JGS's F150 IRS/IFS 4x4 sand truggy build...

Figured I'd venture outside the shop section to share the start of the planning stages of my next build...

F150 because well good models are available for pre-planning. But basically we'll just use the cab, hood and fenders.... maybe bed sides.
Exo-cage the cab and 100% tube chassis the rest.
Rear Engine chevy 5.3L Turbo to Ford C4 (done before) or Turbo400 then to the baddest transfer case I can afford or build and some 8.8 IRS diffs front/rear. Axles I'm thinking GM 1-Ton outer CVs for the rear and custom 300m axles. Front F150 outer CVs and 300m axles.
4 corner A-Arm 4x4. Flat bed cover with 2x Paddle tire mounts. On-board air jacks as well . Street Legal (no emissions), able to recover buggies and then go play [smilie=lmao.gif]

Gonna be a year of planning... Basically take all my buggy suspension designs and stick them under a truck.

Somebody going to talk me out of it? Its gonna be a buggy wearing an enough of an F150.
Want to get a model and start designing, the TubePro needs another job

All digital at this point! Learning how to work the bigger assemblies, finding out how much computer power I need.
I'll be hitting the 'yards for the parts I need as I draw.
I have a lot of designs to pull from that are already tested, makes thinks go faster.

Even if this 3D F150 model isn't 100% correct I can make adjustments to the design once I finally get a truck.

Progress...

I think I will slide the cab in from the bed side since its just a giant wedge. Have the bed bars remove-able like an engine cage.

-More interior room.
-Cab will stay more water tight with my plans.
-No plexi back window.
-With a big rig you do end up rubbing trees every now and then.
-Sand is just the main task, I'll be up for some other slower activities later.
-Our dunes are tight and crowded it might have to defect UTVs and ATVs depending on the idiot level of the day.

Also thought it would be fun to deco it like a big slow crawler/billy-jo-jim-bob got him self a tube bender rig. Only part of this plan that's going hurt is the shocks ... The front might do with 2.5s but the back ummm I'm not sure.

The bump limits of the hood give plenty of reasons to drop mount the front suspension.... I love it more as it takes more shape

Widened the flares out to 90.5" Tucking the little tires now.
Overall more progress, showing ride height in that shot.
Liking it alot. Like a buggy ate an F150 cab.

Would it be better to model it around some aftermarket wide-flare front fenders? Typical fiberglass desert-truck stuff. Would leave more room for tires to stuff, also...

Either way--subscribing.

I do want tube to rub against tree hazards in the oregon dunes.
I do plan on doing panels on top on the flares, maybe thin liners on the inside. I really want it to show lots of tube, being a tube pro demo example

Rear drive train layout, can't wait for my GM 9.25 diffs to show up tomorrow so I can start modeling it and building around it.

Can I play the computer design idiot for just a moment? How do you go about getting the F-150 design into the program...the 5.3...etc? The 8.8 looks to be scanned...which I understand, but the other parts look more refined.

Badass skills and just looking forward to watching it play out...

The LS model and 4l80 model are free from the rally fighter file you can down load.
The f150 model was bought from a 3D file site, $96. But its worth it.
The 9.25 I scanned with a kinect cam and kscan 3d. You need a fairly hotrod pc to handle these bigger models too.

Got that 8.8 scanned in and in-place. Then I realized I needed to rework the front bulkhead bars and plates.

There are some serious fender law around here. Wonder how it'll look with some skins on the flares.
