I'm digging it as always...I like how you changed up some things from the FJ but it still has that M&M style in it.

Rear 14 bolt truss

Got the rear truss done. I will be selling these as a DIY kit. These are a nice way to tie in upper link mounts, and strengthen the axle.

Looks great as usual. Cool to see some different front clips on your chassis.

If you want to strengthen up a 14 bolt, truss it behind the axle. When mine bent, it bent forwards, not upwards.

Run a tube across the back from brake flange to brake flange, weld it to the cover, and use some internal tube clamps to facilitate removing the cover. Fill in with plate from the back brace to the axle tube.

Nothing wrong with your truss, it's a great piece. Just adding some input based on my own experience.

Rear truss

Crap........so now my axle is going to bend already?

Kidding man that's a good thought but I am more than confident in the stuff that PJ is building and IF it bends I have another 14b we can beef up even more.

Looking great PJ! Keep up the good work man. See ya sunday!

Bending

Thanks guys.. You are right they do tend to bend both upward and front to back. We have most of the up and down covered. However They tend to bend from the welded link mount out to the end of the axle when front to back so we put gussets between the link mounts and the end of the axle on the front face. This is not as strong as you are talking about but it is a lot less to get caught on rocks and strengthens that area up. It always comes down to strength vs weight vs clearance. Finding a happy medium that will work well is the hard part...Thanks for the input. Besides the part that bends needs to be cut off for rear steer anyways..LOL

Yep that's where mine bent, from the link mount outwards.

I doubt I'll bend another one though. Even without any back brace.

Rear steer??

Wow thanks PJ! Thats what I call a hell of a nice guy right there.......ya know with throwing in rear steer for free!

Maybe down the road but man but not right now. I know it's hard to find that happy medium but think you will do so without issue. I hear what you are saying Chris but this is not going to be a comp rig and feel that it will hold up with the way it's being built. If it doesn't then I may look into something even stronger. Thank you though for the input! The more the better.

Thanks,

Chris

It looks great and you can always put your own spin on it with paint and grill work. Check out the grill PJ custom
made for mine....I am going to put a red LED behind it so you can see it at night

Ok...now I'm jealous of the M&M cut into the plate in your frame. Although my grill is super sexy...you have a nice little subtle touch there

Well I'm back in Kuwait after a little break at home and checking out the rig. Those plates do add a nice little touch! It's not to extreme but the hint of the builder is a nice addition for those who don't follow along and know the work PJ is putting out. More pictures should be up soon as I talked with PJ the other day and he has more to show.

PJ is a great guy and so is the couple guys working for him. He spent plenty of time talking with me and going over some more plans for the build and I am happy he is building this rig for me!!

Sorry you didn't get those trick plates on your buggy 73 as they do make a sweet little conversational piece about the builder!
