I guess its that time of the year were you try to find something to do over the winter. I have been playing with the idea of making the sawzall into more of a buggy ditching the leafs in the front and going with a 3 link and cutting the cab out of the truck. I guess if you have a few beers with some buddies and you are in your new shop and there is a sawzall around this is what happens.

The plan is to cut out all of the cab. Build a firewall. Added some more tubing to the exo, now buggy frame. The great thing about when we built the exo we keep everything close to the cab. I always said if I cut the cab out of the sawzall it will still look like a Toyota. Well I guess it was time to find out right...lol. After I get all of the tube work done I am going to ditch the leafs and build a 3link panhard with fox shocks in the front.

You decided to keep the firewall? All in all it's definately cleaner and safer to keep it. I'm looking forward to see how you link the front, keep us posted.

Then the next big thing to do is cut up the wire harness and clean that part up.

Be carefull. I tried this and fawked mine up. It seems there are systems that are unrelated but tied together in the harness. If I did it again I'd get the motor running and remove wires with the engine running. I've seen a few people on here that have good luck doing this on the garage floor but I SUCK at anything more then the most basic wiring.
