These are yota axles. I am not sure what the bolt pattern is for the stock tracker 5 lug axles. I would measure if I still had them.

Seats all welded up and braced to original sliders. Holes in floor fixed. Noting special just cut the rust and filled with fiber glass patches. Didn't want to spend too much time on the floor. Some day I will probably upgrade and need to cut the floor out anyway.

The tube work through the tunnel is my upper control arm mount. This needed to be beefed up according to my fabricator consultant.



Finished rear roll cage and front shock hoop brace in place. Gusset for the front pan hard. Waiting on my rear control arms to come back from my supplier

Good Friend of mine burning the lower control arms. Cool shadow on the ceiling. I have lots of folks always asking about the little rolling work bench I have. You can see the welder and the plasma on the bottom shelf tucked away.



More Cage work on the back side.



debating on 5.29s and 5.71 gears. I have three sets of tires and wheels for this. 34 LTBs, 37 iroks, and 37 stickies. I am trying to fix one of the stickies now. I am most worried about the 5.71s with stickies.

Anybody running 5.71 with stickies.....

You have an auto. Stick with the 5.29's and low gearing in the t-case. 5.71's are a significant dropoff in strength of the pinion.

Thanks man!

PS: You're build is what had inspired me to get mine going! Thanks so much! I love your cage man!

I am waiting for an attorney to call me back from Tulsa.....So I have some time to waste.

I am using Toy axle up front. I ordered my kit from PSC. I have had great success with them in the past on my other buggy. $1200 with shipping.

http://www.pscmotorsports.com/vehicl...inder-kit.html

But, I need the power steering pump kit for a 1.6 zuki motor.

http://www.pscmotorsports.com/suzuki...-pump-kit.html

Axle Mount:

I wanted it to be a low as possible. I am going to use the stock steering arms. I will put another piece of tube in front to protect the ram once I get all the other parts lined out.
You can see how I made the mount for the ram here:



Here is the link to the mounting tips for the ram.


http://www.pscmotorsports.com/pdf/tech/double_end.pdf

The pump mount is easy. Follow those instructions as well. You don't want to f-up your pulley when mounting.

The pump bracket is bolt on.





Next: I have to mount the resevoir above the pump. That is coming. I needed to get all the coils, orbital and other goodies mounted first before I put the res in.

Tips for mounting reservoir.

http://www.pscmotorsports.com/pdf/te...rvoir_tips.pdf

I bought a auto 15"x7" auto tranny cooler from autozone. That is not installed yet either. That will be last. Pain in the ass to put in and take out during fabbing without bending all the fins.

If you look close in this picture, you will see where I mounted the orbital bracket just above the front driver tire. Just cut the old steering shaft off and weld it to the sector shaft. That is the only part that sucks from PSC. The spline shaft is too large to accept toyota steering shaft/stock splines.



I will post more up as the build goes.

I am using what ever I get my hands on. If I had to guess.

The front

150 bottoms
100 tops

Back- I am still looking for coils that will work. Right now they are 2.5 Coil overs with 3" springs.

250 bottoms
100 tendors.

this is by far my new favorite build! rig looks sick for sure, I love how small it is. I'm sure you have heard it already, but it really does resemble a razr or some type of side x side. excellent work man!

It wil be interesting for sure. I am actually pretty excited. I have been full width and have done almost every trail within 500 miles of Denver. Getting kind of board.

Bit different going backwards, but small, light, and stickies seems to be the ticket these days.

Just read your thread on the toyota section last night. I like where yours is going. I might get some size pictures this weekend. It sits now at 67 inches tall.

Another new Tracker guys question::::::::::

and it is dumb again....

But,

I have this canister looking thing in the motor compartment. I cut the interior fenders off and now I have to relocate it. I believe it is a charcoal canister for the emission system.

Question...Which way is up? There are two ports on the bottom and one on the top. I need find out/picture of original 8v motor bay.

Thanks

I would relocate it to the trash can.

I wish I could, but I don' know how to do the delete and keep the engine running smoothly. I have not registered this bad boy yet and I am worried about the emissions junk. I need to get the title switched to my name and I am not sure how DMV is goint to like it. The guy I bought it from never got the title transfered into his name. I have the title and bill of sale, but it will be interesting.

Anybody have stock motor pictures?

I have a tracker project going at home. I'll try to remember to snap a pic of the engine and post it up here. I know of the canister you speak of but can't recall the orientation.

You can also send me a reminder email if I forget...there will be a two hour delay from me writing this til I get home

5'7" tall huh? thats badass! I have wanted to build a small low pro buggy for a long time, I will do it someday. Yours is inspiring though because most of the buggies that are that small resemble some sort of "moon buggy" styling, which i am not so fond of.

You mentioned that you have ran just about every trail within 500 miles of denver. we are just under 500 miles from denver here in the Black Hills of South Dakota. Have you made it here to run our trails yet? we have some gnarly stuff!

No that I know you are in the Dakotas, you will be my guide when we come up there.

The cage is about head height and the buggy is still on blocks in this photo.

I have 17.5 inches at the belly and I am sitting at about 105" wheel base

Liets,


I am assuming that the single tube just hooks to frame and just dangles....below. What does that hook to?

Thanks for the help.

I would assume so too...because mine has no hose connected to the bottom output and I haven't had any issues.
