Looks great. What are your plans for rear seat clearances? I did a 50” PRP bench seat and had to get creative with the axle clearance around the seat. What track width are you shooting for? I did a similar build a few years ago, link is above.
I ended up with pretty much the same measurements. 118 wb, 84.5” track width, and 50” prp. I made the rear as tight as possible and ended up with about 4” up travel before the tires rub the inner well I made the inner wells tight to the seat and are just 1/8”plate, not tubing there. Mine is super low to be on 40s so with a higher ride height I could get a narrower track width. I was able to get mine a lot lower by not running a truss on the rear axle and running the lower links parallel. Not sure on the tub stretch since I cut it off at the doors and tubed the rest, I wo7ld guess about 20”. It’s just skinned to look like a jeep tub.Looks good. How much did you stretch yours? It looks like I’m more body stretch, and pushing my front axle not as far forward as yours. I’m a 24” stretch and looking at a 118”WB. From my measurements I think I can fit a 53” PRP bench. My axles are 70.5” WMS, and looking at an 84” track width.
Wow, that’s crazy wide. 54” seems to be about the max I can fit.Love your concept I’ll be following along as well. The suicide doors sound like a great idea. I’m shooting to squeeze a 56” bench between the tub rails as I measure 55-1/2” between the tub and hope to have the bench far enough in front of the rear axle to clear along with 2” spacers on the full width axles....we shall see.
I wish, oldest is three with twin 6 month olds. The three year old loves getting out to the shop though.Just bring them out to the shop and work um real hard. They'll sweat the sick out.
Made my kids afraid to get sick.:flipoff2:
It's been said already, but really cool out of the box build. Certainly not cutting any corners on the process or the parts list!
Looking forward to more progress.
