Rigs looking really good
thx D Boz. i traded a guy here on pirate for them and dont remember what he said they were,by comparing them to the website i believe they are premiums. at the widest point (shoulders) they measure 22.5" they rub on the B pillars (targa) as u can see in the pic. one could always move them in a little more but with my center tunnel the way it is im in as far as i can go. when i first built this zuke i put mastercrafts in it that were amost identical except the mounting points. what a world of differance in weight u couldnt hardly lift those MC's with one hand but these PRP's are like lifting a half rack of beer,super light weight. i just figured i would put the MC's back in since they were mounted on tracks already but when i felt the weight diff i couldnt put the MC's back. stuck them in the wifes jeep dont care about the weight in that thing

this is how i mounted the passenger side.dont care if that seat goes forward or back

Nice build I like it. Hardest thing about any build is not putting or leaving parts and tools in the tub Makes it a PITA to find later or have to clean out all the time.

i F'd up and found that i had the top springs for the front and back at the wrong end the 120"s go in the back and the 125's go up front. couldnt figure out why it sat so much higher in the back then in the front.thought i was gonna have to order lighter springs. my ride height was 3" taller then i wanted,had to crank the front springs down to get it to set level.problem solved though

mocking up the links and such,used Trail Gear creepers with the 5/8 through bolt on each end,gotta love pvc links.ended up using some tubing i found at the scrap yard for links.i think its DOM. it was laying on the ground in 20 ft sections,5 of them.its seamless and has a wall thickness of .30 its not dark like DOM but it looks like it has been on the ground for awhile.tried to bend it but there wasnt a hyd bender in town that could budge it.ended up borrowing a pipe bender from a fencing guy and had to heat the tube to get any bend out of it at all.didnt collapse it at all.ended up cutting those links off the front anyway.bought the tubing at scrap weight,paid 200$ for all of it


this is what i ended up with for the lower mount,sorry for the crappy cell phone pic.on the top of the mount are some holes im gonna run a tube through to mount to the frame to stiffen it up.the tube is 2" DOM with .250 wall so it shouldnt bend


this is how the upper link mount came out,its all 1/4" inch plate.only have this 1 pic. frame is plated with 1/4" wherever i had to weld a link mount to it.the upper link is missing a brace that i later added but dont have a pic of

this is what i ended up with,not sure if its good or bad but any comments good or bad would be helpful. can adjust the lower links up if need be and the upper links can go up another inch.

love the build mate. Very nice rig and clean fab work
make uppers adjustable on the rear?looks similar in the pic to what mine would be like now since i lifted it as the squat was terrible and a huge mistake. i still think i could have gone up a fraction more at the frame end of my uppers.

sorry double checked pic showing adjustment on uppers also.

nice, i'll have to look them up.we dont have any dunes here close let alone a dune buggy shop so i will see what i can find online. i have to measure to see if i can get a full size light in there without the tire hitting it or them being partially behind the bars. thx
