Another 4Locked Buggy *Build Thread*

What's up everyone. I'm Cal the other half of 4Locked Films. I started on my buggy build about a month ago, it's been 3 long years of collecting parts after scrapping my Cherokee. Can't wait to get this thing done and actually have a seat to ride in of my own, for any of you guys who have wheeled with us I'm the guy always juggling the camera while asking for a ride, walking the trail, and bull riding Graeme's single seater...Here's some basics:
2 Seater (52" wide)
.095 Wall DOM,.120 wall DOM,.188 wall DOM
22re, 5 speed, stock duals
16" SAW airshocks *goal* is 8in uptravel in rear, 6in uptravel in front, for jumping of course
60/14b, 5.13's
Propane (425 Impco, Model E, VVF30), Turbo (Garrett T15)
39.5 Iroks
I want to say thanks to a few people:
Graeme-The "G-Fab" shop and tools...and a ton of parts
Shawn-GreatLakeOffroad.com
Brian-DriveLineTech.com

And now for the pics, I'll keep um' coming...I work on it every week so I'll try to keep everyone updated. If you have any questions feel free to shoot away.
-Cal


This next ones full bump.



Adjustable upper fronts.

Adjustable upper rears.

Here you can see the old t-case mount...Decided to change it about a week ago.

Here is the new t-case mount...Much better design, everyone who came by thought the first one was shit so I re-designed.

Is anyone running an air bump and willing to get me the length at full bump of the air bump past the retaining collar? I don't have the air bumps yet but want to set up the canister and need to know where to mount the canister at full bump. That make sense?

Yes, there is a lot of stitch welds, I feel confident in the welds holding but only time will tell...Stuff like link tabs, motor mounts, etc. are continuous welds burned hot. The stitching is all hot settings too besides some of the sheetmetal stuff. I know its a heated debate but I haven't really followed much of it, I don't consider myself a professionally trained welder, by any means, like many of the members on here do.

This is Dave, I love how the shock hoops and bumper type deal came together, hope to see even more done when I stop by to check it out this weekend.

rajincajingt, Your all good man, I didn't take it the wrong way, your right there is a debate out there about the strength of stitch welds if not done properly...and I may not be doing it properly,haha.
Here is some pics of the sway bar set up. I picked up the parts from some stock car place, I think Stockcarproducts.com or something.

It sits level at ride


And here is the hood I'm going to try to use, it's an Audi A4 carbon fiber/fiberglass hood that I got for free off Craigslist, going to cut it down and resurface, the body line on there actually works out great and is going to be almost exactly were my cut is with the shock hoops poppin out about 2-3"

Subscribed.

I have all of the same parts you are working with, saw shocks, ron davis radiator, drivetrain etc. etc.

I have been kind of stumped but seeing how you have already built the floor, links and set the motor and drive train seams like a hell of idea, I even noticed you have seat tabs. Call me a fool but I never thought of mounting the seats until mine was further along than just the floor. Good idea.

Thanks everyone, Yeah my whole deal was I wanted to build it from the ground up, makes easier access to things when there isn't a bunch of tubes in your way. You see a lot of guys with a full chassis (probably cause they bought it) and not a single mount or tab when they start...your like climbing through the jungle gym everytime you want to weld something.

I think I'm going to go with 4" SAW or FOA's. Probably different on full bump to retaining collar size...??

Looks great!
What's the diameter of the torsion bar?
Do you plan to reinforce the sway bar housing where it attaches to the chassis?

The back and forth torque from the sway bar likes to tear welds and peel it off the frame, FME.
