samurai buggy.....code name HAMMER TIME !!!

Well i started out with this......




A $300 84 yota with an 85 title that i got to run good and added some parts....

Added a propane kit from craigslist $250....(best purchase on craigslist yet)

4.70 t case gears from trail mart....

Welded the rear end up....and beat on it.....

That led to a blown motor and the purchase of this on craigs list.....$250





supposed to have had a 22r...w56 tranny and dual cases already installed and rolling on yota axles....guy lost interest...some decent fab work tho...

So i started to tear down the yota.....



Got the frame up off the ground and rollin on yota rears up front.....

Got the rear springs set up....ford rangers turned around and outboarded off the samurai frame....still need to set the rear shackles up but will wait til later...my buddy helping me giving everyone the pirate hello....



Finally got the motor in and tacked into place....made the x member out of 3/8 plate and was able to get it basically a flat belly






The reason for the build thread name "Hammer Time" is because i am leaving for koh in about a month and plane on having my buddy who owns Whiskey Bent Fab in Mesa,AZ bend a cage for it and then wheel it out in AZ and hopefully the hammers.....So the time crunch makes it a lot more fun....

Thanks man....this is the first go around at building something from basically scratch....should be a lot easier trouble shooting problems, especially while on the trail...probably won't start bending tube til next week....

had some time late tonight to do some more wiring and make a simple place to mount my gauges for now....




not sure which ring to use for the gauges...if you get bad ass jegs gauges like me then you can choose silver or black the red light is just tied into the main power...

might try and bend some tube tomorrow on the holiday

You named it HAMMER TIME and there's no Radio in that rig blasting the mighty MC himself?

WTF?




Oh, and if your really gonna "hammer" on it you'll need a TACH, too!

your right i will need some jungle drums

and you dont need a tach in indiana....i believe the proper term is "she aint reved til the rods are thrown" (drive by truckers) ....plus who needs a tach....just use valve float for a rev limiter....
