:D

Well is it ever done yes we did the SOA this weekend and it went pritty smooth.

Probelms

1. it looks like a monster truck
2. back spacing on my 39" boggers I just bought
3. wrong wheels part of number 2
4. cant seem to get brakes to feel like I have any peddle
5. highsteer not high enough ( I know My shackles are too long)
6. driveshaft pattern drilled wrong (dont ask)
7. Knuckles need to be rebuilt
8. front tire hits with 39's goes back to the spacing
9. IT LOOKS FAWKIN AWESOME ( I think )


most of my problems go away when I put my 35's back on but they look like bicycle tires

other than all of that it rides like a caddy I could not believe it
give me all the critism you can or just tell me what you think

hopefully woody will post some pics for me soon

the boss is on vacation and I have not gotten my red star no pics for me

Wow, 39" Boggers? Are you running rear disks or planning to? Be careful, the rear axle shafts won't last long with those big tires and heavy truck!

Let's see pics, I'm psyeched to see what a 60 with 39's looks like!

You need to hire a goallie... We can't have a buncha smitty jr.'s running around in their jacked up little tykes buggies terrorizing all the God-fearing Virginians. :flipoff2:

That pig is looking GOOD. I like it w/ the 39's.



Can't wait for Paragon... we still doing that in the spring?

Go with some 2 inch back spaced rims. That would be bad ass. Just a little wider and the stance would be perfect. I love it!! :D

In concept I guess that the spacers are the same as the 2 inch backspace wheels but are the tough enough, I am pritty hard on my truck ie the wrinkles down the driver side

and has any body had problems bleeding the brake system on a 62 before I cut of the anti lock brake arm off the axle would that have anything to do with it
:mad:

What backspacing are you running now

I have a set of 4 35x15 claws on 15x10 aluminium wheels bs 3.5

the set in the picture is 4 39 boggers 2 on 15x8 3.5bs and 2 on 15x10 with 4bs but the 8 wrap so much that they are to close:mad:

I have gone both routes....2" BS wheels and 2" spacers.

IF YOU DO WHAT www.performancewheel.com SAYS, then you will not have a problem with the billet spacers holding up.

When I first got spacers a couple of years ago, I tightened the crap out of them and used red locktite to hold them on.

2 months later, I almost lost a tire in Poteau, OK.

This time, I did what they told me. I installed them, wheeled the crap out of it for 2 days and then came back and tightened the crap out of them.

When I decided to go to my TR Beadlocks so I could be like my idol Mace, I went to remove the spacers and they damn near killed me trying to get them off. I broke a 1/2" drive 13/16 socket getting them off :eek:

Anyway, I am with Woody, get some 2" spacers from Performance or see if Alan at Rock Buggy can get 2" spacers for you.

thanks for the info on the wheel spacers that was what I hoped you would say

spacers are less expensive than new wheels and that goes a long way with me right now

Holy Crap it looks awesome smtyblt! :eek:

highsteer not high enough ( I know My shackles are too long)
Couldn't you get a lower arm off the box?
front tire hits with 39's goes back to the spacing
Looks like you're grooving the Bogger alright. And the spring is right there too if you want to turn. What about the fender? My 35s will just hit the front of the front fender.

How about the front of the rear fender, it looks tight too. Are you trimming or lowering the stops?
IT LOOKS FAWKIN AWESOME ( I think )
Agreed !!! :flipoff2:

Good Luck,
