Man I have to ask how you fit in this thing. I'm 6' 235 and the last time I sat in one it was pretty damn tight. I know your a big guy so just wondering. I've passed up a few 45's cause I couldn't fit so if you do I'll be pissed. lol

I got serious with crossfit and paleo diet. Weighing in at 202 lbs now at 6'2". But I have been more than comfortable in 45 even when I weighed 245

Well now that the Baja45 is "done" I am back on this project. Motor, trans and tcase are in. I started on the front end tonight. Look for a running and driving rig soon. Need some plumbing, steering and we got our selves a bad ass retro desert racer.
I have a though of modifying the stock fuel tank to a alltech type setup with 2 in tank walbros.

Got the "new" disc brake front axle built. It's a 40 housing, with fj60 3.73 3rd and fj60 outers.
