Know the feeling my rig is so chopped up now I'm starting to wonder why I'm bothering trying to retain a body.

Sounds like a firewall buggy would be a perfect compromise

if you cant decide if you want a buggy or not you will never have the drive to finish one once you start

well, the last few parts of the runner that i decided to sell are on their way out. ive purchased my donor car for the buggy last week and have started tearing into that one as well. if all goes well ill hopefully be bending tube in a few week.

its been fun, but this one has come to an end.

new build thread will probably be in gen4x4 since its not really brand specific, so keep a look out.

So the runner is no more? Bummer! You'll have fun with the buggy though. What else do you have for sale?

Will be a two seat transaxle buggy. Flipped 14 bolts front and rear 5.38. Engine/tranny will be a saab B204 and a F55 transaxle. Thats just the basics.

Awesome your building a steering 14 bolt. I'm kinda moving toward building one for my runner instead of blowing a grand or more on a stock dana 60 right of the bag. Looking forward to your new build

I'll be using my current D60 front for parts. The big reason for the 14 bolts is because I'll be running then upside down and because of the transaxle I need an almost centered diff, so I'll get high pinion and not have to mess with oiling too much. Thinking about the TG seals. Well see how they are.
