Buggy Pics...

While ALL my buddies were wheelin in Johnson Valley, Glamis, or Table Mesa, I was stuck at home building this. I ended up running out of 1 3/4" tube so I couldn't finish it, also I was reluctant to start the tube required for support of the coilover suspension until I actually get the axles under it. I realize it's completely my fault for the shitty timing. I just figured I'd subject myself to some abuse here...

Specs are as follows:

RC D60 Front 5.13:1, ARB, Full Hydro Hi Steer, CTM's, Superior Shafts, disc brakes.

D60 Full Float rear 5.13:1, ARB, Superior shafts, Disc brakes.

455 Buick Big Block, TA Aluminum Heads, Roller Rockers,& Intake, headers, Cam, Crower rods, SRE Forged pistons, a buncha other stuff but bottom line is 500HP natural and an Additional 100HP in NO2...
(Motor weighs the same as an all cast Iron SBC)
TH400 built to handle the HP
Atlas II with 32 spline shafts all around

16" Fox coilover shocks 4 link Front and Rear RE joints

Renegade seats, onboard welder, chassis is an air tank, Blaah, blaah, blaaahh.. want more details or have any questions just ask

Looks good. If it were mine I'd reduce the amount of front frame you've got there. Seems like it could get in the way if you are planning on keeping it low. Beyond the motor mounts it isn't doing much anyway...

Once again, looks good!

Yeah, minus anywhere from $2500 to $6000 for the chassis!
I've already got all the hard parts, most of them were under my old rig...

Unsure what you mean, in front of the motor mounts I plan on running a winch. behind the motor mounts I'm using it to help support the weight of the vehicle. either way, I just feel better about having the Rectangle tube there for strength as far as heigth it'll be about 35" to the top of the frame and 24" at the transfer case.

I wanted a fresh start on something that looked a little better, was lighter, a better all around 4 wheeler, and was designed to be a buggy from the start, instead of a buggy inside a Willys tub. This one will be allot more "Flashy" than the old one for sure.
