals so he can reproduce them. Also is the roof and hood aluminum, and is it just bare? Again thanks for all the help on this project.
