I see you have radius arms in the rear. Maybe you want them.

The reason I comment is, When I first started my project, that's what I did. I liked the simplicity. But I didn't completely understand radius arms. Unless you have allot of rubber at the attachments, they won't flex. I'm not really building a rock crawler and don't believe in massive flex. BUT, my first attempt had almost no flex. In fact, it flexed mostly from the frame. The radius arms act as a giant anti-roll bar.

I was afraid of cracking the frame and ended up making one side a radius arm and the other side just a single link. This flexes lots. The only issue I can imagine is the whole truck would twist under major excelleration. I don't have big power, so not an issue for me. In tests, it has no negative problems.

In front of my project I did radius arms. These were basically stock superduty. I found these were good for "on road" manners. I end up making a "pin-able" radius arm on one side. This gave good on road manners and lots of flex off road. (With the pin removed) I couldn't run without the pin on road because hard braking would make one side dive.

I have some pics of testing with both radius arms. I will try to find them.

Edit, I found description and testing of my front set up. Post 49 and 50. (Link below) It appears I don't have the rear testing in this thread. I'll see if I can dig up the pics. (They show better what I mean)

It's because of the radius arms acting as sway bars I have chosen them.

I had an extremly stable car on leaf springs and I want to keep the car that way.

That's OK if it's what you want. Here's a pic of what I mean. You might not see it here, but the right tire is off the ground. The frame is square to the ground in the front. Obviously there's a lot of stress on the frame. If the frame were braced more, there would be less flex. There is tremendous stress on the links also. (If you have heavy tires)



Here's the same truck with a single link on one side. Frame is not twisted from front to back.

Here are the last pictures from the assemble of the car.

It was a totally mad race all Christmas to finish the car.
I wanted to get the car finished for our local 4x4 meet on the 26/12-19 because last time I drove it was 26/12-17 so if I manage to make it the build had been under 2 years.

20191225_025721
The hoses for brakes, axle vent and ARB goes behind the big hoses for the steering ram.

20191225_182734
On the 25/12 I got help from Ernie to mount the last parts I couldn't do by my self, then of to Christmas dinner with my family at my sisters plays.

20191225_214043

20191225_214059

20191226_024530

I spoke too Ernie when he drove in to the 4x4 meet I drove home to have a shower, breakfast and pick up my youngest son after an all nighter in the workshop. Now I had been awake for 22 hours and spent 17 of them in the workshop.

When I was back in the shop after 1,5 hour me and my son mounted the headlights and tightened the bolts to the seats and then of to the 4x4 meet with the Willys.

I'm very happy that it all worked out.

A Giant thanks to my wife that supported me and let me spend so many hours in the workshop before and under Christmas.

It sits a little low in the rear, the coil-overs had not been adjusted at all, it's fixed now.

I'm really happy with how it all looks because it's really close to my vision.

I will show more pictures over the next days

Looks great! Looks wide for the height, so should be very stable on a side hill. Color looks great to! Any bugs besides the spring height? How much did you get to run it?
