clemsonjeep What size holes on what spacing did you go with on your perforated sheet? Where'd you get it from? Do you remember the cost?

Looks good...

mtbrjon The 522 is working well. I still need to fix the steering to get closer to 40* in both directions and add some front bump stops. Love my ARBs.Attachment 1036426
Corey is big fun to wheel with. He uses a 3 point approach meaning he makes 2 attempts to finesse then all hell is breaking loose!

mtbrjon Wheeled Golden Mountain this weekend. Our group were the only rigs there so we were able to run up or down any trail we wanted. I found myself looking for the sickest drops. This is at the top of Honey Bee. Virgin line.Attachment 1036402

bunchr1 I did notice when I had it that it didn't turn very sharp. I tossed it up to the rear being welded, but it also seemed as if it didn't turn as sharp to the left as it did to the right. I tried realigning the pitman arm to "center" a couple times and it never seemed to do anything to help. But, short of my old FJ40 it was my first Straight Axle rig...

I planned that for when I re-do the floor panels with the perforated. Plan to build a removable cover.

When you build another ftoy please call me. All wire it for you.

I did about a dozen 1" welds around the outside and plug welded on the support tube across the center. I jumped up and down on it before I painted it and it didn't budge.

mtbrjon Done! That took way to long....


I'm ready for our Memorial Day trip to Disney OK!! We'll try to make one day at a park closer to home before then to make sure all the changes work as intended. Maybe Wolley's ,Summertown, or Hawk Pride depending on weather.

mtbrjon Got the perforated sheet cut to size and tacked in before I ran out of wire for the mig. I really hate when that happens.

Thanks. I've been building switch/gauge pods on our last couple buggies. I like to be able to see the front wheels and that's tough with a full dash or a huge console. This way I have good visibility and still have easy access to all the wiring should a problem arise.

mtbrjon Need to replace the hard line for the rear brakes from the MC back to the braided hose and reroute it then everything I want to do will be finished for now. I'll wheel like that this summer and slowly build up the front 9" and rear D60 then swap those prob this winter. After that we'll wheel a while as I finish the big turbo engine and save up for an Atlas to go behind my sweet Marlin built AX15 hybrid trans.
