I'll have all the parts for 9" axles with 60 outers soon. Can't wait. I've always limited how far I push my rig by my axle assembly strength. Now when I break something it's going to be really bad!!

We can wheel here year round. Meet us over in Disney OK. That would be a little closer. Looks like 16 hours for you +/-. There's a wide variety of terrain mixed with some cool locals. You'd fit right in !!!

It's on my wish list. For some reason I thought that place was in the dakotas. My wife is just about to have our next son so I think this summer is out. Ok is doable for sure though!

Now have a TG front housing (had this one stashed away for a few years), front V6 ARB with 5.29, mini CO2 bottle( for now, will rig up compressor later), rear V6 ARB with 5.29, a full set of remote res Bilstein 7100s, full leaf packs front and rear, hacked out everything in the back of the rig for a new rear bed area, rear shock mounts upper and lower, and battery and propane bottle relocation.

Also doing some prep work for rear cage re-work and rear bench seat later this year.

I found this very cool perforated steel sheetmetal for the rear bed and floor pans. It has 1/4" holes on 1/2" centers, .125 thick and it's steel so I can weld it in. It won't hold muddy water or sand and I can easily bolt stuff to it with 1/4" bolts. The place I bought from has tons of different configurations with different home sizes and offsets. I'll post pics of all of this in the next couple days.

Here's a link to the company I bought the perforated sheet metal from. Check out their site but be warned this shit is $$$!!!!

It came in a 4'x10 sheet so if I'm very conservative with it I figure I can use on 3-4 rigs to ease the $$ pain a bit.

Specialty Steel Fabricator & Distributor
I've seen tons of that perforated metal on different kinds of industrial equipment (mostly stainless on food processing equip), never priced it out though.

A lil google searching found a couple other places in TN that sell perforated sheet. Here's one in east TN (Cleveland)

H&K Perforating Company - Specializing in Perforated Metal

I may have to cheap out and go with the ol "trailer bed" expanded metal though

If you only need a small amount let me know dimensions. I may be willing to part with a bit of this.

Moved bottles in some, remounted rear shocks and replaced with 7100 Bilsteins. Built subframe for new rear deck. Cutting the perforated sheet this morning and installing it later this week.

I like these air toggles for the ARBs and they work great mounted "Hobie style" on the shifter. Running a small CO2 tank for the lockers for now but switching to a compressor in the future.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

That's not really so relevant as Hobie's old Ftoy has hit marks everywhere.....



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