Those trusses are homely looking... I love it

Front links look shorter than what I'm used to seeing, but I've been corrupted by high dollar Pirate builds and have never built a linked suspension in my life, so I know less than nothing

Glad to see an update, thing is badass

Lol at the truss comment, I completely agree.

My first link build too but I think it will work.

Original plan was to go with coils, but I think I am going to get some oriís. This thing is getting jumped and haul ass.

You do Facebook? The clubs forum pretty much died out and we switched over to Facebook. https://www.facebook.com/BlackHills4...?ref=bookmarks

Trying to decide how to do the front end.

Or like this.



Seats I will be using. Will have some foam padding.

Know someone with a tubing roller to put a mild curve in the top of the front bar? Kinda mimic the 30s Ford grille?

No I don't know anyone. I think I will just go on with this style, it is just metal, can change it down the road if I want.

Budget build with coils to oriís. Lesson of the day, donít finish weld shit till you know you are done. Black boogers for the next few days.





6 more fully welded buckets to go.

if you are talking about going fast and jumping it no sure if ORI's would be the best choice for that. from my understanding they are more for crawling and trail riding and dont like going fast. id be looking for used or cheap coil overs
