Hey Clint, I thought you all forgot about me. Then I realized everyone was gearing up for the Hammers. This weekend is the shakedown. Got any plans???? As far as the new flavor, definitely need to come over a hoist a beer!

The whole thing is impressive. How well do the flexible brake lines work? Do you make all of them custom? Where do you get the parts? Any info on them would be great.

Awesome build, I have a 73cj that I am planning on 60s front and rear with 42 Iroks, I boxed the frame several years ago but you have inspired me to build a tube chasis and still use my tub. What is your belly height,wheelbase and did you use 4link calculator when designing your suspension?

All the brake lines came from Day Motorsports, cheapest place to buy pre made lines. http://www.daymotorsports.com/product/49/BRAKE-LINES

My belly height is 21" and 105" wheel base. What's a 4 link calculator?
I just got back from the shake down.

Do you remember what the lengths of your front and rear links are? With mine I'm looking at almost 4' fronts and 3' rears (for the lowers) and I'm not sure how that would handle, it seems off to me.

The 105" worked great, although I didn't push it too hard. The lower links are some Tera Flex control arms from a TJ long arm kit. I swiped them when we built our Brute. I think they are about three feet long. Heres one more pic, my camera took a shit on me, so I only have a few.

looks great! congrats on the completion!

Did you use bend tech pro to design your chassis / cage? I'm in the designing phase of the next ride and i love the way you made a tube buggy look full bodied. I might borrow some of your sub frame lines if you're cool with that.

Looks like some HDR photo editting.

Sweet buggy though & way to make the theme look good while not going overboard with it.

HDR means High Dynamic Ranging, and it's just a photoshop technique where you take 3 pictures: a normal picture, a picture wherethe brightness is very high, then a very dark picture and put the three together. Makes for one cool picture, google it and you will find some cool stuff. Sorry for the hijack.
