Forty-War Hundred - Ultra4 Dodge M-37

Getting going building this for a friend. Basically a 4400 buggy with whats left of a 50's Dodge M-37. It is being built to pass Ultra 4 tech but have a cab for our shitty rainy winter wheeling in the PNW. He was going to do early Bronco skins but I talked him into this for something different, and because I had one sitting around forever that I have wanted to build but probably will never get too.
Specs -
- 2" Main chassis. Framerails are 31" wide, rear of sliders about 70" outside
- Mast LS3, 6l80, Ford 205
- Spydertrax front with Mega 9, Torq 40 spline rear *Now 10" front dropout*
- Bilstein 2.5 coilover/ bypass front and rear, Ruffstuff trailing arms rear *Now 2.0 Fox coilovers 3.0 bypasses*
- 42 Iroks / Stazworks, or 42 Trepadors eventually
- 115" Wheelbase
- Gutted cab and front clip
How it sits as of tonight -

First time I have gotten to use the table I built, man it makes it nice. Its an old road plate, 5x10 1" thick. Drew a 24" square grid on it to drop a plumb bob which has been great. Tacked square tube to the table to locate the framerails. Started everything off the tube across the rear bottom of the cab. Second set of Ruffstuff arms I have built, man they go together nice. Chopped the top off the 205 so his head isnt sticking out the roof.

Trailing arm mounts done. Maybe got a little carried away on them.

Overall view without the cab. Guess I didnt put a shot of the trailing arms done so here it is - about 11 hours of welding in the pair. Cut 4" off the bottom of the doors and cab, basically the thickness of the rocker boxes. Freakin stink bugs came pouring out the bottom as I was cutting them. And one of the dog helping out with the build. The 14 bolt will be going away when the new rear gets here in a month or so.

Got the sliders and tie-ins built. It will get 1 more at the front from the junction of the upper and lower frame out to the slider. I needed to get the cowl situated to figure out where the front of the sliders will get cut at. Probably tie it to the tube for the a-pillar where it mount since the sliders are so far off the frame. We were going to narrow the back of the cab and lay the windshield back but leaving it alone means a stock soft or hard top will work with mods for the tubing to run out the back. This pretty much brings it up to date, gonna try and get the cab section of the cage done this weekend. Its a side project so no sure how often I will update it.

WOW! I appreciate the pain...we're doing something similar with a Defender cab so that we can manage the bad weather and legal requirements!

Thank you! Be starting a new one within the next year. I've got the itch to build again, I'll be keeping the weather out as well...

Keep it up corn.

Fab work is clean. Really like how the sliders turned out.




I know nothing about trailing arms but holy cow that's a lot of welding!

Love to see something different, and nice fab work so far.

What's up with the grand Cherokee in the back ground of the last pic? Looks just like mine looked at the biggining of the year.

The shave? Or hump removal... There's a few threads on it here. I'm pretty certain I'll be doing one soon.

Here's a thread on it from 2005: https://www.pirate4x4.com/forum/gener...205-again.html


BTW, the concept of this is badass and I can't wait to see more progress.

Geez thanks for the compliments guys! The 14 is getting replaced by a Torq 14. Hey Brandon it is getting a paddle shifter setup, cannot remember the company but it will be required since it has Mast tuning. He talked to Maximum Transmission and a local guy about building the 6l80. We were working on it yesterday morning talking about different shocks when I got a text from someone giving me shit about running Bilsteins so he may get a big sale on a Fox package If its priced right Lol! Actually the reason for Bilsteins is because the coilovers were supposed to come off his Bronco with the new bypasses. But now the Bronco is staying together so he needs new shocks...... the whole project revolves around the LS3 that was supposed to be for his Bronco but he already way overdrives it with the tired about 150 horse 5.0 so we figured a new rig was the way to go. Its getting a Torq 14 housing btw. I have seen the 205 mod on here a few times, just plate the top back in.
The Bronco on our last trip to the dunes last month -
Had to trim the doors where they were raised for the doorstops. More godamn stink bugs came crawling out. Started getting the cage bent up. Went with a halo style since everything is so boxy on it. I swear the whole roofline is nothing but 90 degree angles everywhere. We did leave the windshield bar 3" back from the frame so there is a little angle to the a-pillars when the windshield is off.

If any of you guys have an M37 and need parts please let me know, I had to haul almost 2 home to get one to build so there is a bunch of extra crap piled behind my barn.
Grand Cherokee is getting a 4 link front with 2.5 coilovers and bumps. Its pretty cool, 1 tons and 40's. Did 2.5 14" Fox rears from Alltech this summer and it ruined it for him. He realized how bad the front worked when we went to Fordyce and parked it until it could get done. He has a set of 36 Iroks buffed except for the center ribs in front and 35" paddles for the dunes.
