I like the way the hood channels the water down and away from the driver

I have built a wide body buggy and I have to say I like it better for rock crawling then skinny buggies. The reason is becuase when you roll or are pitched at a severe angle the top tubes prevent you from either going all the way down or makes it easier to get back up on your own. Also it doesn't allow trees or rocks to get wedged in between the tires and body as easily. - Think about it.

Nice looking buggy so far, Lets see more!

Are the front shocks attached to the shackles, or does the pic just make it look that way?

And speaking of pics, how 'bout some more?

It appears to me that he has the shocks mounted to the shackles, and the front is a 4 link with 1/4(3/4?) elliptical set up, excuse my poor vocabulary.
