Shhh, don't tell anyone about my dancing abilities. People are really gonna start to hate me knowing i can weld and dance so well.

Got my lower links done today. And built a removable crossmember for the upper link to mount to and still be able to pull the trans relatively easily. Upper link tomorrow, then the susp is done for now. Next up, rockers and start shredding on the cage work.

How will you get the front drive shaft to work? Maybe it's the angle of the camera. The trans crossmember looks to be in the way.
ThIs a really cool build. Thanks for posting.

Its going to have a 2 piece front drive shaft. The carrier bearing will mount to the trans crossmember.

What's that front crossmember made from? With the lower links attached to it, I'd brace it more.

Its 1.5 x .120 DOM. And don't worry its no where near finished. Its gonna hit the frame in at least 2 more places and will most likely tie into the t-case crossmember.

I'm just trying to get all my susp mounting points finished so i can begin the cage work and tie the cage into all the susp mounts.

And there it is. Finally got the front end suspension more or less figured out.



Upper link bracket on the vehicle.


Full stuff


Gnarticulated.

Tight tolerances..


Was gonna call it a day but just peeked outside and realized it's raining, so i guess I'll just keep plugging away at this thing.

Really liking the build. I've wanted to see one of these rigs built with a similar axle setup for a while. Good to see something done different. The welds just look ok to me though. Strong enough. Just different technique then I prefer. Keep movin though. Cool rig that I wanna see dented.

Taking a break from laying on my back working under the truck and started my rockers. Here's the start of one side. Might try and get the drivers side to this point by the end of the night as well. We'll see.

Spent the rest of the night cleaning up in and around the truck so its a lil easier to work on. Threw the seats in there to get a feel for how the interior will be laid out. These +2" seats are a little wide for this lil guy, looks like i'll prolly need to sell or trade them for a pair of regular width seats.

Well, put a pretty full day in today. Started and finished the passenger side rocker and got my B-pillar bent up. Pretty happy with how it turned out.

Not a whole lot to show. Haven't touched it in about 3 weeks. Been working on a friend's prerunner to take on back to back mojave rd bachelor party weekends in Vegas.

Did get my new wheels and tires FINALLY. Threw them on the truck for a little motivation. Will work on it tomorrow night but sadly will be out of town again this weekend, so no big updates for at least another week.

Quick question...

What are you going to use as an intermediate shaft between the tranny & T-case? Will the one from a Sammy work in the output of the automatic in your rig or are you going to make up a custom intermediate?

Thanks!

Eric
