The Goat Built Ibex brackets worked great. I used them for the upper 4 link mounts and steering mounts. The lower control arm mounts are from Ballistic. If I were to do it again I would have probably gone with the Artec lower control arm brackets. Mainly due to the fact that I waited over a month for the Ballistic ones to show up after I ordered them.

I will be using the JHF high steer kit that he has developed for the 05+ axles. Hoping to be able to get them ordered from him this week.

Mounted up a tire to check clearances. Then squared up the axle in anticipation for the links to be built. The rear axle ended up a little further back than where it is in these photos. Hope to have the rear, and possibly the front links complete by the end of the weekend.

That is near full bump within a couple inches.

Thank you. Ride height will be approximately 5-6" higher than where it currently sits in the photos. Going to run 14" struts mounted at a slight angle with 50/50 up/down travel.

Rear 4 link is complete. All that is left is mounting the shocks. Next up will be the front 4 link, then building out the front frame and engine cage. After that, all that is left is small stuff like gussets, seat belt tabs, tabs for skins & skids, etc. After researching skid material, I'm thinking of getting some AR plate to do the belly and boat side skids. My plan is to use 3/16" AR400. Anyway, here are some pics from today. Lowers are 47 1/4" long, and uppers are about 47".

Quick update.

I ended up hacking back the frame all the way to the motor mounts in the front, and mounted my front upper control arms to the front boat side tubing. I think the front link geometry resembles something similar to the Eliminator buggies, at least up top. This made for the best packaging, most triangulation, longest links, and simplest package for the front 4 link while still allowing room for the 1 piece front driveshaft I plan on running.

While on vacation, I did quite a bit of reading and decided I'm going to do a SM420 transmission swap as well to get me the 7.05:1 granny gear. I've already built the parts list and have started ordering everything needed. I plan to swap in a Dana 300 at the same time (assuming I can find one) and will flip it as well as install twin sticks. If anyone happens to know of a stock Dana 300 for sale, please let me know.

Definitely a cool build. You are doing a lot in a small space! Are you concerned with the rear steer hitting the links? Its hard to tell in the pics but it doesn't look like it has much room before they make contact.

Thanks! I have a little bit of a concern on the rear rear tires contacting the lower links at full lock. I won't know for sure until I get the ram installed. If anything, I might limit the stroke on the ram to keep them from hitting. If the tires were smaller, like 44's or 42's, I don't think I'd have a problem even with full stroke on the ram.

Front 4 link is complete. Now I just need to rebuild the front frame section out of tube, mount the grill, radiator, and shocks, and it will be a roller. Also going to build out an engine cage to protect the engine and radiator as well as strengthen the chassis. Planning on sticking the winch behind the grill. I went to the local pick-a-part and bought a bunch of Volvo fans with relays. Also grabbed some BMW temp switches to go along with them. I bought a few extra fans with relays while I was there if anyone is interested in buying a couple from me.

Winch. Thanks Trout of Death! Will be getting a new winch rope for it when it's all said and done.

$60 plus shipping for a fan with the relay. I could probably meet you somewhere in Houston so we wouldn't have to ship them.

You must have access to a very large auto recycler! All those 60's! Those fans look pretty sweet as well.

Build is looking good as well.

More progress. Front frame taking shape, winch mounted, radiator mounted, fan shroud built and mounted, ORI's half mounted, grill shortened and mounted. My new brake master cylinder and PSC steering kit came in yesterday.
