Tj buggy "hot tamale"

Even though it is already built I decided to make a build thread to document all my progress pictures somewhere besides Facebook.
Before this build I had a 92 Yj with 4 link rear and 106" wheelbase. Decided to start over and build something more capable and picked up a 1998 tj buggy project chassis.
Was not sure what my plan was but wanted to keep it simple.

Got it into the shop and started mocking things up at 115" wheelbase with a 05 super duty d60 and a 35 spline ford 9" rear. Cut the back of the cage off because it was crooked and had lots of unwelded large gaps.

This is really such an easy thing to do I have doubts about your ability to build a hardcore rig.

However, In the interests of actually getting to see your pictures here are the directions

Step one go to this screen:



Step two type your message can click the image icon (circled in Red)


Step three In the pop-up window type the address to the picture from the hosting provider and click ok



Step four Hit submit


Step five Enjoy your new pics and wait for someone to call you a faggot, question your manhood, and/or sow hate and discontent. You did post in hardcore after all. lol


Now fix your damn pics so we can see the Jeep P0RN.
Joel.

Holy Frackin' Large Pics Batman...

Maybe resize them prior to posting. that way the readers don't have to be continually scrolling left and right.

Just a thought.

Leave off everything before the https and after the .jpg
so this
Code:
<img src="https://i.ibb.co/Y26fQpd/IMG-1526.jpg" alt="IMG-1526" border="0" />
becomes this
Code:
https://i.ibb.co/Y26fQpd/IMG-1526.jpg
You has it on one post. lol.

I use Dropbox to host all my photos. others use IMGUR. I've seen one that uses their own servers to host the photos as well.

All of your photos that I have tried to access are there and accessible. The issue is the coding that you put in your post.

Google is what I use, much better since my phone backs up to it and I don't have to do anything when I get on the laptop.

When you paste the link into the image pop up use the code on IMGBB for "Direct Link"

Great. however, I would have just edited the original post to make the pictures work with the resized one.

Alright well I cleaned up all the non working and massive pictures and I think I know what I'm doing now.
After I got some progress done I was trying to figure out where to keep going with fixing the previous tube work. And the sawzall came out again a few more times which was great for me to get a fresh start.

Oddly enough, I canít see a single picture in your build thread on my iPad. However looking at it on my pc at work I can see all of them.

Yea, Apparently, I need to change all the links from DL=1 to RAW=1. I just haven't done it.

Thanks.
Next was building my subframe and start on the sliders.
I chose to triangulate the front lower links for a few reasons, first was tire clearance because my goal was to clear around 45 degrees of steering angle, another was because of the engine being long and the frame being in the way I couldn't get enough triangulation with the uppers. To mount the lower crossmember and have a flat belly and engine skid it made sense to build a subframe to mount the belly skid to.to keep from having lots of damage to the bottom I made the subframe and all slider tubes from 1/4" wall.

More progress with tubing, definitely was learning along the way, the only experience i had with tubing was adding on to my Yj's stock cage.

Cut the cowl off to be able to fully weld in some front supports. The cowl was later welded back on.

I noticed your ram mount on the front of the truss, it looks super clean.
Did you buy that from artec like that or is that something you made?

I actually had Jesse Haines make that for me when I ordered my steering arms from him. I seen it on one of his buggys and liked how clean it looked.

Got the rear 14" shocks mounted and cycled and mounted my seats. Also built a radiator hoop and some headlight mounts.

Started cycling the front suspension with my two piece driveline mocked up. I ended up finding some 1350/1410 combination driveshafts at a local off road swap meet and cut them down to work for me. For the carrier bearing I used a stainless pillow block bearing on a Dana 60 pinion that I cut the gear off and had it machined to fit inside 2" 1/4" wall tubing. Then made a plate to mount the bearing to my link crossmember.

Since most the mockup was done it was time to strip down and fully weld/ paint some things.
