I don’t know.... about another build thread... and who would care about a single seat rear engine moon buggy on portals that does amazing things........?:laughing:

I’d probably just do it all wrong anyways!:rolleyes:

Ok as promised a few pics.....













Now for some specs....

Top of cab 81"
fender height at front wheel center 55"
Belly 24" (which is the same as the sliders since they are flush with the bottom of the frame)
8" of uptravel/8" down

And the pic where it is nose to nose with my completely stock 87 3/4 ton....its 7" taller but when measured center for the front hub to the fender top..... its only 2" difference.... so its like my 3/4 ton with a 2" lift and 41.5 tall tires!!

Im still gonna keep after it to finish it but real testing may not happen till snow falls.... Im actually excited to get it out and blast some dirt roads and see how much all that uptravel smooths the ride quality.

The rear steer sure made it nice to back into my shop without needing to pull up to readjust...and I only hit my metal table once! :laughing:

Makes me want a full size again. :smokin:
Yeah I like how this is turning out so far but Fuul RETARD has made it take a lot longer than I had hoped....

Next major hurdle is finish the interior or at least the tube, dash and all the seats with belts!

I have bedsides and a tailgate going on it also ,to keep it looking like a truck.
Can't wait to see how it looks with bedsides at the least. The front fender cuts look good. Retains somewhat of a stock look.
Keep this going.
