How is the single spring set up working out with the coilovers?. What length are you running? Is it really soft. I was just wondering. Mine is a little tall and I am running 16 inch coilovers and am just a little to tall still. Nice build too.....amazing.

I don't have the uppers i need yet is why it's only got one spring.

Worked on dash braces today along with some more gusset welding. Even took a minute or two to wipe the dust off and and vaccum it out. Got most of the parts rounded up as it's been awhile since i'd worked on it. That took some time. LOL

She's gone

Well after 4yrs on and off and 2 different build directions, i traded it off last night. Thanks Ryan(triplexj), hope you enjoy it. Keep the build thread alive. I hated to let it go, but i'm also glad to see it go to someone with plans of finishing it. OH, ryan, i pulled my girlfriends son around today with the RZR and he rode from one end of the farm and back at 20mph with grin a mile wide.

Thanks Allen, have fun with the RZR and here are some pics at the shop. The thread will live on, and I only hope I can do you and Tims work justice..

I can't totally speak for Ryan but I think he wants to pretty much take care of all the major nessesary stuff first that will get it out and wheeling. He has some great ideas planned for the overall finish work and mods he would like to incorperate into the build.

Some ideas I've heard so far are:
-build in some sort of sheet metal dimpled bed floor
-possibly see about hanging bedsides back on
-mount the grill and headlamp buckets
-make a front bumper/winch mount
-finish out the interior
...and so on.

After speaking with him about getting/finishing this up and knowing how his last project looked when finished I'm sure he won't disapoint. I'm stoked to get to see this in our part of the country let alone help out with it, It's probably one of the sickest Toy builds we've seen.

here are some more pics from today. I spent most the day sorting out parts and just plain cleaning. I had a blast... thanks again Allen...











as for my ideas: stubby crawler bumper, the battery will be mounted on the driver side next to the fuel cell, on the other side will possible be HiLift, and or spare driveshaft? what do you think, any Ideas?

"It's probably one of the sickest Toy builds we've seen". Keep him going and don't let go the wrong way on it. LOL Are you the friend he was telling me that is going to help?

Yeah, I am. He wanted me to ride with them out to pick it up but I just couldn't get away. He called earlier and he's pretty excited about it. I've watched this thread since the beginning and like many others I think the concept is bitchin'. Lots of great ideas on this, clean lines, and not over done. I just hope we can materialize all his thoughts and finish this build to the degree that You, Bent Fab, Ryan and the Pirate board have hoped for. And don't worry, I'm sure Ryan will keep it very well documented.

Tim, nice to see ya on. What did you use to keep the heat from the engine off your legs in your buggies. I wanted to use something inside the engine bay and maybe a thin carpet or something clean inside. any suggestions? The headers are wrapped but I bet it still would burn ya inside..

I really haven't had to use anything on the firewalls, it just doesnt get as hot as people think. But if it is getting hot, try some of this stuff.

http://www.jegs.com/i/JEGS+Performan...32032/10002/-1

I've used it on the bottom of the floor pans right above the muffler to keep temps down under the seats. Works great. Couldn't hurt anything to just line the whole doghouse with it. If there is a particular point that is seeing a lot of heat, build a shield out of aluminum and stand it off of the inside of the doghouse with a half inch spacer in the affected area... And that goes for any hot area on any buggy. People overlook simple heatshields more than they should.

-Tim

Thanks Tim, I will definitely cover the doghouse, and possibly the floor. I will add some sound deadening(not alot), my goal is clean, and as stock as possible. for what it is... lol I can't wait to really get to put some of my flavor in it.

Just last month I lined the dog house in my buggy with some of this.

http://www.summitracing.com/parts/DEI-050503/

It would get so hot you could feel the heat through your shoes down by the peddles. If you were wearing shorts and hit the center console it would burn the hell outta you. The beer holders are built into the console right over the tranny and my beer was also warming up while in a coozie.

Lined the panels and it gets no warmer than if it was left outside on a warm day. Works well.

Sam's link looks more like the stuff I was trying to refer to.. I thought the price looked too cheap.

TripleXJ...
I see that you finally picked this thing up, as that was a nice RZR you had. I was the guy (w/the lifted silver 06 tacoma) who bought the Toyos from Rob awhile back. I would have liked to BS more that night, but it was too damn coooollddd outside!!!
If you don't mind, I would like to meet up on a trip w/you guys to see this thing in person...pics never do these things justice. I don't have any pics of my junk on here, but it does alright out on the trails.
Take care, Chris
