That's the only thing I could think of. I appreciate the info. I'm sure several others have done this and wondered what they done. CRASH and any others that have done this what did you do? Thanks again MT4runner.

Got a little more work done. Got the console about finished and seats in. I know the console is probably overkill, I just wanted something different. I got a set of Bilstein coilovers off a guy here a few weeks back and I'm going to undo everything I've done to this point and link it frt. and rear. I'll never get this thing in the woods. Part of it.

Thanks alot for the pic help.

Thanks for the compliment, I still have to get another shift boot for the frt. shifter and I'm looking for something to put around the Pro-stick also. You wouldn't believe how much time I've got in it. It was the first piece of work like that I had done with the bender.

Truck looks sweet, I'll be mounting my 4.3/R150/dual cases this week and then the 60's and 14b in the weeks to come if my link JOINTS EVER GET HERE.

How far forward did you move the front hanger?

It's a tall 78", but in the previous post I'm getting ready in two weeks to pull all the leafs out and go coilovers. It's to tall for me.[IMG][/IMG]

Got a camera finally for Christmas, so I'll show a few more pics for the pic lovers. The fuel cell mount isn't done yet. More bracing to come and a lid to mount other stuff on to maximize space and protect the top. The Dash still has a few indicator lights to be installed yet. [IMG][/IMG],[IMG][/IMG]

I checked with Sky on that. No go. He told me I needed his steering arms, that the ratio was correct for the 2 to correct my problem. Lets just say I got'em. Skys (Sky-Manufacturing) been awesome to deal with, I'm sure everyone knows that, but a guy like that doesn't get the kudos he probably deserves.

Back from the dead hopefully

It's been along time, but today me and a buddy hauled the truck to Tim at Bent Fabrications (builder of the conquistador in General forum) and we are looking at him building basically a buggy chassis and mounting the cab and doghouse on it. I want to keep the cab for the comfort and his chassis idea will be a cool custom. Hopefully we can make this happen soon and I'll post pics if we do. It should be pretty cool. This guy has some good skills and does great work. Look at his toyota chassis build thread in here. Cool idea.

Your project looks great, I'm sure it's gonna be even better with a new chassis under it. I can't wait to see pics of it. Holy crap!!!!!!!

Anyway I read where you used 4" All-Pro springs, but who's crossmember and front shackles did you use? I am looking for alternatives (besides making my own) to the Sky full width kit (nothing wrong with it, just looking for alternatives before I buy). Thanks for your help.

Allen came to me wanting to link his truck front and rear... After some time in the shop and kicking around a bunch of ideas I sent him home with lots to think about. The final decision was to ditch the old frame completely and bring me his drive line and cab. From there I set out to build the bottom part of one of our Evolution GP truck chassis and set his cab down on it. So far the project is coming along good, don't get me wrong, there are several changes made to get the cab to fit the chassis base.... But in the end, Allen is essentially going to have all the performance and stance of a full buggy yet still have the good looks of his cab too.









more details soon...

-Tim

Tim,
The first thing that came to mind man is "wow". That's what i was hoping for and your pulling it off very well. Can't wait to see more pics and get up there this weekend. I've got to get some colors together quick to get this tidied up a little.

Awesome stance.

Allen

Still wanting to use the stock steering box... I thought a 3 link design would be perfect.

With a new rolling chassis ready, It was time to set the cab back on and see if it will fit....



I had to rig up a hoist in the ceiling of the shop to pull the cab up until we could roll the chassis back under the cab. Some how this pic reminds me of most Toy builds



With the cab over the engine, I could mark out how much firewall to start cutting...



After a little cutting the cab sat down just as planned.

Now... here is where this project is interesting for me... I built the chassis bottom and placed the engine and suspension just as if I was building one of the new Truck chassis.... Look at how far back and down this motor is compared to where it would be in the stock location in the truck. This is a perfect demonstration of how much difference the Evo GP chassis offers in balance and performance over keeping your truck!! Like I said, Allen will really be going home with a buggy that has a Toy cab stuck on it

Man I don't have to worry about the heater issue now, just duckwork. That is crazy how that engine sets back. I might box end under the hood and make a trunk, not really.

You have TOTALLY FUNKED it up. BAD ASS man.........
